Customize the Client Configuration

Use this procedure to set the global customization parameters for a data source before you clone it. The Client Configuration dialog box includes global customization settings that modify the table layout of the relational database. It also includes settings that manage daily operations, such as scheduling, log creation and filenames, and stop conditions.

To set the customization parameters

Note: When you open the Client Configuration dialog box from the Client Configurator (versus from the Client Console), you can customize your data source without restrictions. This is suitable for uncloned data sources. After you clone, we recommend that open the Client Configuration dialog box from the Client Console (Data Source > Client Configuration). This ensures that you can only access options that don't require recloning.

  1. In the Explorer view, right-click a data source and choose Customize Data Source.
  2. In the DMSII view, right-click the data source and choose Client Configuration.
  3. From the left side of the Client Configuration dialog box, click a category or click the plus (+) sign next to a category to show additional parameters for that category.
  4. For a description of these options, click the Help button Help button in the lower-left corner of the Client Configuration dialog box. (If you select a new category of settings, click the Help button again.)
  5. When you're done, click OK.

    Your selections are saved to a binary client configuration file (dbridge.cfg) located in the config subdirectory of the data source's working directory.
