How to Build a Cluster Database and Create Repository

Before you start using the Centerprise server, a repository must be set up. Centerprise supports SQL Server and PostgreSQL for building cluster databases, which can then be used for maintaining the repository. The repository is where job logs, job queues, and schedules are kept.

To see these options, go to Server > Configure > Step 1: Build repository database and configure server.

The first step is to point to the SQL Server or PostgreSQL instance where you want to build the repository and provide the credentials to establish the connection.

Note: Centerprise will not create the database itself, just the tables. A database will have to be created beforehand or an existing database can be used. We recommend Centerprise to have its own database for this purpose.
