Lesson 4: Starting the MobiLink server to record

This lesson assumes you have completed all preceding lessons. See Lesson 1: Setting up your MobiLink consolidated database.

In this lesson, you start the MobiLink server (mlsrv12) using the -c option to connect to your consolidated database.

 Start the MobiLink server for recording
  1. Run the following command to connect to your consolidated database:

    mlsrv12 -c "DSN=cons" -zu+ -zs mlreplay_svr -x tcpip -ot -v+ -rp .

    The MobiLink server messages window appears.

    Below is a description of each MobiLink server option used. The -ot and -v options provide debugging and troubleshooting information. These logging options are appropriate in a development environment. Typically, for performance reasons, -v is not used in production.

    Option Description


    Precedes the connection string.


    Specifies the message log file


    Specifies what information is logged. Using -v+ sets maximum verbose logging.


    Specifies the directory where synchronizations are recorded for playback.


    Sets the protocol used to listen for synchronization requests.


    Sets a MobiLink server name.


    Adds new users automatically.

  2. Proceed to Lesson 5: Setting up your MobiLink client database.
