Creating an Archive Database

Create an archive database using the SAP Control Center Administration Console.


Consider these database attributes:

  1. In the left pane of the Administration Console, expand ASE Servers > Schema Objects > Databases.
  2. Click Archive Databases.
  3. Click the drop-down arrow and select New.
  4. On the Introduction screen, select the server in which to create a database.
  5. On the Database screen, enter the name of the database you want to create.
    To enter the name of an archive database, you must first select a scratch database. You can mark a database as a scratch database by selecting the Scratch Database option from the database property sheet.
    For information on scratch databases, see the System Administration Guide: Volume 2.
  6. (Optional) On the Devices screen, enter the size of the new database. If you do not enter a size, the default size allocated is 3MB. You can specify separately the amount of space to allocate to the log and data segments.
  7. (Optional) On the Options screen, if you created a database encryption key, you can select Encrypt this database, then specify the name of the database encryption key.
  8. (Optional) Click Summary to view your selected options.
