Creating a new database for rotation

You can rotate from one active database to another at any time using the Audit Manager console.

To create a new database for rotation:

  1. Open Audit Manager.
  2. Expand the installation node, then expand Audit Stores and a specific audit store name.
  3. Select Databases, right-click, then select Add Audit Store Database to create a new database.

    For details on setting up the database, see Creating the first audit store database.

  4. Select the Set as Active database option so collectors start writing to the newly created database.

You can also use Centrify application programming interfaces (APIs) to write a script that automates the database rotation process. For API details and sample code, see the Centrify SDK documentation.
