Configuring the DataServer in the Windows host

Before you can run the DataServer modules in the Windows host, you must set environment variables. OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer utility provides a graphical interface that allows you to manage and configure the DataServer host environment. See Configuring the DataServer in the Unified Broker framework for instructions.
If you do not choose to use OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer and want to set environment variables manually, see the table below.
To use the command line to configure the DataServer modules:
1. Open the Proenv window from your installation folder.
2. Set the required variables, as described in the following table.
Table 26. DataServer for Oracle environment variables
The pathname of the directory where you installed Oracle.
The identifier for the Oracle instance you are accessing.
The name of the executable (including the path) of the Oracle DataServer. If you are not using the default DataServer executable, _orasrv.exe, set ORASRV to point to the appropriate executable.
The pathname of your default OpenEdge startup (.pf) file.To set the Message Buffer Size (-Mm) startup parameter for the broker to a value different from the 1924 default buffer size, you must set the PROSTARTUP environmentvariable equal to the path and name of the .pf file that contains the -Mm parameter. This approach ensures that your value is recognized and therefore used by the broker when it starts. Only Windows clients must use this technique.
Note: If you use the command line utility and intend to set the -Mm startup parameter to a value other than 1024, you must use the .pf file with the PROSTARTUP variable set.
3. Start the broker. See Starting the DataServer processes for instructions to start the DataServer processes from the command line.
Once the broker is running, you can build the schema holder for the Oracle database. See Creating, Maintaining, and Deploying a schema holder for instructions.
