Configuration Assistant

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.

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

Prerequisites

The configuration assistant resides in the config_assistant sub directory and requires the following files to run:

 

es_config_assistant.exe

Qt5Core.dll

Qt5Gui.dll

Qt5Xml.dll

Qt5Widgets.dll

msvcp140.dll

concrt140.dll

vccorlib140.dll

vcruntime140.dll

Command-Line Parameters

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.
