The configuration assistant usually launches after the initial setup and after major version upgrades where it updates the database schema and configures new components. The configuration assistant is also used to initialize any new databases.
•Configure a new SMTP action if no SMTP action is current setup
•Update all databases which are referenced through an action to the latest schema
•Setup a new database, including action, if no database actions are currently configured
•Setup and configure an individual database if launched from a database action dialog in the management console
•Install & configure the heartbeat agent
•Install & configure the network services
•Install & configure the ADMonitor component
The configuration assistant is automatically launched after every installation / upgrade.
The configuration assistant resides in the config_assistant sub directory and requires the following files to run:
The utility supports a single command line parameter, "/initdb", which needs to be followed by the name of a database action. For example:
es_config_assistant.exe /initdb "Primary Database"
This will either initialize the database pointed to by the "Primary Database" action, or update the existing database to the latest schema.
