Company > Set Server Information

This option appears in Company menu, if you are running BUSY in Client-Server mode. While running BUSY in Client-Server mode, instead of Set Data Directory, Set Server Information option appears.  With the Set Server Information option, you can set server information either manually or can generate a security file from where the server information can be read.  On clicking the Set Server Information option under Company menu, a Server Information window appears.  Given here is a screenshot of Set Server Information window.

How to set server information in busy-21

In the Server Information window, there are two options. The options are:

  • Set Server Information Manually
  • Read Server Information from Security File

Set Server Information Manually

Select this option, if you want to specify server information manually. On selecting this option, a Set Server Information Manually group gets activated. In the group there are various data fields and one option. The data fields and option are:

  • Database
  • Server Name
  • User ID
  • Password
  • Generate Security File

Database

Specify the database name in this data field. (Fixed as MSSQL for the time being).

Server Name

Specify the Server name in this data field as specified at the time of registering a new Server.

User ID

Specify a valid MSSQL server User ID in this data field. Default MSSQL user name is Sa.

Password

Specify password that you have specified for the user name at the time of registering for a new server.

Generate Security File

Select this option if you want to generate a security file. Security file is generated to hide server details from the clients. The benefit of generating security file is that you do not have to give server details to the clients. Instead you just have to give the path of the security file to the clients and they can then be able to work on the server. On selecting this option, a group gets activated. The group is:

Generate Security File for user ‘Name’

In this group two data fields, one button and one option appears. The data field, button and option are:

  • Companies Allowed
  • Security File Name
  • Generate Security File
  • Password Required on Security File

Companies Allowed

Specify the code of the companies to which the user will have access. Companies code must be separated by semicolons (;). For example, you want that user can access only three companies Comp001, Comp002 and Comp003. In such a case, you have to specify Comp001;Comp002;Comp003 in this data field.

Security File Name

Specify the path and the name for the security file. You can also select the path by using the Browse button.

Generate Security File

Click this button to generate the security file.

Password Required on Security File

Select this option if you want to make the file password protected. Benefit of giving password is that only those clients to whom you have disclosed the password will be able to connect to the server.

Read Server Information from Security File

Select this option if you want to read server details from the security file. This option is more useful for the clients. To use this option it is necessary that you have already created a Security file. In this option, you have to specify the name of the security file from which the information is to be read. After providing a valid security file name, you will be able to connect to the server. On selecting this option, a Read Server Information from Security File group gets activated. In the group there is one data field. The data field is:

Security File Name

Specify the path for the required security file or you can select the path by clicking the Browse button. If you select a file on which password has been provided then you have to give the password for the file and only then you can connect to the server.

Above information is Valid for Current Session Only

Select this checkbox if you want that the Server information provided in the Server Information window will be saved only till the BUSY is opened. Once you close the BUSY and again open it then the default Server information will appear. On the other hand, if you do not select this checkbox then the information specified in the Server Information window will get saved and next time when you open BUSY then the saved information will be displayed in the Server Information window.

After entering the necessary details, click the Save button to save the Server information.
