Hi Shilpi,

If you see the Databases.xml file, you will see something configurable like this :

<Database name="RB_CUST1" isExternal="yes">..</Database>

The underlying concept of this is that, you would however have a Database, on which you have existing data, in your case the OE DB. Besides, In Rolbase, you can have multiple databases/types and you would be able to configure, which Tenant would rely on which database.
External database support is available for MySQL, OpenEdge, DataDirect Cloud, Oracle, SQL Server databases.

For more information, you can refer to below documentation ;
