The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

This document describes how to create an alias for Cisco Customer Voice Portal (CVP) reporting server Data Base (DB) instance name, so different reporting server have different alias names.
Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of these topics:
Unified Customer Voice Portal (CVP)
The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, ensure that you understand the potential impact of any command.
In all CVP Reporting Server Installtion, the the database instance is hardcoded to cvp
Step 1. Create an entry in the %ONCONFIG% file (onconfig.cvp) for DBSERVERALIASES. Something like CVP_1, CVP_2, CVP_3, etc. Rules to follow while creating the Aliases:
a. DBSERVERALIASES must begin with a lowercase letter and can contain other lowercase letters, digits, and underscores. b. DBSERVERALIASES must not include uppercase characters, a field delimiter (space or tab), or a new line character. c. Other characters from the basic ASCII code set are not necessarily reliable. d. For example, a hyphen or minus sign can create problems and a colon might not work reliably. e. The @ character is reserved to separate the database from the server (as in dbase@server).
Step 2. Go to C://Informix/db, edit sqlhost file. Add <instance name> <PROTOCOL> <hostname> <aliased instance name>
Ex: cvp_1 olsoctcp CVPRTPT cvp_1
Step 3. Edit the %WIN_PATH%/system32/etc/drivers/services and add an entry for that alias (copy the tcp entry for IDS)
Step 4. Create a registry entry under Informix/sqlhosts to match that alias name. Make sure the service name should be same as that of the alias name.
Step 5. Go to Services and Restart the Informix IDS service . After successful service restart verify the DB instances are reflecting as created.
