IBM Quick Deployer modify Install Applications process to use an existing database server updated.png

Authors: ThomasPiccoli, KennethThomson, JenniferLiu, KenTessier, ClareCarty
Build basis: CLM 6.0, CLM 6.0.x, CE 6.0.x

Out of the box the Install Applications process will install a new DB2 database server and configure it for use by the applications.
If you prefer to use your own existing DB2 or Oracle database server you should modify the Install Applications process as described below.

By following these instructions it is assumed that after modification all CLM or CE installations will use your own existing DB2 or Oracle database server.

An existing DB2 or Oracle database server should only be used with one application instance or conflicts could arise that corrupt the data. This means that each deployment will require that you provide a separate DB2 or Oracle database server. Each DB2 or Oracle database server that you provide will also require the installation of a UCD agent so it can be mapped to an environment later as described in the Environment Construction topic.
