Lesson 4: Starting the MobiLink server to record

In this lesson, you start the MobiLink server (mlsrv16) using the -c option to connect to your consolidated database.


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

This lesson assumes that you have the roles and privileges listed in the Privileges section at the start of this tutorial: Tutorial: Simulating multiple MobiLink clients using the MobiLink Replay utility.

  • Run the following command to connect to your consolidated database:

    mlsrv16 -c "DSN=cons" -zu+ -zs mlreplay_svr -x tcpip -ot -v+ -rp .

    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

    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.

    Adds new users automatically.


The MobiLink server started and connected to the consolidated database. The MobiLink server messages window appears.
