You can choose to specify installation of the MongoDB service database on another machine accessible on the network to the Rapid Recovery Core. If the service database for your Rapid Recovery Core is installed on a machine other than the machine hosting the Rapid Recovery Core, you must provide database credentials (a user name and password) in these settings.
Complete the steps in this procedure to modify the database connection settings for the service database used by the Rapid Recovery Core.
- Navigate to the Rapid Recovery Core Console.
- On the icon bar, click (Settings), and then do one of the following:
- From the list of Core settings on the left side of the Settings page, click Database Connection.
- Scroll down on the right side of the Settings page until you can see the Database Connection heading. The Database Connection core settings appear.
- From the top of the Database Connection settings area, you can do the following:
- Click Test Connection to verify your settings. Testing the connection is recommended when you change any of the database connection settings.
- Click Restore Default to restore all default database connection settings. You are prompted to confirm this action, which results in abandoning any customized database connection settings.
- Click on the setting you want to change. The setting you selected becomes editable.
- Enter the configuration information as described in the following table.
- Host name: Enter a host name for the database connection. NOTE: When localhost is the parameter specified as the host, the MongoDB is installed locally on the machine hosting the Core.
- Port: Enter a port number for the database connection. NOTE: The default setting is 27017.
- User name: Enter the name of a user with administrative privileges to the MongoDB service database. NOTE: If the host name parameter is localhost, this field is not required.
- Password: Enter the password associated with the user name you specified. NOTE: If the host name parameter is localhost, this field is not required.
- Retention period (day): Enter the number of days to retain the event and job history in the service database.
- Maximum connection pool size: Sets the maximum number of database connections cached to allow dynamic reuse. NOTE: The default setting is 100.
- Minimum connection pool size: Sets the minimum number of database connections cached to allow dynamic reuse. NOTE: The default setting is 0.
- For each setting, when satisfied with your changes, click the check mark to save the change and exit edit mode, or click the "x" to exit edit mode without saving.
