Configure your database

SecureTransport uses a database to store configuration parameters and data, including log data. With Standard Clustering, SecureTransport Server uses an embedded MySQL database server. With the Enterprise Clustering (EC) option, SecureTransport Server uses a shared external Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle database. With the external Oracle database, you can direct log data to separate databases. SecureTransport Edge always uses an embedded database server.

During installation, you specified the database to use and its parameters. Use the Database Setting page to change database parameters, to switch from the embedded database to an external Oracle database, or to direct log data to separate Oracle databases.

The following topics provide how-to instructions managing databases, changing from internal database to external database, and changing external databases.
