Starting the DataServer processes

Before you create a schema holder, you must start the DataServer processes. This section provides brief instructions for starting the processes that make up the local and remote DataServers on host and client machines. For more information on starting the DataServer processes, see Connecting the DataServer
The following instructions use default executable names. If you built custom executables, substitute those names. When creating a schema holder, the startup syntax is the same whether you are running a local DataServer or using Oracle Networking.

a. Start the broker you configured for the Oracle DataServer.
b. Run the client executable (_progres) on the client machine.
2. To start a remote DataServer process in Windows using a Windows client:
