-pi option

Pings a MobiLink server.

dbmlsync -pi -c connection_string ...

When you use -pi, dbmlsync connects to the remote database, retrieves information required to connect to the MobiLink server, connects to the server, and authenticates the specified MobiLink user. When the MobiLink server receives a ping, it connects to the consolidated database, authenticates the user, and then sends the authenticating user status and value back to the client. If the MobiLink user name cannot be found in the ml_user system table and the MobiLink server is running with the command line option -zu+, the MobiLink server adds the user to the ml_user MobiLink system table.

To adequately test your connection, you should use the-pi option with all of the synchronization options you want to use to synchronize with dbmlsync. When -pi is included, dbmlsync does not perform a synchronization.

If the ping succeeds, the MobiLink server issues an information message. If the ping does not succeed, it issues an error message.

When you start dbmlsync with -pi, the MobiLink server can execute only the following scripts, if they exist:

  • begin_connection
  • authenticate_user
  • authenticate_user_hashed
  • authenticate_parameters
  • end_connection
