      1. Add the install_directory/bin directory to your PATH environment variable. If it is already configured then you can skip this step.

      2. Open Unix bash shell.

  2. Create a configuration file for the target connection.

  3. Launch the configuration database import utility, cdbimporter from the command-line using the required options.

  4. Follow the command prompts until succesfully completed.

  5. Launch Eclipse.

    1. Select Preferences from Windows menu.

    2. Expand the DS-5 configuration group.

    3. Select Target Database.

    4. Click Add... to locate the new target database.

    5. Select the entire directory.

    6. Click OK to close the dialog box.
