Creating a Server Configuration for an Oracle Schema User

The first time you start a new server configuration, Atlas Hub creates all tables in the database you specify. This section explains how to create an Atlas Hub configuration and start it for the first time.

Before you begin, you need to know:

  • The Oracle Database Server name and either the Oracle Service name or SID.
  • The system password.
  • The logon name and password for the schema user.
  1. Start the Server Administration tool. Click Start > Programs > Micro Focus > Hub > Server Administration. The Server Administration tool opens.
  2. Click Server > New Configuration. The New Configuration dialog box opens.
  3. Enter the new configuration data:
    1. Type the name of the configuration in the Configuration Name field.
    2. Type or click Browse to specify the Repository Path location to be used to store log files and other information. If the repository path that you enter does not exist, the application creates it for you. The Repository Path is also the location for the default hive.
    3. Select Oracle from the Database Type list.
    4. Uncheck the option to Create new StarTeam database, so that Atlas Hub will not automatically create the database for it.
    5. Create an initial hive for the Native-II vault by doing one of the following:
      Accept the default settings

      Leave the Default option selected and proceed to the next step. With the default settings, Atlas Hub:

      • Creates an initial hive named DefaultHive.
      • Creates subfolders on the repository path named Archives and Cache to be used by the DefaultHive.
      • Stipulates that the maximum cache size is 20% of the space currently available on the drive on which the cache is located.
      • Uses the default setting of 600 seconds (10 minutes) between cache cleanups.
      • Uses the default setting of 95% for the storage threshold, the point at which this drive is considered full.
      Specify custom values
      Select the Custom option and change any of the hive settings.
    6. Click Next, and enter the Database Server name, Database name, Database login name, and password in the appropriate text boxes.
    7. Optionally, if you are using a port other than the default, check Edit Database Port and type the port number in the text field.
    8. Type the login name and password for the schema user in the appropriate field.
    9. Select either Service Name or SID and provide the information in the appropriate field.
    10. Click Verify Connection to test the connection. If the connection fails, review and change your settings.
    11. Click Finish.

      This action re-displays the Server Administration tool, which shows your new server configuration as a child of the Local node.

    Note: In addition to creating the server configuration, Atlas Hub adds information about the new server configuration to your starteam-server-configs.xml file. For more information about this file, see the Server Administration Tool Help.
