Synchronization Profile Properties window: Basic Dbmlsync

This tab has the following components:

  • Publication   Choose this option to specify the publication to synchronize. Note that the publication can only be specified once in a synchronization profile, but the command line option can be specified multiple times. See -n option.

  • MobiLink user   Choose this option to specify the MobiLink user.

Synchronization type
  • Bi-directional   Choose this option to perform bi-directional synchronizations. See -bc option.

  • Upload only   Choose this option to perform only upload synchronizations. See -uo option.

  • Download only   Choose this option to perform download-only synchronizations. See -ds option.

  • Continue download   Choose this option to restart previously failed downloads. See -bc option.

  • Create download file   Choose this option to create a download file. Specify the name of the download file. You should use the file extension .df for download files.

    You can optionally specify a path. If you do not specify a path, the default location is the dbmlsync current working directory, which is the directory where dbmlsync was started. See -bc option.

    • Download file extra   Optionally, specify -be filename to specify a string that can be validated at the remote database. See -be option.

      Specify -bg filename to create a download file for remote databases that have not yet synchronized. See -bg option.

    • Update generation number   Specify the generation number for the synchronization subscription.

      Generation numbers provide a mechanism for forcing remote databases to upload data before applying any more download files. A separate generation number is automatically maintained for each synchronization subscription on the database. See MobiLink generation numbers.

  • Apply download file   Choose this option to apply the specified download file. See -ba option.

  • Ping   Choose this option to ping the MobiLink server. This option only confirms communications between the UltraLite client and the MobiLink server; it does not synchronize any data. See -pi option.

Transactional upload   Choose whether each transaction on the remote database should be uploaded as a separate transaction within one synchronization. See -tu option.

Download read size   For restartable downloads, specifies the maximum amount of data that may need to be resent after a communication failure. See -drs option.
