I was the one who wrote the support for SQL Server in Snort.  For clarification, no it does not use ODBC.  Rather, it uses SQL Server's "DBLIB".  To get the TSQL script for creating tables/indexes, you will need to download the Snort source code.  In there, you can find the TSQL script in the "contrib" directory (it's a file called "create_mssql").  To enable logging to the SQL Server database, there should be an example in the "snort.conf" file.

To install Snort (with SQL Server support) on a Win32 machine, it is reasonably comparable to installing Snort with support for MySQL, while remembering to make any reasonable replacements of "MySQL" with "SQL Server".  The instructions can be found here:

  I discovered this file out on the SD website.  It looks as if they have compiled Snort with support for Microsoft SQL Server.  I imagine this is via ODBC but I am looking for some more info.  I will try to contact them as well, but I thought I would post here and see if anyone would chime in.  I plan on playing with this today but I thought I would ask if anyone has TSQL scripts for table creation.  If not I will see what I can do with the MySql setup script.  If I am successful I will post the TSQL up for anyone that is interested.
