  • ox-database name


    in a fresh installation (on openSUSE 11.1) the name of the new database allways becomes an appendix to the database-name "_6".

    The point is, that we want to replicate (Master-Master) two ox-databases. One of them is still existing. The otherone should have the same name, so it is awkwardly that the appendix will be given.

    Is there a way to stop this behaviour or is it possible to rename the created database after the creation (and how)?

    Btw. the string to register the database is

    registerdatabase -A oxadminmaster -P PW -n open-xchange-db -p otherPW -m true
    The name of the created database is then "open-xchange-db_6" :-(

    As open-xchange creates databases automatically after the configured amount of contexts per database has been exceeded, there is no other way but using a unique postfix like a number to create a new database.

    If you are not planning to create many contexts, you could manually rename it, but please keep in mind that you have to update all occurrences in configdb also.
