All Rights Reserved 6 »Cobra now uses the Config.dat and Datasources.dat files to store data sources information during a clean installation. »During an upgrade installation, Cobra reads the content of the IdeaBlade.ibconfig file and then transfers the data sources information from there to the Config.dat and Datasources.dat files.

  8. 8. Drop Reliance on ODBC DSN 8 Cobra no longer has to rely on an explicit ODBC DSN when connecting to a database to run application processes, such as integration, backup, and restore. Instead, Cobra dynamically creates a connection that the application processes will use to connect to the database. During an upgrade, Cobra will still continue to use the ODBC DSN associated with your connection, if specified in your Data Tool. To remove this reliance on the ODBC DSN, you can create a new connection using the Data Tool, or you can modify the Datasources.dat file to remove the DSN option. © Deltek, Inc. All Rights Reserved
