Connect to Mart
If you are using erwin® Data Modeler Workgroup Edition, you connect to the Mart to access models and perform administrative functions.
The way erwin® Data Modeler connects to the Mart has been redesigned now. In the previous versions, erwin® Data Modeler would connect to the Mart (database) server directly. Now, erwin® Data Modeler connects to the Mart through a web server. You can connect multiple instances of erwin DM to the Mart from your computer.
From erwin Data Modeler (DM) and erwin Mart Server (MS) 2019R1 onward, while connecting to erwin MS from erwin DM, version validation has been implemented as follows:
- Connecting from erwin DM 2019R1 to erwin MS lower than 2019R1 is not allowed.
- Connecting from erwin DM lower than 2019R1 to erwin MS 2019R1 is not allowed.
At the time of logging on to Mart, you must provide the details about the web server and the Mart.
Follow these steps:
- Click on the toolbar, or on the ribbon, click Mart > Connect.
The Connect to Mart dialog opens.
- Complete the following fields:
- Server Name
Defines the name of the web server where you have installed the Mart.
Specifies the port number to access the web server.
- Use IIS
Specifies that you want to use the IIS web server to connect to Mart. This check box is enabled only if you have configured IIS. For more information about configuring IIS, see the Implementation Guide (Workgroup Edition).
If you use IIS, open server.xml file available at C:\Program Files\erwin\Mart Server r9\Tomcat64\conf and un-comment <Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" allowedRequestAttributesPattern=".*" redirectPort="8443" secretRequired="false"/>.
- IIS Port
Specify the IIS port number that you want to use. This field is enabled only if you select the Use IIS check box. The default is 80.
- Use SSL
Specifies that you want to connect to the Mart through a secured connection. SSL lets you access the Mart through a secured connection. This check box is enabled only if you have configured SSL on your web server. For more information about configuring SSL, see the Implementation Guide (Workgroup Edition).
If you use IIS with SSL, open server_ssl.xml file, which is available at C:\Program Files\erwin\Mart Server r9\Tomcat64\conf and un-comment Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" allowedRequestAttributesPattern=".*" redirectPort="8443" secretRequired="false"/>.

A local Windows user who does not belong to a domain or who is not part of an Active Directory cannot log in to the Mart as a Windows user.

Contains at least 1 lowercase character

Also, if you enter an incorrect password five consecutive times, your account will be locked for five minutes (300 seconds) by default.
You can change the time for which the account stays locked as follows:
- From Windows Start menu, click All Programs, erwin, Mart Server 12.0 , Configure MartServer.
The erwin Mart Configuration dialog appears.

- Click Connect.
If you have selected Use SSL and the security certificate is installed, you are connected to the Mart.
After you connect to the Mart, if you click Connect to Model Manager again, a dialog opens seeking your permission to disconnect from the Mart.
If your security certificate is not installed, a message, The certificate authority is invalid or incorrect, appears. You must install the security certificate to proceed.

SSL Security Certificate
If your Mart is SSL security-enabled, you must install the security certificate, when you access the Mart for the first time. The System Administrator creates the security certificate while implementing SSL. Install the certificate on every computer that you use to connect to the Mart.
Be sure to install the certificate under the Trusted Root Certification Authorities certificate store.
