Initialize the database

Before you can connect to your database from a CLC Workbench or Server it must be initialized. The initialization creates the required tables for holding objects, and prepares an index used for searching. Initialization is performed with the CLC Bioinformatics Database Tool (see figure 2.7).

While the program is working the progress-bar will show the status and the transcript will show a log of actions, events and problems. If anything goes wrong, please consult the transcript for more information. If you need assistance, please contact [email protected], and include the contents of transcript.

If the initialization is successful, the status bar will display this message: Database successfully initialized. You can now close the CLC Bioinformatics Database Tool.
