"The Administer Database function is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the Data Management database, which contains both Descriptive Information and system information. Descriptive Information identifies and describes the archive holdings, and system information is used to support archive operations. The Administer Database function is responsible for creating any schema or table definitions required to support Data Management functions; for providing the capability to create, maintain and access customized user views of the contents of this storage; and for providing internal validation (e.g., referential integrity) of the contents of the database. The Administer Database function is carried out in accordance with policies received from Administration."
Not sure how to define succesful outcome, as the function does not have a definable output. The function is 'successful' if the database continues to be administerd according to OAIS Administrator's policies, and if the database's integrity is maintained.
