Database server and database naming

You can use -n as a database server option (to name the database server) or as a database option (to name the database).

Client applications can use connection parameters that specify the database server name and database name when connecting to a database. The database server name appears on the desktop icon and in the title bar of the database server messages window.

You cannot create a database or start a database server with the name utility_db because this name is reserved for the SQL Anywhere utility database. See Utility databases.
