Allow Multiple Database Server/Requester Pairs to Be Defined Via
Basic Configuration Services

      A program is disclosed that allows a user to define
multiple Database Manager server/requester pairs within a single
configuration file generated by Basic Configuration Services.

      The Basic Configuration Services portion of the installation
process for OS/2* Extended Edition 1.2 only supports the definition
of one Database Manager server/requester pair per configuration file.
This means that a Database Manager requester can only be set up to
communicate with one Database Manager server if Basic Configuration
Services is used. If the requester needs to communicate with more
than one server, the user must use Advanced Configuration Services to
modify the configuration file generated by Basic Configuration
Services.

      Basic Configuration Services will be extended to allow a user
to specify multiple servers which a requester can communicate with.
The USER WILL NO LONGER HAVE TO MODIFY THE BASIC CONFIGURATION
SERVICES configuration file. Since most customers will use Basic
Configuration Services, this will be a significant enhancement,
especially for large networks.
