Opening a database

If you are a database administrator or a security administrator, you can open a database, or create a new one, after logging on to a security file. You can have several databases open in the same session provided that the databases are associated with the same security file.

You can also choose to work without an open database, for example to work with the Security Manager or to check and repair databases.

There is an example database, the User Guide database. See About the example database for details.

Note: You will not be able to open the database if someone else has already opened it in any other i2 application. Examples of such applications are iBase, iBase Designer, and i2 Analyst's Notebook.
