Synchronization Profile Properties window: Basic Dbmlsync

This tab has the following components:

  • Subscriptions   Specifies the subscriptions to include in the synchronization profile for databases created with SQL Anywhere version 12.0.0 or later.

    For databases created with an earlier version of SQL Anywhere, specifies the individual publications and the MobiLink users.

  • Synchronization type  

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

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

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

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

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

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

      • Update generation number   Specifies 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 dbmlsync 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 dbmlsync option.

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

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