Manual database configuration

If you chose Manually create the repository database while installing the Management Server for use with an external database, there are two ways in which you can configure the database before starting the Management Server. Choose the one that best suits your needs:

Option 1 - Run the Foglight database tool to configure the database

Run Foglight’s database tool from the command line after exiting the installer. The database tool is located in the <foglight_home>/client/ directory.

NOTE: The tool creates the -Ddb.schema.username user when you run the command.

Option 2 - Run SQL scripts to configure the database

If you clicked Create during the database installation step, the SQL scripts in the<foglight_home>/scripts/sql directory are prepared with the provided configuration options. There are four SQL files for each database type ([dbtype]):

You can review these scripts before running them.

You must run the configured scripts against the database using a third-party tool.

Run the .sql scripts by issuing the following commands in the order shown:

Example (for Foglight only):

After you have run all four scripts, you can start the Management Server. Proceed to Starting and stopping the Management Server.
