In the remote database, the publish and subscribe user IDs are inverted compared to the consolidated database. The subscriber (remote user) in the consolidated database becomes the publisher in the remote database. The publisher of the consolidated database becomes a subscriber to publications from the remote database, and is granted CONSOLIDATE permissions.
At each remote database, the consolidated database must be granted CONSOLIDATE permissions. When you produce a remote database by running the database extraction utility, the GRANT CONSOLIDATE statement is executed automatically at the remote database.
The following SQL Anywhere statement grants CONSOLIDATE permissions to the hq_user user ID, using the VIM email system:
GRANT CONSOLIDATE TO hq_user TYPE vim ADDRESS 'hq_address'
There is no SEND clause in this statement, so the default is used and messages will be sent to the consolidated database every time the Message Agent is run.
