Before running Database Connectors, you must set the A_CONFIG environment variable to the name of the ACUFH configuration file. You may want to make and use a personalized copy of the ACUFH configuration file to avoid impacting other users. You could use the A_CONFIG environment variable to identify a personal ACUFH configuration file. For example:
A_CONFIG=directory-name/my-file-name export A_CONFIG
ensures the specified configuration file is used when interfacing with your database.
This section lists the ACUFH configuration file variables that are specific to Oracle. For ACUFH configuration file variables that are generally applicable to any RDBMS with which Database Connectors communicates, see ACUFH Configuration Variables in the Run Time Configuration section.
