Creating DB2 databases

Create databases using DB2®. You can use the database wizard or run the SQL scripts that are provided with HCL Connections™.

Attention: The HCL Connections 7.0 database wizard does not create the XCC or ESSAPPS databases. XCC is the database for Community Highlights / Connections Engagement Center (CEC), and ESSAPPS is the database for Feature Foundation, which provides the basis for Export to PDF and Tailored Experience. The Community Highlights database scripts are located in the folder - /Wizards/connections.sql/icec. The Feature Foundation database scripts are located in the folder - /Wizards/connections.sql/ic360. Refer to the procedure in this section to create the databases. You will need to manually run the SQL scripts that are provided with HCL Connections. See Creating databases for more information.

Before creating your database, you must first register the DB2 product license key and create a dedicated DB2 user. The registered user can then use the database wizard to automate the installation process. If the administrator does not have permission to access the databases for modification, use the SQL commands to manually create a database. Each database you create should be made for the exclusive use of an application. One database per application.
