Manually Creating the Log Database : Running the database creation utility
Running the database creation utility
Creating the Log Database | Web Protection Solutions | 30-Nov-2018
A database creation utility (createdbu) is installed with the Log Server service. You can use this command-line utility to create or upgrade the Log Database manually.
To use the database creation utility, you must provide a database name and the IP address of the Microsoft SQL Server machine.
*
*
If the database name is found, the existing database is upgraded.
*
To run the database creation utility:
1.
2.
Navigate to the SQL directory (C:\Program Files\Websense\Web Security\SQL, by default).
3.
createdbu -ip <IP_address> -name <db_name> -user <user_name> -pass <password>
For example:
createdbu -ip 10.123.123.123 -name wslogdb70 -user sa -pass testpassword
This prompts the utility to create or upgrade the database "wslogdb70" on the SQL Server machine at 10.123.123.123. The SQL Server "sa" account is used, and the password is "testpassword."

Enter database connection information on the Settings > Reporting > Log Server page in the Web Security module of the Forcepoint Security Manager, then click OK and Save and Deploy.
Log Server creates the ODBC connection and provides connection information for the other reporting components.
6.
If Log Server stopped because of database problems, use the Component List tab of the Status > Deployment page to start Log Server.
Once product installation is complete and policy enforcement has started, data should begin to appear in your reporting tools. Use Real-Time Monitor, dashboard charts, investigative reports, or presentation reports to verify that reporting data is being recorded. If no data or incomplete data appears in reporting tools, see Incorrect or missing data in reports.
