Opening the database in iBase Designer after alerting is configured

Before you can open a database in iBase Designer, you must have exclusive access to that database. This means that no users can be connected to that database in iBase, Analyst's Notebook, and no services for that database should be running.

You will be asked whether you want to shut down the database services. After waiting a few minutes for the services to be shut down, you can attempt to open the database. If you do not succeed, for example because users are still connected to the database, you are asked whether you want to retry or cancel. If you choose to cancel, the alerting jobs will automatically resume and the database will not be opened.

On exiting iBase Designer, the alerting jobs are automatically resumed.
