CAST Storage Service database server editor


Notes

  • Note that MS SQL Server database servers support Analysis / Dashboard / Measurement Services for use with the CAST Management Studio.

  • During the process of connecting to the Management Service when launching the CAST Management Studio, the "server" listed in the Connection Profile automatically created by CAST Server Manager for the Management Service, will be added by default to the Services view. The same login credentials will be used. Please see CAST Management Studio - Rights for more information about how server access rights and permissions are handled in the CAST Management Studio.

The CAST Storage Service server editor contains various tabs and sections. Each is explained below.

Name Displays the name of your database server:
  • In the case of newly created database servers, this will be displayed as My <database_type> Server and all other fields will be empty
  • Database servers that have been automatically defined during the installation process using CAST Server Manager - see the CAST Installation Guide for more information - will be displayed with an auto-generated name (that can be modified).

You can edit the field by selecting it and then modifying or replacing as appropriate. Please see Naming constraints for more information.

Note that this name does not need to correspond to the host name of your server. However, for ease of recognition, CAST recommends using a naming convention which can be easily understood.

Connection tab
Host Displays the host name of your database server. You can also enter an IP address if required.

You can edit the field by selecting it and then modifying or replacing as appropriate.

Port Displays the port number for accessing your database. You can edit the field by selecting it and then modifying or replacing as appropriate.

Default RDBMS port settings are as follows:

  • CAST Storage Service 2 > 2280

Notes

  • The port number may have been manually altered during the CAST Storage Service installation.
Password Displays the password (in encrypted format) that corresponds to your Operator login. You can edit the field by selecting it and then modifying or replacing as appropriate.

Notes

  • Please see CAST Management Studio - Rights for more information about how server access rights and permissions are handled in the CAST Management Studio.
