Install the MySQLTM software. Start the MySQL process (if it does not start automatically).
Create the database. To do this:
Copy the create_waveset_tables.mysql script to a temporary location. This script is located in the db_scripts directory in the Identity Manager installation package, and also in the idm\sample directory if Identity Manager is already installed.
Modify the create_waveset_tables.mysql script to change the database user password.
Create the new tables by using one of the following commands:
c:\mysql\bin\mysql -u root < create_waveset_tables.mysql
$MYSQL/bin/mysql -u root < create_waveset_tables.mysql
Download a version of MySQL Connector/J to use with MySQL.
See Notes on Configuring Databases and Downloading Supporting JAR Files for more information.
Later, during the Identity Manager installation process, you will install the MySQL Connector/J driver to the $WSHOME/WEB-INF/lib directory on your application server.
