Creating and populating the database for DB2 for the master domain manager

Instructions for creating and populating the HCL Workload Automation database for DB2 for the master domain manager

About this task

This picture describes the steps required for installing the master domain manager. You are now at step 3: creating and populating the HCL Workload Automationdatabase

You can perform a typical database procedure, as described in the following scenarios, or you can customize the database parameters, as described in FAQ - Database customizations.

For more information about all parameters and supported values of the configureDb command, see Database configuration - configureDB script.

DB2 requires a specific procedure in which you first create the database and then create and populate the database tables. To simplify the database creation, a customized SQL file named create_database.sql is provided, containing the specifics for creating the HCL Workload Automation database. The database administrator can use this file to create the database. After the database has been created, you can proceed to create and populate the database tables.

You can optionally configure DB2 in SSL mode by specifying the --sslkeyfolder and --sslpassword parameters whe you run the configureDb command.

You can run the configureDb command specifying a typical set of parameters. In this case, default values are used for all remaining parameters.

Default values are stored in the configureDb.properties file, located in image_location/TWS/interp_name.

If you need to modify any of the default values, edit the configureDb.properties file, but do not modify the configureDb.template file located in the same path.

To create and populate the HCL Workload Automation database and tables, perform the following steps:

Procedure

  1. On the workstation where you plan to install the master domain manager, extract the HCL Workload Automation package to a directory of your choice.
  2. Browse to the image_location/TWS/interp_name/Tivoli_MDM_interp_name/TWS/tws_tools path.
  3. Edit the create_database.sql file by replacing the default value for the database name (TWS) with the name you intend to use.
  4. Provide the create_database.sql file to the DB2 administrator to run on the DB2 database.
    The following command creates the HCL Workload Automation database:
    db2 -tvf file_location>/create_database.sql
  5. Instruct the DB2 administrator to create the DB2 user on the server hosting the DB2 database. You will then specify this user with the dbuser parameter when creating and populating the database with the configureDb command on the master domain manager. When you run the configureDb command, this user is automatically granted access to the HCL Workload Automation tables on the database server.
  6. Browse to the path image_location/TWS/interp_name.
  7. Type the following command to create and populate the HCL Workload Automation database tables with typical settings:
    On Windows operating systems
    cscript configureDb.vbs --rdbmstype DB2 --dbhostname DB_hostname  
    --dbport db_port --dbname db_name --dbuser db_user 
    --dbadminuser DB_administrator 
    --dbadminuserpw DB_administrator_password
    On UNIX operating systems
    ./configureDb.sh --rdbmstype DB2 --dbhostname DB_hostname 
    --dbport db_port --dbname db_name --dbuser db_user
    --dbadminuser DB_administrator 
    --dbadminuserpw DB_administrator_password
    where:
    --rdbmstype
    The database vendor.
    --dbhostname db_hostname
    The host name or IP address of database server.
    --dbport db_port
    The port of the database server.
    --dbname db_name
    The name of the HCL Workload Automation database.
    --dbuser db_user
    The database user you must create before running the configureDb command. When you run the configureDb command, this user is automatically granted access to the HCL Workload Automation tables on the database server.
    --dbadminuser db_admin_user
    The database administrator user that creates the HCL Workload Automation schema objects on the database server.
    --dbadminuserpw db_admin_password
    The password of the DB administrator user that creates the HCL Workload Automation schema objects on the database server.
    Note: The following parameters are also required when installing the master components and their values must be the same:
    • --rdbmstype
    • --dbhostname
    • --dbport
    • --dbname
    • --dbuser

Results

You have now successfully created and populated the HCL Workload Automation database.

You can now proceed to Creating and populating the database for DB2 for the Dynamic Workload Console.
