Devices and Depots provide the storage mechanism for DataStore®DSX. A Device can contain one or more Depots.
You must set up Depots to store the Indexed documents in DataStore®DSX. If you have no Depots configured you will be unable to save any documents to DataStore®DSX. When you try, you will see the message:
First create a Storage Device and then create a Depot on the Device.
When Creating Devices and Depots, Management Studio Client must be running on the same machine as the DataStore®DSX Server. Attempting to create a device using a Management Studio Client that is running on a different machine will not work. The interface controls for device addition and deletion will not be displayed.
