This lesson assumes you have completed all preceding lessons. See Lesson 1: Designing the schemas.
In this lesson, you synchronize the remote client for the first time. This is done with the dbmlsync utility. Dbmlsync connects to the remote database, authenticates itself with the MobiLink server, and performs all the uploads and downloads necessary to synchronize the remote and consolidated databases based on a publication in the remote database.
At a command prompt, run the following command:
dbmlsync -c "SERVER=remote_eng;DBN=remote_db;UID=DBA;PWD=sql" -n sync_oracle_publication -u oracle_remote -mp oracle_pass
dbmlsync is the synchronization application.
SERVER specifies the name of the remote database server.
DBN specifies the name of the remote database.
UID specifies the user name used to connect to the remote database.
PWD specifies the password used to connect to the remote database.
sync_oracle_publication is the publication on the remote device that is used to perform the synchronization. (This publication was created by the Create Synchronization Model Wizard.)
oracle_remote is the user name used to authenticate with the MobiLink server.
oracle_pass is the password used to authenticate with the MobiLink server.
The progress of the synchronization appears in the SQL Anywhere MobiLink Client Messages window. When this command runs successfully, the dbmlsync application populates the remote database with a subset of information from the consolidated database.
If synchronization fails, check the connection information you pass to the dbmlsync application, and the MobiLink user name and password. Failing that, check the publication name you used, and ensure that the consolidated database and MobiLink server are running. You can also examine the contents of the synchronization logs (server and client).
If you are running the dbmlsync application on a different computer from your MobiLink server, you must pass in arguments that specify the location of the MobiLink server.
