The Local Database
A local database is one that resides on the machine where its database server executes (i.e. the system databank file containing the data dictionary exists on a local disk).
A local database definition registers the database by specifying a name (which is not case sensitive) and a home directory for the database.
It also involves specifying various parameters which configure the database server that is started for the database.
Win: The definition of a local database under Windows is created by running the Mimer Administrator and specifying the required parameters, including those that control the database server, which are stored in the Windows registry.
A fully created local database, complete with its Mimer SQL license key, see Mimer SQL License Key, Mimer SQL system databanks, see SDBGEN - Generating the System Databanks, user databanks and the ident and data structure contained in them, see Establishing the Ident and Data Structure, constitutes a Mimer SQL database.
A completely created local database can only be accessed from the machine on which it resides. If the database is to be accessed from a remote node, connected to the local machine via a network connection, a remote database definition for the database must be created on the remote node.
