8.2 Prerequisites for creating this topology
Before you create this topology, you must complete the prerequisite steps,
described in Chapter 5, “Preparing your topology” on page 83, as follows:
1. Install DB2 (or an alternative database).
2. Install IBM HTTP Server (or an alternative HTTP server, or plan to utilize the
WebSphere proxy server).
3. Install IBM Directory Server (or an alternative user registry).
4. Define the appropriate users in your user registry. In our example, we use
bpmadmin/bpmadmin as the administrative user ID and password.
5. Install IBM Business Process Manager V7.5 Advanced.
6. Install IBM Business Monitor V7.5.
7. Create the required database scripts, and then create the required
databases, tables, and schemas:
Common database tables (CMNDB)
Monitor database tables (MONITOR)
Cognos database tables (COGNOSCS)
Process Server database tables (BPMDB)
Performance Data Warehouse database tables (PDWDB)
Business Process Choreographer database tables (BPEDB)
Business process reporting schema (OBSRVDB)
Messaging engine database tables (MEDB)
Business Space schema (BSPACE)

8. Create a deployment manager profile for IBM Business Process Manager,
and then augment the deployment manager for IBM Business Monitor.
9. Create two custom nodes for IBM Business Process Manager, and then
augment them for IBM Business Monitor. Finally, federate each custom
profile to the deployment manager.
After completing the prerequisite steps, it is assumed that the deployment
manager, empty nodes, and database tables exist. This empty cell is ready for
you to create and configure the clusters in it.
This chapter utilizes the values described in Table 8-2. Some of these values
were created during the prerequisite steps.
Table 8-2 Values utilized in this chapter
Note: Only the Common database tables, Monitor database tables, and
Cognos database are required to exist at the time that the deployment
manager is started. The remaining databases and tables will not be
used until the deployment environment is created. However, because
the runtime administrator and the database administrator have already
planned for the database names, schemas, and users, and because the
runtime administrator has already generated the scripts via the
Database Design Tool, then it is likely most expedient to give all of the
generated scripts to the database administrator right away.
