Lesson 7: Starting the MobiLink server

In this lesson, you start the MobiLink server with the Notifier so that push notifications can be sent to devices.


This lesson assumes you have completed all preceding lessons. See Lesson 1: Setting up the consolidated database.

This lesson assumes that you have the roles and privileges listed in the Privileges section at the start of this tutorial: Tutorial: Configuring server-initiated synchronization using gateways.

  • Connect to your consolidated database.

    Run the following command:

    mlsrv16 -notifier -c "dsn=sis_cons" -o serverOut.txt -v+ -dl -zu+ -x tcpip

    The following table describes the mlsrv16 options used in this lesson. The options -o and -v provide debugging and troubleshooting information. Using these logging options is appropriate in a development environment. For performance reasons, -v is typically not used in production.

    Option Description

    Starts all enabled Notifiers for server-initiated synchronization.

    See -notifier mlsrv16 option.


    Specifies a connection string.

    See -c mlsrv16 option.
