Shared Entry Names
This tip will explain why and how you would use shared Entry Names.
SQL Names Cannot Be Shared
A vMedia database uses a SQL User Name and Password to open the table. However, if you have more than one vMedia database, it’s impractical to assign a single User Name/Password to both unless you never plan to change the password. Changing the password in one database would break the connection to the second database. This is because the User Name/Password information is stored in an encrypted DSN file for each vMedia database.
Entry Names Can Be Shared
If you have more than one database that you want to protect, you should consider using a shared Entry Name. A shared Entry Name allows you to share a single SQL User login with multiple vMedia databases. You just need to make one change during the creation of a database connection: add an Entry Name.
