    I believe unless you are using BarTender Enterprise the System Database needs to be a local install. You would need to use the Administration Console settings to adjust the config of this and link to a remote System Database

    Hi Peter Thane and thanks for your reply,

    We use Enterprise but we keep everything local to ensure continued production in case of a WAN failure.
    My question was, why the default location of the database files in SQL Server is not respected when creating the Datastore database. The file path is probably hard-coded in the database-create script. And the scripts they provide to create your own database in "C:\Program Files\Seagull\BarTender 2022\Database" don't seem to match the implicit database setup either.

    Nevermind, i'll run the standard installation and then move the database files manually to the D drive, so our system admins are happy.

    Hi Peter/Harald,

    Please guide us on the manual copy of the database files to another Drive (Other than OS Drive).
