Registering a database-based MDS repository

Upon installing Oracle SOA Suite 11g, the MDS is typically registered with your SOA domain, but there are cases when it may not have been registered or cases where you have to create a new one, as explained earlier. There are multiple ways of registering an MDS repository; one method is to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control. If you prefer, or if you have not installed Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control in your Oracle WebLogic Server domain, you can instead use the WLST command-line utility to perform the registration.

  3. 3. On the Metadata Repositories page, click on the Register button under the Database-Based Repositories...
