Verify databases

After you configure WebSphere Portal to work with your database, test the database connection to ensure that it operates correctly. Then verify that all database transactions work properly within the WebSphere Portal environment.

For example, all portal pages should display without HTTP 404 errors, and there should be no database layer-related exceptions in the SystemOut.log and SystemErr.log files.
