Controls whether clients must verify the database server name before connecting.
TCP/IP (client side only)
When connecting over TCP using the DoBroadcast=NONE parameter, the client makes a TCP connection, then verifies that the name of the server found is the same as the one it's looking for. Specifying VerifyServerName=NO skips the verification of the server name. This allows SQL Anywhere clients to connect to a SQL Anywhere server if they know only an IP address/port.
The server name must still be specified in the connection string, but it is ignored. The VerifyServerName (VERIFY) protocol option is used only if DoBroadcast=NONE is specified.
If the server is using -sb 0 or BroadcastListener=NO, the client does not need to specify DoBroadcast=NONE to connect to it, although the client must still specify HOST=. The dblocate utility will not find the server.
It is recommended that you only use this parameter in the rare circumstance where it is not possible to give each server a unique server name, and use that unique name to connect. Giving each server a unique server name, and connecting to the server using that name is still the best way to connect.
