Population of the Distributed Database
You can populate the distributed database with tables in three ways:
By registering tables that exist in local databases. Register the names of existing tables in your distributed database using the register as link statement.
By creating new tables at the Ingres Star level, which automatically registers them in your distributed database. When you are connected to the Star Server and create a new table with the create table statement, you create a table locally and register its name in your distributed database.
By creating new tables in local databases at the local level and then registering these new tables in your distributed database.
For discussions of the register and create commands, see the chapter “Maintaining a Distributed Database with StarView.”
