You catalog the target database in
Data Express using the Distributed Loader feature of the Data Builder module. A detailed description of this feature is in the
Using Distributed Loader section of your
Getting Started with Distributed Data Stores documentation. Consider the following:
- When using Distributed Loader, the target database should be accessible via ODBC using the
dxegenloadfile utility either from the machine where the Data Builder module is installed or from the machine where the distributed engine
is installed. The
dxegenloadfile utility is detailed in your
Getting Started with Distributed Data Stores documentation.
- Distributed Loader allows you to specify an ODBC instance and schema, and presents a list of tables from which you select
tables to load into the
Data Express knowledge base.
- After confirming which tables to load, Distributed Loader launches an interactive process that writes the catalog and structure
information for the selected tables to the knowledge base.
