Creating the Blueworx Voice Response database

This procedure is used once you have installed Blueworx Voice Response. It creates the Blueworx Voice Response database tables, and loads the base application objects, such as state tables, system prompts and voice directories.


  1. Log on to AIX as root, if you are not logged on already.
  2. Setting up the environment: You are currently logged on as root, but you need to have the environment set as it would be if you were logged on as dtuser. To set the environment, type the following command and press Enter:
    . /usr/lpp/dirTalk/tools/vae.setenv

    Make sure you leave a space between the period and the slash before usr. There is no visible feedback when you have entered this command.

  3. Type the following command and press Enter:
    echo $VAE

    If the environment is properly set up, the system should display the following message:

  4. Creating the database: Check that you have at least 250 MB (256000 1024–byte blocks) of disk space available in the /home file system and at least 120 MB (122880 1024–byte blocks) available in the /tmp file system by using the following commands:
    df -k /home
    df -k /tmp
    If you do not have enough space, increase the size available for these file systems before you proceed.
  5. Type the following command, then press Enter:
    /usr/lpp/dirTalk/tools/DTdatabase -r
  6. The prompt Restore supplied sample database and voice data? (y/n) is displayed.

    Typically you should respond by entering y, at which point the system creates the database, displaying status messages as it does so. This may take a few minutes.
