Create the DPA repository database
After you install DPA and open it for the first time, you must create a repository database. The repository database stores monitoring user credentials and the performance data that DPA collects from monitored database instances.
Create the repository using a wizard (password authentication)
You can use a wizard to create the repository database on any of the following database types:
- Create a SQL Server repository database
- Create an Oracle repository database
- Create a MySQL repository database
- Create an Azure SQL Database repository database
Azure SQL Managed Instance (ASMI) is not supported as a DPA repository database. See the system requirements for more information.
Create a repository that uses CyberArk for authentication
If you plan to configure DPA to use CyberArk, see Create a DPA repository that uses CyberArk for authentication.
Automate repository creation
If you want to automate repository creation (for example, as part of a silent installation), see Automate repository creation.
