- should be installed on it's own server. db should be in its own instance in case it needs to be tuned separately from any other schema.
- not right now
- we are still working on profiling to come out w/ some numbers since there can be a difference between heavy and light users
- stores portal-specific objects like operations, sites, etc. things that are portal-native.
Thanks Bill. When you say the database should be in it's own instance, how does the installer build the database? In it's own instance or within the existing BladeLogic instance?
You provide parameters of what db to connect to. the dba needs to create the instance.
