Before creating a new PDS project, preparations must be made for the various schemas that will be created. New database user names must be created within the single database that all user names share. These new user names must be unique and should be tied in some manner to the schema name. In fact, if the database username is identical to the schema name, administration is greatly simplified.
PD_Shell includes example scripts (in the pdshell\sql directory) that can be modified to create databases/user names for use with PDS projects. These scripts must be examined and modified by the system administrator before use. For assistance, see the Technical Notes and Whitepapers for PDS3D found on Intergraph Smart Support.
