Quick Start Guide - Register Server
To register a new or duplicate an existing server entry within FB TraceManager 2, click the Register/Duplicate Server button in the toolbar of section 1 in the Main Screen.
Enter the following information:
|•||Display name: This is the string shown in the list of servers.|
|•||Host name: Server name or IP address of the computer hosting the Firebird server.|
|•||Port: TCP port of the Firebird server. Default is 3050.|
|•||User name: Name of the Firebird user you want to use for the Service Manager attachment.|
|•||Password: The user's password. The password will be stored encrypted in the FB TraceManager 2 database to suppress misuse in case someone is connecting to the FB TraceManager 2 database directly, e.g. via third-party tools like isql, Database Workbench, FlameRobin etc.|
|•||Auto connect: Select this option if you want to connect to a particular server upon program start automatically.|
The user name and password are optional to support Firebird trusted authentication on Windows platform.
Upon clicking on Finish, FB TraceManager 2 checks if the provided attachment information points to a Firebird 2.5 (or higher) installation. If this is the case, then FB TraceManager 2 allows you to register the server right away. If you are trying to connect to a server prior Firebird 2.5, then e.g. the following confirmation dialog is shown.
If you click on Yes, then you still can register the server, although you won't be able to connect to the server, as long as you don't replace the provided Firebird server installation with Firebird 2.5 or higher.
What's next: The next QSG section Register Database will show you how to register a database for per-database monitoring.
