MobiLink remote ID name

The remote ID is created as a GUID, but you can change it to a more meaningful name. For both SQL Anywhere and UltraLite databases, the remote ID is stored in the database as a property called ml_remote_id.

For SQL Anywhere clients, see Remote ID settings and ml_remote_id option.

For UltraLite clients, see UltraLite ml_remote_id option.

If you set the remote ID manually and you subsequently recreate the remote database, you must either give the recreated remote database a different name from the old one or use the ml_reset_sync_state stored procedure to reset the state information in the consolidated database for the remote database. See ml_reset_sync_state system procedure.

When deploying a starter database to multiple locations, it is safest to deploy databases that have a null remote ID. If you have synchronized the databases to prepopulate them, you can set the remote ID back to null before deployment. This method ensures that the remote ID is unique because the first time the remote database synchronizes, a unique remote ID is assigned. Alternatively, the remote ID can be set as a remote database setup step, but it must be unique.
