Hi @hslitracy 

Thank you for reaching out to us for clarification.

We need to understand first understand that ENS is an endpoint product which gets installed on every machine in your environment and do not require SQL to run or I can say SQL is not required to install ENS on workstation or Server.

But, If you are using EPO in your environment which is a centralize console managing ENSTP installed machine from one server, On that EPO Server we will require a SQL to store data of EPO Events and information.

Now if we are looking for Supported versions of SQL for EPO then please refer below Table and get clarification.

icrosoft SQL versions Minimum Supported Versions
ePO
5.10
ePO
5.9.1
ePO
5.9.0

 
SQL Server 2019 Express
SQL Server 2019

SQL Server 2017 Express Yes Yes No
SQL Server 2017 Yes Yes No

1 ePO 5.x requires Service Pack 1 or later, for SQL Server 2008.

To clarify. I currently have an EPO 5.9 running with a SQL Server 2008 database. Do I need to upgrade the SQL server version in order to move from EPO to ENS?

To clarify again. I meant migrating from VSE to ENS.

Thanks for the information. This is exactly what I needed.

Hi @hslitracy ,

Thank you for checking back with us,

Yes, If you are performing migration from VSE to ENS, You do not need SQL to be installed on machine to install ENS but you will need SQL to be installed on EPO server to store information related to machines and policy configurations.

Hope this clarifies your question.
