Setting Options for a Remote Server

View or change or remote server options.

To set options for a remote server, click the Name field of the remote server, then click the drop-down arrow and select Properties > Options.
Option Description
Server cost (Component Integration Services only) Specifies the cost of a single exchange under the user’s control, on a per-server basis.
CIS hafailover (Component Integration Services only) When enabled, instructs Open Client to use automatic fail over when connections fail. In this case, CIS connection failures automatically failover to the server specified in directory services (such as the interface file and LDAP server) as the failover server.
Enable login redirection Used by the server workload manager to send incoming connections to specific instances based on the logical cluster configuration and the cluster’s current workload.
External engine auto start Specifies that EJB Server starts each time the server starts. The default is true; starting the server also starts the EJB Server.
Mutual authentication Verifies the identity of the client and the server. The local server initiating the remote connection can request mutual authentication for all remote connection requests to target a server. This allows the client to verify the identity of the remote server.
Negotiated logins (Component Integration Services only) This option is necessary if CIS connections to XP Server or Backup Server are required. When enabled, Omni connects to the specified server and establishes a callback handler that can respond appropriately to login challenges from XP Server and Backup Server.
Net password encryption Specifies whether to initiate connections with a remote server with the client-side password encryption handshake or with the normal (unencrypted password) handshake sequence. The default is false, which means that no network encryption takes place.
Readonly (Component Integration Services only) Specifies that access to the server named is read-only.
Relocated joins Permits joins between local and remote tables to be on the remote server.
Security mechanism External software that provides security services for a connection.
Server logins (Component Integration Services only) To fully support remote logins, Client-Library provides connection properties that enable CIS to request a server connection. This connection is recognized at the receiving server as a server connection (as opposed to an ordinary client connection), allowing the remote server to validate the connection as if the connection were made by a site handler.
Timeouts When unset (false), disables the normal timeout code used by the local server, so the site connection handler does not automatically drop the physical connection after one minute with no logical connection.
Use message confidentiality Data is encrypted over the network to protect against unauthorized disclosure.
Use message integrity Verifies that communications have not been modified during transport.
