Create databases 

Create databases for the applications that you plan to install. You can use the database wizard or run the SQL scripts that are provided with IBM Connections.

Note: If you are migrating from Lotus Connections version 2.5, do not complete the tasks for creating databases. The migration process manages those tasks automatically.

Each IBM Connections application requires its own database, except Mobile, Moderation, News, and Search. The Mobile and Moderation applications do not have an associated database or content store, while the News and Search applications share the HOMEPAGE database.

The database wizard automates the process of creating databases for the applications that you plan to install. It is a more reliable method for creating databases because it validates the databases as you create them.

Consult your database documentation for detailed information about preparing your databases.

Note: You must have already created and started a database instance before you can create databases.
