Number of databases needed for new install of ePO 5.10

For a new install of ePO 5.10.0 (standalone), are two databases needed? Main DB then another one for mcafee_events? 

I think that was a change beyond 5.3 where the events were separated into another DB.

Last new install I did was 5.3 and we setup only one DB, unsure if that's changed for 5.10.

Thanks for any info.

Hi @Isagel ,

McAfee ePO 5.10 also requires 2 Databases.

Main DB and the other for Events.

Hello @Isagel 

Thanks for your response.

I would like to inform you that in ePO 5.10 we introduced two databases one is main database and the other one is for Events.

epo_databae

epo_events_database 

After you upgrade to or install ePO 5.10, a new SQL database is created in addition to the existing ePO database with the format: ePO_<ePOServerName>_Events

Additionally, you don't need to pre-create any databases, as the install will create them.  If your sql server supports partitioning, the events database will be partitioned into separate files for each month of the year.

Ok thank you. So if I create one database, install ePO 5.10, then during the installation the ePO_events db is created ?

You don't create any databases.  The install will create all databases it uses.
