|Issue||Oracle database requirements as a datastore for RSA ClearTrust|
The RSA ClearTrust Installation and Configuration guide states "Before running the script to install the RSA ClearTrust data schema on Oracle, you must create a database instance with appropriate users and table spaces." The language is vague about whether or not an existing instance, when retrofitted with the appropriate ClearTrust schema, can be used.
|Resolution||Installing a new Oracle instance is not a requirement for ClearTrust to function correctly. The SQL schema scripts can be modified and existing Oracle users can be identified in place of the assumed CT_OWNER, CT_ADMIN, and CT_USER users.|
However, RSA recommends the creation of a new database instance. The default ClearTrust schema scripts provide for efficient installation and a better foundation for future upgrades.
