Understanding how iServer uses the connection configuration file
When the report runs, iServer searches the path in the configuration file parameter for the configuration file that contains the valid ConnectOptions values. The Factory process reads the configuration file containing the ConnectOptions values when the process starts. Factory processes that are running when you change the configuration file do not use the new information. Only Factory processes that start after the configuration file changes use the new information. To ensure that a report executable file uses the updated configuration file information, confirm that no reports are active and stop all currently running Factory processes before you change the configuration file. After you change the file, iServer starts a Factory process for the next report request using these settings.
