Configuring the DataServer : Creating, Maintaining, and Deploying a schema holder : Setting up a schema holder as a Windows service

Setting up a schema holder as a Windows service

The schema holder can reside in the Windows host or on the client machine. A schema holder on a client machine (a local schema holder) performs better. However, a schema holder in the Windows host (a remote schema holder) might be easier to maintain in a multi-user environment. Setting up the schema holder so that it can run as a native Windows service means that the schema holder can run without users connected to it. Its availability is not dependent on any one user connection.
To set up a remote schema holder in a Windows host and make it accessible to multiple users, configure a database server using OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer. By default, the server will be started as a Windows service. See OpenEdge Data Management: Database for a complete description of how to configure a database server.
