Data Object Properties


Name Type Description

RDS Servers will be named according to the specified naming pattern. By default, view manager appends a unique number to the specified pattern to provide a unique name for each RDS Server. To place this unique number elsewhere in the pattern, use '{n}'. (For example: rds-{n}-sales.) The unique number can also be made a fixed length. (For example: rds-{n:fixed=3}-sales will name RDS Servers from rds-001-sales to rds-999-sales).
RDS Server names are constrained to a maximum size of 15 characters including the unique number. Therefore, care must be taken when choosing a pattern. If the maximum farm size is 9 RDS servers, the pattern must be at most 14 characters. For 99 RDS servers, 13 characters, for 999 RDS servers, 12 characters. For 9999 RDS servers, 11 characters. If using a fixed size token, use a maximum of 14 characters for "n=1", 13 characters for "n=2", 12 characters for "n=3", and 11 characters for "n=4".
If {n} is specified with no size, a size of 2 is automatically used and if no {} is specified, {n=2} is automatically appended to the end of the pattern
  • This property must contain only alphanumerics and dashes. It must contain at least one alpha character. It may also optionally contain a numeric placement token {n} or {n:fixed=#}. If the pattern does not specify the numeric placement token, the maximum length is 14 characters.
