Install CA ERwin Mart Server with a Pluggable Database

The procedure to install CA ERwin Mart Server for a pluggable database is same as the procedure for a normal database. This topic describes only those fields that need different values for a pluggable database. For more information on how to configure the CA ERwin Mart Server, see the Install CA ERwin Mart Server topic.

The following fields on the Configure the CA ERwin Mart Server dialog need different values:

Server Name

Specifies the name of the database server where you have installed the Mart database. Enter the name of the computer where Oracle 12c is installed and the pluggable database erwin_test is created.

Database Name

Specifies the name of the pluggable Mart database. For example, erwin_test.

User Name

Specifies the user name to connect to the Mart database. Enter mmadmin or any other user account that you have created when you ran the script.

Password

Specifies the password to connect to the Mart database. Enter mmadmin or any other password that you have created when you ran the script.

How to Upgrade any r9 Series Mart to the Current Version

If you are using any earlier release of r9 series and you want to upgrade it to the latest release, upgrade the Mart Server and the Mart database. The Mart server program is upgraded, so you must implement the upgraded software.

Important! The current Mart is designed to work with only the current version of CA ERwin Data Modeler. If you try to connect the current Mart with an older version CA ERwin Data Modeler such as r9.0.0, it may corrupt the Mart and cause unexpected behavior.

The following diagram illustrates how System Administrators can upgrade a Mart from any earlier release of r9 series to the latest release:
