Configure BLOB Store Database

If you have already configured the BLOB Store Database, you can skip this step.
StorageEdge EBS/RBS needs to store metadata about BLOBs like BLOB index, encryption and Storage Profiles. For this purpose you can use the BLOB Store Database Config tool to provide a database. You can use an existing database or create new database and the tool will create the necessary tables in it. This database will be shared between EBS and RBS. If you already configured a database for BLOB Store then you can skip this section. Any change made to a database will be reflected for both EBS and RBS.
To configure the BLOB Store Database, follow these steps:
  • Open the "Configure BLOB Store Database" tool from Start -> All Programs -> StorageEdge -> Admin Tools -> Configure BLOB Store Database.
  • When the tool opens, select the "Server Name" where SQL Server is installed.
  • Enter authentication details.
  • Enter the database name where you want to create tables.
  • Click the "Test Connection" button to make sure that the connection with a database is successfully established.
  • If the connection success message appears, click the "Create Tables" button to complete the BLOB Store Database configuration.
Note: You will need a separate BLOB Store Database on each farm.
