The production database is hosted by a Microsoft SQL Server. The database stores the data that is collected from the assets. The database also stores the results of evaluation jobs. The database stores information about the policies that you create and about the entitlement control points. If you use the Symantec Response Assessment module with the Control Compliance Suite, the Response Assessment data is also stored in the production database.
The production database requires Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SP2. The Control Compliance Suite requires a single production database. The production database can share a host server with the Control Compliance Suite Directory, or it can be hosted by a dedicated server. The production database can be hosted on the same SQL Server as the reporting database, or on another SQL Server.
