ACT Database Configuration

[ Edited ]


 Does ACT use local database only? Can we configure it to use Central Database server?


Thanks in advance,

Re: ACT Database Configuration

ACT! can use either local or non-local databases.  The .PAD file contains the machine and database attributes to which ACT! connects physically.


There are some KB Articles on the support site at on how to share a database.  Basically, an instance of SQL Server 2005 which is installed when ACT! is installed, must host the database.  SQL Server is a service based RDBMS which allows ACT! to leverage and scale in a client/server model.
