Redirecting clients automatically with the DBPATH environment variable

You can use the DBPATH environment variable in applications to redirect connections.

What the administrator must do

Administrators take no action to redirect clients, but they might be required to attend to the type of the database server.

What the user must do

If your applications contain code that tests if a connection has failed and issues a reconnect statement if necessary, redirection is handled automatically. The user has no responsibilities.

If your applications do not include such code, users who are running clients must quit and restart all applications.
