Directory Access Server Properties window: General tab

A directory access server is a remote server that gives you access to the local file structure of the computer running the database server. You use proxy tables to access any subdirectories on the computer.

This tab has the following components:

  • Type   Shows the type of object.

  • Directory information   Shows information about the root directory.

  • Root directory   Shows the path for the root directory of this directory access server. When you create proxy tables for this directory access server, they are relative to this root directory.

  • Subdirectories   Shows the number of levels of subdirectories that are accessible to this directory access server. This value must be between 0 and 10. If the value is 0, then only the files in the root directory are accessible via the directory access server. You can create proxy tables to any of the directories or subdirectories available via the directory access server.

  • Directory creation   Shows whether directories can be created using the directory access server.

  • Read only   Shows whether the root directory is read only.

  • File name delimiter   Shows what type of file name delimiter has been selected for this directory access server.
