The SQLHOSTS File on VMS and UNIX
This appendix applies to the OpenVMS and UNIX platforms only.
It describes the
SQLHOSTSfile which is used to list all the databases that are accessible to a Mimer SQL application from the node on which it resides.
For general information on how to make databases accessible, refer to Registering the Database.
UNIX: On a UNIX node, the path name of
SQLHOSTSfile is:/etc/sqlhostsThe program called
mimhostscan be used to manage the contents of the
SQLHOSTSfile instead of editing it manually.When the
dbinstallprogram is used to install a local database on a UNIX node, an entry for it is automatically added to the
LOCALsection, see LOCAL Section, of the
SQLHOSTSfile on that node.If the file is not found, a default
SQLHOSTSfile is automatically generated. (See the mimhosts and sqlhosts man-pages).
