The remote ID is created as a GUID, but you can change it to a more meaningful name. For both SQL Anywhere and UltraLite databases, the remote ID is stored in the database as a property called ml_remote_id.
For SQL Anywhere clients, see Setting remote IDs.
For UltraLite clients, see UltraLite ml_remote_id option.
When deploying a starter database to multiple locations, it is safest to deploy databases that have a null remote ID. If you have synchronized the databases to pre-populate them, you can set the remote ID back to null before deployment. This method ensures that the remote ID is unique because the first time the remote database synchronizes, a unique remote ID is assigned. Alternatively, the remote ID can be set as a remote setup step, but it must be unique.
To simplify administrative duties when defining a MobiLink setup where you have one user per remote, you might want to use the same number for all three MobiLink identifiers on each remote database. For example, in a SQL Anywhere remote database you can set them as follows:
-- Set the MobiLink user name: CREATE SYNCHRONIZATION USER "1" ... ; -- Set the partition number for DEFAULT GLOBAL AUTOINCREMENT: SET OPTION PUBLIC.GLOBAL_DATABASE_ID = '1'; -- Set the MobiLink remote ID: SET OPTION PUBLIC.ml_remote_id = '1';
