Synchronize connectivity information between servers and clients on Windows

On the Windows™ operating system, you must configure connectivity information for HCL OneDB™ Servers by using the sqlhosts file.

The sqlhosts file is installed in %ONEDB_HOME%\etc\sqlhosts.%ONEDB_SERVER%. The sqlhosts file on the Windows operating system uses the same format as the sqlhosts file on UNIX™ operating systems. The sync_registry task automatically converts the connection information between the sqlhosts file format and the Windows registry format.

When maintaining several client machines, you can update their registries by using the syncsqlhosts utility. For example, if a DRDA® connection is added to a server, all client machines can use this utility to update their registries as well.
