One property of a database is its logical name, that is, the name of the database connection for the database or SAP liveCache.
The name of the database connection is normally created when installing the database or SAP liveCache. For the SAP MaxDB OLTP database, which is the basis of the current SAP Web AS system, the name of the database connection must match the name of the SAP system.
You can assign a new name to a database connection (to create a test database, for example). To do this, use the integration of systems ( DBA Cockpit, ( Integrate Database System) or Datenbank/liveCache Assistant, Create Connection).
SAP liveCache Technology: Predefining the Name of the Database Connection
You can predefine the name of the database connection with a default value for the initial screen of the liveCache Assistant. To do this, proceed as follows:
Start the liveCache Assistant (transaction code LC10).
Enter the following information:
Parameter ID DBCON_NAME
Parameter Value <name of database connection>
Save your user data.
This name appears when you start the liveCache Assistant for the first time. If you call the liveCache Assistant again in a database session, the name of the last used database connection is always displayed.
