Intro#

A new database can be created as follows:

  • Automated with SQL Server

    Administrator rights to the SQL Server instance are needed.

  • Manually with SQL Server

    Administrator rights to the SQL Server instance are needed.

  • Manually with Oracle

    Administrator rights to the Oracle database server are needed.

Default User

During the creation of the database, a user account is created automatically: The user Admin (with the starting password password) is a super user for administrating ADONIS NP.

Detailed Instructions

For detailed instructions on how to create a database with SQL Server 2008/2008 R2/2012/2014/2016/2017/2019 or Oracle 11g/12c/18c/19c, refer to the database manuals on the ADONIS NP installation medium in the folder “01 Installation Manual”.

Quick guide: Automated with SQL Server

  • Start the ADONIS NP-tool Create new database in the windows start menu or execute the file adbinstws.exe in the ADONIS NP installation directory.

  • Select Create new database, fill out the available fields, keep the default settings and click Create.

Quick guide: Manually with SQL Server

  • Create an empty database hull with the SQL Server Management Studio.

  • Establish an ODBC-data source. For details, see the information box below.

  • Initialize the database (see Initialize Database).

note

You must create the ODBC data source by using the 64-bit version of the odbcad32.exe file located in the “%WINDIR%\system32” folder. “%WINDIR%” stands for your Windows installation directory.

The 64-bit version of the odbcad32.exe file is supported from ADONIS NP 9.0. Older versions of ADONIS NP require the 32-bit version of the odbcad32.exe file to connect to the database.

Quick guide: Manually with Oracle

  • Run the Oracle Database Configuration Assistant.

  • Create a net service name.

  • Modify the script aprporcl.sql and run it with SQL Plus.

  • Initialize the database (see Initialize Database).
