UltraLite ml_remote_id option

A unique identifier in UltraLite that is used for MobiLink synchronization.

How to set it

UltraLite employs different methods for setting this property:

ContextImplemented by

From the command line    Use the ulinfo utility.

Use the following utility option:

-r ID

From Sybase Central    Use the Database Options dialog.

Select the ml_remote_ID option and type a new string in the Value field below the options table.

With SQL    Use the SET OPTION statement.

Use the following statement syntax:

SET OPTION ml_remote_id=ID

From a client application    Use the set database option method.

The method of setting this identification value varies according to the programming interface you are using.

Allowed values

Any value that uniquely identifies the database for MobiLink synchronization.


Null (no remote ID)


Each remote database must be represented by a single user ID in the consolidated database. This user ID must be granted REMOTE permissions to identify their user ID and address as a subscriber to publications.

If ml_remote_id is NULL, the MobiLink server automatically assigns a unique value on the first synchronization.
