  1. First, configure Storage Server to connect to your metadata repository. This can be done in <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/etc/rss-config.xml file. The metadata repository stores all metadata related to each database accessed through this server instance, such as the users of a given database, time of creation, privilege templates of the users etc. 

    For example, the following sample configuration uses a MySQL database by the name rssdb as the metadata repository.

    Code Block
    languagehtml/xml
    <!-- RSS database used to store database servers, database instance information, users etc.. -->
    <rss-mgt-repository>
        <datasource-config>
           <dataSourceClassName>com.mysql.jdbc.jdbc2.optional.MysqlXADataSource</dataSourceClassName>
           <dataSourceProps>
              <property name="url">jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/rssdb</property>
              <property name="user">root</property>
              <property name="password">root</property>
           </dataSourceProps>
        </datasource-config>
    </rss-mgt-repository>
    Info

    The database user should have super admin privileges.


  2. The metadata repository should have a set of tables for metadata storage. Create these tables in the database mentioned in step 1 (rssdb in this example) by executing the script <PRODUCT_HOME>/dbscripts/mysql/wso2_rss_mysql.sql on the database.

  3. Log in to the Storage Server management console and select Database Server Instances in the Configure menu.

  4. Click the Add Server Instance link, fill in the details and click Save to complete. For example,
