Managed versus scripted databases

A database recognized and managed by the AdminServer is called a managed database.
A database not managed by an AdminServer is called a scripted database. Scripted databases are administered outside the AdminServer using parameter files (.pf) and operating system-dependent scripts.
You can elect to migrate a scripted database to a managed database. To migrate a scripted database to a managed database, perform the steps in Migrating a database.
For details about encryption in general, and starting and monitoring encrypted databases, see OpenEdge Data Management: Database Administration.
