You can change a UDDI Services Notification server's database in a distributed installation. If you change a Notification server's database connection to a database server that is in a different site, you change the site to which that Notification server belongs. You cannot change the database connection on a Notification server that is part of a stand-alone site.


The UDDI Services Database must be installed on a computer before a UDDI Services Notification server can be connected to it.

Membership in Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at
