Configuring OpenEdge Databases : Viewing the various database configuration properties

Viewing the various database configuration properties

OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer provide a predefined default database configuration. Once you add a database instance, you can use the property settings established in the default configuration, you can modify the default settings, or you can create and modify additional configurations.
Note that only one database default configuration can be selected for a database at a time.
To view the database default configuration properties:
1. Click Resources from the OpenEdge Management console menu. The Resources page appears with all the resources managed by your console, in a grid list.
2. From the resources list, select a database whose default configuration properties you want to view.
Note: You can also search for a specific database by entering the database name in the Search field or selecting Database from the resources type drop-down.
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, displaying the default configuration properties in the following categories: General, Background Writers, After Image Management, International, Advanced, Statistics Collection Configuration, SQL-92 Configuration, SSL Configuration, and Agent. These properties are described in Database configuration properties.
From the Database Configuration page, you can do the following:
*View a read-only display of the database default configuration properties as described in the tables that follow this procedure.
