Minimize SQLBASE on restart

Minimize SQLBASE on restart

Minimize SQLBASE on restart

I use veritas backup exec with the command to stop centura sqlbase before the backup and restart after the backup, when it restarts, the window is displayed on the desktop, how can I have it restart the service and be minimized? Thank you

RE: Minimize SQLBASE on restart

If you use sqlbase 8.x you can find in the server sql.ini file a section [dbnt1sv.gui]
in the entry

you can set with
MAINWIN=MIN  ( minimized window )
MAINWIN=MAX  ( maximized window )

or do you mean that the sqlbase window should be hidden ( no console )?


RE: Minimize SQLBASE on restart

I'm using sqlbase 7.5.1. I looked in the sql.ini and there is no dbnt1sv.gui section and no place where mainwin exists. I was mainly interested in having the thing start minimized, but if it can be started hidden (no console) that would be even better. Thanks

shut down the server with Windows Task Manager. The only way you can shut down the server
is through SQLTalk or the SQLBase API.
This keyword is optional. Configure this keyword in any server section of SQL.INI.
Default value By default, multi-user server displays are on (0).
Example To set the display of the server screens off, specify:
