The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Why is there no "Stop database after last disconnect" checkbox on the ODBC Administrator - Login tab when the Action: is set to "Start and connect to a database on another computer"?

alt text

Testing via the ODBC Administrator - ODBC tab - Test connection button indicates that AutoStop defaults to YES, because the test connection causes the database to be started AND stopped on the other computer... and I can't find any way to set AUTOSTOP to NO ( OK, I guess I could use the Advanced tab :)

The checkbox DOES appear when Action: is set to "Start and connect to a database on this computer".

This was a bug in the connection dialog. The checkbox was simply not added. It will be fixed in build
