Planning for Change Data Capture : Enabling CDC

Enabling CDC

Before you can use Change Data Capture to track your changes, you must enable your database. There are two ways you can enable your database:
You can use the PROUTIL ENABLECDC qualifier. The syntax is:
proutil db-name -C enablecdc
area table-areaname indexarea index-areaname
[ deactivateidx ]
See OpenEdge Data Management: Database Administration for details.
*You can use the Database Administration Console of OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer. See OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer: Managing Change Data Capture in Databases or the online help for details.
