Distributing a hardened SQL Express 2014 Instance
Posted on 2014-07-29
I have an instance of SQL Express 2014 that I have hardened using the Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG). Now I have to ensure that my new and existing customers well over 100 of them get a hardened installation.
Going to each machine and spending 1-2 days implementing the STIG is not a viable solution.
My question is:
Is there a way to distribute my entire instance including all db's, triggers, stored procedures, users, roles, permissions etc?
