D toc


D s platform
 uses multiple SQL databases to manage platform metadata. This section describes how to install and initialize these databases.

DB Installation Pre-requisites

  • You must install a supported database distribution. For more information on the supported database versions, see System Requirements.
    • You must also acquire the database dependencies associated with the operating system distribution where the database is to be installed. Please see the database vendor for more information.
  • Please verify that the ports used by the database are opened on the 
    D s node
    • For more information on default ports, see System Ports.
    • If you need to use different ports, additional configuration is required. More instructions are provided later. 
  • Installation and configuration of the database cannot be completed until the 
    D s item
     has been installed. You should install the software on the 
    D s node

Other pre-requisites specific to the database distribution may be listed in the appropriate section below.  


If you are concerned about durability and disaster recovery of your 

D s item
, your enterprise backup procedures should include the 
D s item
. See Backup and Recovery.
