The details of configuring the login and password for a remote connection to a database
Sometimes you need to have a remote connection to SQL Database. It means that you will be configuring the login and password for a remote connection to a database. While configuring it, you will see these two little checkboxes:
Please note that leaving them checked will lead to the following situation: when the password validation period expires, SmartPTT will no longer be able to connect to the database. SmartPTT will shut down, because it is not possible to write anything on the database, and, as our Dispatcher is based on the database work, it cannot even start without a database connection. It means that you will have to go and manually reset the password to a new one and reconfigure it in all dispatchers and servers, which use it.
