Locating a database server

SQL Anywhere searches for the server name specified in the ServerName (Server) connection parameter. SQL Anywhere searches for a default server if the ServerName (Server) connection parameter is not used, and the CommLinks (LINKS) connection parameter is not specified or if the CommLinks (LINKS) connection parameter is specified and includes Shared Memory.

SQL Anywhere attempting to start a personal server.

If SQL Anywhere locates a server, it tries to locate or load the required database on that server. See Locating the database.

If SQL Anywhere can not locate a server, it may attempt to start a personal server, depending on the connection parameters.
