Creating a database configuration

OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer provide a predefined default database configuration; however, you can create a new configuration by modifying the default settings.
To create a database configuration:
1. Click Resources from the management console menu. All resources managed by your console appear in the grid frame.
2. Filter or search for the database whose default settings you want to modify to create a new configuration.
3. Click the Edit icon. The Database details page appears.
4. In the Command and control section of the page, click Configuration. The Database Configuration page appears.
5. Click configuration.<databasename>.defaultconfiguration. The Database Configuration page appears and displays the default configuration properties.
6. Click Create.
7. Type a new configuration group name in the field provided, and click Save. The Database Configuration page appears.
8. Click Edit to set the properties of the new database configuration. (Refer to for a description of each property.)
9. When you finish, click Save.
To make this new configuration the default, you must select it as the default on the Database Configuration page.
To assign the new configuration to a database, see Assigning a different default database configuration.
