Specifies a comma-separated list of database names and authentication strings for an arbiter server.
All operating systems, network server only.
This option is only specified when starting the arbiter server in a database mirroring system.
The authentication string must match the authentication string specified for the primary and mirror servers.
If the lists of authentication strings and database names each contain only one entry, the server will act as the arbiter for only one database mirroring system; otherwise, each list must contain the same number of entries.
The following command starts an arbiter database server named arbiter.
dbsrv10 -x tcpip -n arbiter -xa AUTH=abc;DBN=demo -xf c:\arbiterstate.txt
