GRANT REMOTE DBA statement [MobiLink] [SQL Remote]


Use this statement to grant remote DBA privileges to a user ID.

Syntax

GRANT REMOTE DBA
TO userid, ...
IDENTIFIED BY password

Remarks

This statement grants a limited set of DBA permissions ideal for synchronization users. The remote DBA privilege avoids having to grant full DBA privileges, thereby avoiding security problems associated with distributing DBA user IDs and passwords.

In MobiLink, REMOTE DBA authority is recommended for the SQL Anywhere synchronization client (dbmlsync). See Permissions for dbmlsync.

In SQL Remote, REMOTE DBA authority enables the Message Agent to have full access to the database to make any changes contained in the messages.

For SQL Remote, the REMOTE DBA privilege has the following properties:

Permissions

Must have DBA authority.

Side effects

Automatic commit.
