The SQLHOSTS File on VMS and Linux


This appendix applies to the OpenVMS and Linux platforms only.

It describes the SQLHOSTS file 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.

Linux: On a Linux node, the path name of SQLHOSTS file is:
/etc/sqlhosts

The program called mimsqlhosts can be used to manage the contents of the SQLHOSTS file instead of editing it manually.
When the dbinstall program is used to install a local database on a Linux node, an entry for it is automatically added to the LOCAL section, see LOCAL Section, of the SQLHOSTS file on that node.
If the file is not found, a default SQLHOSTS file is automatically generated. (See the mimhosts and sqlhosts man-pages).

VMS: On an OpenVMS node, the SQLHOSTS file can have any name and is located by translating the logical name MIMER_SQLHOSTS. The MIMSETUP command will define it to be:
SYS$SPECIFIC:[SYSMGR]SQLHOSTS.DAT

A default SQLHOSTS file is generated by the installation of the Mimer SQL software.
