Reinstall Trident with same database

Sep 28, 2010 at 4:00 AM


I would like to know if it is possible to retain the same database even after Trident is reinstalled.

I reinstall Trident each time I change the source code. However, I would like to retain the workflows created so far in the database. I believe I can save these workflows as .xoml files, but is it possible to retain them in the database as well?

Please let me know if there is a way to do so.

Yes. It is possible to point to the existing database while installing Trident. 

Please find the following steps for installing Trident with existing database:

  1. Run the Trident installer in Customize mode.
    On how to run Trident installer in Customize mode please refer the section “Install the Stand-Alone Version of Trident” part b in “Trident installation guide
  2. In “Custom Setup” Page. Unselect the “Trident Registry” feature.
  3. Clicking next will take you to another screen where you can enter the details of the existing database.
  4. Then follow the installer for installing Trident with an existing registry.

Please let us know if this answers all your questions.

Hi Vinay,

I was able to install Trident over existing database with the instructions you provided.

Thanks for answering my question.
