Go Up to Repository Administration

The Repository Server installation includes several folders, described below. Depending on your configuration options, particularly if the -deleteoff option is set on your server, you may want to manually remove older files collecting in your Repo In/Out folders as described here.

It is always safe to delete a .pri file or .pro file. It is also safe to delete any files with old dates since the files are generally processed immediately upon being written to the directory. This applies to .out files and .err files. Files with .in extension should not be deleted and should not be in the folders for more than the time it takes to process them, unless the Repository Services have been stopped.




This folder contains the Repository subfolders, listed below. It also contains the executable files for the three Repository services, along with the Repository Server Licensing application, a copy of the license agreement, and a copy of a compiled help file that contains information about installing and licensing the Repository.


This is a subdirectory of the Repository folder. It is used to store log files that are used by each of the Repository services to store information about events or transactions.


This is a subdirectory of the Repository folder. It stores the request files received from an ER/Studio DA client until they are processed by the server. If you have older files collecting here:

  1. Open the directory in the Windows Explorer.
  2. Sort the files by Date Modified with the oldest files at the top.
  3. Select all files starting from the top and stopping wherever you feel safe. A good idea is to select all files modified before the current day.
  4. Delete these files.


This is a subdirectory of the Repository folder. It stores files being sent from the Repository server to the ER/Studio DA client until they are processed.


This is a subdirectory of the Repository folder. It contains SQL scripts to run reports or to perform maintenance actions. The SQL Agent is used to run these scripts.

When installing the Repository, you can install the server and database on the same machine, or on different machines. Regardless of where you install each component, we recommend that you do a full backup of both components on a regular basis.
