4 Introduction to the xDB Replication Console : 4.2 Saving Server Login Information

If you choose to save the login information, the server’s network location (IP address and port number), user name, and password are stored in a server login file in a hidden location under the home directory of the operating system account with which you have opened the xDB Replication Console. See Section 3.3 for the location of this file.
The following shows the Register Publication Server dialog box where the option to save login information is presented as a check box. In this example 192.168.2.7 entered in the Host field, 9051 entered in the Port field, enterprisedb entered in the User Name field, and an encrypted form of the password entered in the Password field are saved in the server login file for this publication server if user name and password validation are successful.
The values for User Name and Password that you enter are validated against the user name and password in the xDB Replication Configuration file residing on host 192.168.2.7, in this case. The user name and password must successfully authenticate before registration of the publication server and saving of the publication server’s login information in the server login file occur. See Section 2.3.1.4 for information on the xDB Replication Configuration file.
pubserver_dialog_box
See Section 5.2.1 for more information on the purpose of these fields and the process of registering a publication server.
The following shows the Register Subscription Server dialog box. In this example 192.168.2.7 entered in the Host field, 9052 entered in the Port field, enterprisedb entered in the User Name field, and an encrypted form of the password entered in the Password field are saved in the server login file for this subscription server if user name and password validation are successful.
subserver_dialog_box
See Section 5.3.1 for more information on the purpose of these fields and the process of registering a subscription server.
Note: Each operating system account on a given host has its own server login file. Thus, the servers that are saved and appear in the xDB Replication Console when opened is independently determined for each operating system account.
Note: The publication database and subscription database cannot be deleted, but unauthorized replications could be forced to occur.
