Setup a Cluster (DCD)
Prerequisites: Prior to setting up a database, please make sure you are working within a provisioned VDC that contains at least one virtual machine (VM) from which to access the database. The VM you create is counted against the quota allocated in your contract.
Note: Database Manager is available for contract admins, owners and users with "Access and manage DBaaS" privilege only. You can set the privilege via DCD group privileges.
