I am using OrCad CIS 16.5 and I would like to use my company server to host the CIS database. We are using mySQL. I have set up a database with the properties as described in the help and created a new odbm data source. However, if I want to create a new data source in OrCad CIS preferences it doesn't appear in the options. I was wondering if OrCAD accepts mySQL as data base? Does anyone have a document how to set up the database on mysql and integrate it into OrCad CIS?
Many thanks in advance.
I am struggling to make the CIS communicating with and SQL server running on a Linux OS. I am pretty unexperienced with all of this .NET, Microsoft SQL server etc. but still the instalaltion manual cannot help me :( (I mean Component Information Portal™ (CIP) Installation Guide Version 4.3 ).
First I cannot figure out vey well the architecture (Fig. 1). I see a file server, a web server and a CIP-E/CIS database (SQL)
Since I want to make a number of designers sharing the component DB I am thinking that the CIP-E/CIS database (SQL) is a machine (Linux in my case) running an SQL server (my SQL, I'd like). or may be it is the FIle Server?
@AXelBoro: where is the help file showing / describing how to create teh database?
the whole thing is so confusing and I cannot find too much help in the docs (maybe they are written for experienced system adiministrator which I am not)
plz help: possibly address some guide to do this
