|Entering database details without the administration utility|
|Wed, Apr 15 2009 2:48 AM||Permanent Link|
Normally when setting up databases and users you use the database server administration
utility to add/edit these details. Is there a way to have these details entered through an
Basically I have an installation wizard for client computers that can install/setup all
the software except for the database details for db server, is there a registry key or
file that this is contained within that i could customised and push through the
installation wizard process?
Hope that makes some sort of sense, thanks in advance...

Yes, there is a way. Just connect to the server using Administration port
(12006) and use the session available methods to handle what you desire. For

That information is stored in a binary file called (by default) "dbsrvr.scf".

Yes, absolutely. You'll need to do the modifications in code, but you can
find a reference to the configuration calls here:
You can configure the server remotely via a TDBISAMSession, or locally from
within the server itself using the TDBISAMEngine component. The advantage
of putting the configuration code in the dbsrvr.dpr project that we provide
(in the FormCreate for the main form or somewhere similar) is that the
server then becomes self-configuring and only needs to be copied into the
desired location and then started up.
