Establishing a connection to an unmanaged local or remote database connection
An unmanaged database connection refers to a database that is not being managed by OpenEdge Management/OpenEdge Explorer and that you are using only to perform database administration tasks related to multi-tenancy.
You can start an unmanaged database connection (located on the local host or a remote host) by using the command line. You can then use the multi-tenancy configuration tool to work with that database once you define a connection to it.
1. On the machine where the scripted database resides (either the local host or a remote host), start Proenv (Start > Programs (or All Programs) > Progress > OpenEdge > Proenv.
2. Type the following command to start the database:
proserve { db-name | -servergroup [ server-group-name ] [ parameters ] }
3. From the management console menu on the machine where OpenEdge Management/OpenEdge Explorer is installed, choose Database Administration > New > Database Connection.
The Edit Database Connection page appears.
4. Provide the following information:
*Connection name — Enter the name of the database connection. This is a mandatory field.
*Category — Enter the category of the database connection. You can enter a category name, such as tenant, tp, or oem, to distinguish between the connections.
*Database name — Enter the full path to the database. This is a mandatory field.
*Host — Enter the host (local or remote) location of the database connection.
*Service name or port — Enter the host name port.
*AdminServer — Select an AdminServer from the list. This is a mandatory field.
*Select the Make database connection visible only to me option to control the visibility of the connection. As an administrator, you can use this option to control which connections you want to share with other administrators or operators.
5. Click Save.
For a local or remote unmanaged database connection in the database connections list, you can also:
*View details about an unmanaged database connection on the database home page. For more information, see Managing multi-tenant databases.
*Copy an unmanaged database connection.
*Delete an unmanaged database connection.
