If your DTP distribution includes an embedded database server, the database connections page allows you to connect to either the default embedded database or an external database. To connect to an external database, make sure that your database meets the requirements described in Database Requirements.
- Choose Report Center Administration from the settings (gear icon) drop-down menu.
- Choose Database Settings from the Additional Settings drop-down menu.
- If you are switching to the embedded database, enable the External database connection type option and click Check to verify that DTP can connect.
- Click Save. Restart the DTP service (see Stopping DTP Services and Starting DTP Services).
You can create a new database connection or change existing connections.
