  • It's pretty easy. When you create the new web application through Central Administration, it will prompt you for the SQL Instance and database name to use, along with credentials to use to access it.

  • HI,

    This can be done very easily.

    While creating central admin UI then at the time of creation you will find an option to add the same in a textbox.

    You need to make sure that the account you are using to create web application should have sufficient rights in the database as well.

     

    I hope this will help you out.

    Thanks,

  • Eblogin,

    Could you be specific on your question? As my understanding from the above, you basically want to attach the content database exist in SQL server while creating a new web application, Am i correct? If so, just create the web application and while it ask to provide the DB name, you can paste/write the content database name exist in SQL instance, that will get attach to the new web application. But ensure this content DB is not connected to any of the site collection within the farm.

    If you want to create a new web application with new content DB, then pass the SQL instance along with content DB name and ensure that your farm account has DB creator and Security Admins roles on the DB server, that will allow you to create the new DB for your web application.
