Setting Up the ENOVIA Server: Final Common Steps

This task explains how to finish setting up the ENOVIA V5 VPM server, and is mandatory whether you are using IBM DB2 Universal Database or Oracle.
Once you have finished the specific setup steps for the database you are using, the Database Administrator dialog box appears (our example illustrates the IBM DB2 Universal Database):

In the case of Oracle, use the Database Administrator user name and password created when installing Oracle on the workstation. This is often, for example:


This dialog box lets you specify the user name and password that will be associated to the Database Administrator.

The Database Administrator User (DBA User):

  • has the privileges to administrate the Database
  • creates tablespaces (spaces for the data structures that will contain the data)
  • is not necessarily a UNIX User.
1. Enter the user name of the database administrator.

2. Enter the password for the database administrator.

Note: The Administrator's User Name and Password must already exist as a UNIX User Name and Password. Both of these entries are case sensitive.

3. Click the Next button to move to the next step.

The Tablespaces - Typical dialog box appears.

The dialog box looks like this on DB2:

and like this on Oracle:

4. On DB2, select the appropriate tablespace from the list.

All tables and indexes are created in one tablespace. A second tablespace is used for BLOB data.

Note, however, that the New One... option for creating new tablespaces does not appear if you are performing a Complete installation.

We recommend that you create new tablespaces: one for the storage of tables and indexes and one for the storage of BLOBs.

Select the tablespace you wish to use for storing tables and indexes from the selection list.

Select the tablespace you wish to use for storing BLOBs from the second selection list.

Note: The tablespaces must be local to the machine on which you are installing ENOVIA V5 VPM in order to have the option to create new tablespaces.

Click the Next button to move to the next step.

If you are creating a new tablespace, the Tablespaces - Typical dialog box appears.

Use the default tablespace name ENOTBS, and enter the correct Tablespaces directory.

The dialog box then looks like this on Oracle:

  5. Click the Next button to continue.

The DDL Customization Step dialog box appears, informing you that the software is compiling the DDL files. This step takes several minutes.


  5. Click the Next button to continue.

A summary is displayed of the different installation options you have chosen.

It looks like this for DB2:

and like this for Oracle:


6. Click the Finish button to execute the installation using the database installation options listed in the summary.
7. On Oracle only, a dialog box appears:

At this point, Oracle needs to create an Oracle user authorized to create the necessary tables in the database. the setup procedure proposes the creation of the same user name as the one you used at the start of the database setup procedure to create the ENOVIA V5 VPM Administrator. In our example, the name was SES

Click the Yes button to continue setting up the database.

Clicking the No button at this point aborts the database setup.

The Report dialog box appears, indicating the actions that are being implemented as the installation progresses. The operations performed at this stage are determined by the options you checked in the Installation Execution dialog box. Installation progress is displayed using a progress bar:

When the database setup has completed successfully, a message appears welcoming you to the world of ENOVIA V5 VPM:


8. Click the Finish button to finish the database setup phase of the installation, then refer to Finishing the Installation to terminate the installation.
