Signon Configuration

If you have installed the Databridge Client software for the first time, you must supply the appropriate logon parameters to your relational database. In addition, you may be required to supply a password to sign on to the Databridge Server on the host.

When you create a new data source from the Client Console, the Hostname and Port settings (in the Add Data Source dialog box) provide these logon parameters. If a KEY is specified for the source in the DATA/SERVER/CONTROL, provide one in the Password box. These settings are saved to the binary Client configuration file (dbridge.cfg), which automatically encodes passwords.

If you supply logon parameters via dbutility command-line options, you must type them each time you run dbutility.

Note: Configuration file settings override environment variables. However, command-line options override both configuration file settings and environment variables.
