CAST Storage Service database server editor


Notes

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

NameDisplays 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
HostDisplays 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.

PortDisplays 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.
PasswordDisplays 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

Server Security tab

Note that in CAST AIP ≥ 8.3.12, the Server Security tab has been removed, as such, it is no longer possible to change the operator and guest user passwords for the associated CAST Storage Service.

This tab enables you to change the default passwords assigned to the "operator" and "guest" accounts on the CAST Storage Service. CAST only recommends doing so if you know what you want to achieve.

Change "guest" passwordSee Change Operator and Guest passwords.

The Notes tab is simply an area that you can use to make notes or remarks about the selected item.
