database-policy global config

Creates a database-policy and enters its configuration mode. After creating the database-policy, use it on the database host. This enables the database. If deploying a database replica-set, use this command to define the replica set configurations.

To enforce database authentication, enable authentication on the database-policy, and configure the username and password required to access the database. Note, this command is part of a set of configurations that are required to enable authentication. For more information on the entire set of configurations, see Example: Enabling Database Authentication.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Service Platforms — NX9500, NX9600, VX9000


database-policy <DATABASE-POLICY-NAME>


database-policy <DATABASE-POLICY-NAME>
database-policy <DATABASE-POLICY-NAME> Specify the database policy name. If the policy with the specified name does not exist, it is created.
