Registry data

An understanding of the registry data model is important for many administrative procedures.

The registry data model is a simple one, designed to provide the basic information needed to locate and retrieve shared resources. The registry holds several kinds of data:
  • Objects and tags. Most HCL VersionVault applications connect with VOBs and views by using the information in VOB or view objects and tags, which are created automatically as part of VOB and view creation. They can also be created, removed, and modified explicitly when necessary.
  • Other shared data. The registry is also the repository for system configuration information such as recommended VOB and view storage locations and sitewide defaults for various host configuration parameters. These defaults are established by the administrator, usually during the installation, but can be changed as needed.
