Creating a new federated database

Printer-friendly version


To create a Federated Database, you will need to use the oonewfd tool.

As an example, we will use the oonewfd command to create a Federated Database with a boot file called “test.boot" and a system-database file called “test.fdb”. The Federated Database will use a host called “objyhost” as the lock server and this Federated Database will be identified with the id 52 (be sure to give each of your Federated Databases a unique id to allow the lock sever to differentiate between them):

oonewfd test.boot –fdfilepath test.fdb –lockserver objyhost -fdnum 52

The output from the command line should look like this:

C:\>oonewfd test.boot -fdfilepath test.fdb -lockserver objyhost
