Configuring a Common Repository

You must configure Spectrum to use a common repository database for the cluster. This ensures that named resources, geographic metadata and configuration settings are managed across the cluster.

The repository is installed with a set of named resources, geographic metadata and configuration files. To migrate these resources to the common database repository the resources need to be exported from the default internal repository database and reimported into the new shared repository database.

For the initial import into the new common repository, use WebDAV to do the population of the shared repository. Once the initial import has been made, for bulk export/import of repository content, you can use the limrepo import and limrepo export commands in the Administration Utility, which give you the option of preserving permissions (see the Administration section of the Spectrum Spatial Guide for instructions.)

Follow the steps outlined for your common repository database, either PostgreSQL, Oracle, or Microsoft SQL Server.
