          Step 4   Complete fields on this page as follows:




          Enter the name of this data source.

          Report Designers and Report Definition Designers do not have access to the Data Sources page but can see the list of Data Sources when they create custom reports. To benefit those users, give a new Data Source a meaningful name.


          Enter a description for this data source.


          Choose Informix.


          Type is disabled in Edit mode.

          Database Host

          Enter the IP address or Domain Name System (DNS) name for the server.


          Enter the port number. Typically, the port is 1526.

          You may have to open this port in the CVP Reporting Server firewall (Window Firewall > Inbound rules > new rule).

          Database name

          Use the database name callback for stock callback reports.


          Specify the instance name of the desired database. By default, this is cvp.


          Choose the correct time zone for the data stored in the database. In locations that change from Standard Time to Daylight Savings Time, this time zone is updated automatically.

          Database User ID

          Enter the user ID of the Reporting User who is configured in the Operations Console to access the Unified CVP reporting database.

          Password and Confirm Password

          Enter and confirm the password for the database user.


          Choose UTF-8.

          Default Permissions

          View or edit the permissions for this datasource for My Group and for the All Users group.

          Step 5   Click Test Connection.

          If the status is not Online, review the error message to determine the cause and edit the data source accordingly.

          Step 6   Click Save to close the Add Data Source window.
