Registering a NexusDB Server

Previous  Index  Next  How To Use

In order to register a NexusDB server, you need to fill out the dialog below, reached via the Enterprise Manager and the Register Server button.

 

Register a NexusDB Server

 

Database Workbench can connect to NexusDB via three protocols:

TCP/IP

Named Pipes

Shared Memory

 

Optionally, Database Workbench can use a secure network transport if you provide the secure key.

 

If you have your NexusDB server running at another port than the default, modify the Port value in the dialog. You can use the Get Servers flashlight button to discover running servers on your network if they have "respond to broadcast" turned ON, if not, enter the instance name and server hostname yourself.

 

Detect Servers button

 

Database Workbench needs the following information for a connection:

Alias

An user-defined alias name for the server - this is only used inside Database Workbench.

Server

NexusDB server name: instance name followed by '@' and a hostname or IP address (eg: NexusDBv3@testserver )

Port

Port that your NexusDB server is using to "listen" for incoming requests.

Username

The default username for databases.

Password

The password for the username given.

 

After a connection is established, you can filter the databases you want visible in the Enterprise Manager.

 

Note:

If your databases need a different username/password or need more than one username/password combination, then check the Options dialog.
