FAQ and Troubleshooting guide for Nodinite Configuration Database

How large is the configuration database?

The configuration database is typically very small (<100MB). You can safely shrink this database at any time especially if the transaction log has grown large.

What Recovery Model should I have

We recommend that you have the following settings for your Nodinite databases:

  • Configuration Database should be set to use full recovery mode.
  • Log Databases can be set to use simple recovery mode, at least when Nodinite is used together with BizTalk Server

You can read further about this in the following 'Microsoft SQL Server Recovery Models' article

How many configuration databases are there?

There is just one and only one [Configuration Database][] per instance (environment) of Nodinite.

Are there any SQL Jobs?

Nodinite was designed ground-up not to rely on, depend on, or use any SQL Jobs at all. All cleaning and heavy lifting is performed by our own processes for total control. There are no SQL Agent jobs (Yes you can use the free SQL Express with Nodinite!)

What is stored in the Log Database?

How do I update the configuration database?

Can I move the configuration Database to another SQL Instance?
