[THIN] Re: IMA Datastore question

Many thanks for your help, as it happens, I found the farm is using direct
connections to the SQL Database, but they are not displayed under ODBC, only
as a DSN in the IMA Directory, with a local cache defined as an Access
Database

If you go out to the citrix's site there you can download an administration
guide. If you browse to the section Metraframe Commands you'll find that
there is a dsmaint command. This command has a flag /migrate that you can
use to migrate from an access database to a SQL database. 

Hope this helps

I'm sure this is a simple question, but I just want to check.

I have inherited a new Xpe farm, which appears to be running an Access
Database based system. I say this as there is no mention of SQL based =
DSN's with the ODBC configuration.

I would like to move toward a direct connected SQL Config. Is the best = way
to do this, to set up an appropriate SQL Database, and then migrate the
servers to use this?

What is the best way forward, and is this an evening/weekend job, or can =
it be done server by server during the day?

Many thanks,

Phil Newman
