The MobiLink arbiter listens on port 4953 by default.
This command is used with the mlsrv16 -ca option, which provides the MobiLink server with the host name of the arbiter.
The MobiLink arbiter server ensures that only a single MobiLink server in a server farm is running as the primary server.
This prevents redundant notifications in a server-initiated synchronization environment.
If the MobiLink server is not able make a connection to the arbiter after the arbiter starts, the MobiLink server tries to
establish the connection every 15 seconds, and displays periodic error messages.
If the arbiter connection is dropped after the MobiLink servers in the server farm elected a primary server, the primary server
shuts down immediately and the secondary servers try to re-establish the arbiter connection every 15 seconds. After a connection
to the arbiter is established, the MobiLink servers re-elect a primary server.
In the above example, parameter1 is the consolidated database connection parameter and parameter2 is the local MobiLink server connection parameter. All the MobiLink servers in the same server farm must contain the same
setting for the -ca option.
