When using MS-SQL as a relational database for IBM Mobile Connect, make sure to consider the following requirements:
a) The account used to connect to the MS-SQL server needs the right to create databases. The installation Wizard provided with IBM Mobile Connect 6.1.5 does not connect to existing databases but tries to create new ones. After installation, the right to create databases can be removed from this user account.
b) The name of the databases to be created can be changed. If you need to change the default, make sure to use names with 8 or less characters and avoid special (non ASCII) characters.
