You can rotate from one active database to another at any time using the Audit Manager console.
- Open Audit Manager.
- Expand the installation node, then expand Audit Stores and a specific audit store name.
- Select Databases, right-click, then select Add Audit Store Database to create a new database.
- Select the Set as Active database option so collectors start writing to the newly created database.
It is possible to write a script to automate the database rotation process. For details, see the SDK documentation.
