Sets the number of open connections to the database. Default is 15. The default for standalone applets is 4.

This setting applies to the Content Server and any standalone applications and utilities, so each application will use the specified number of connections.

If your database does not allow enough connections to be open at one time, an error will occur when you attempt to start an application or utility.

To avoid this problem, you can isolate the NumConnections setting for the Content Server from the setting for applications and utilities as follows:

  1. Specify the NumConnections setting for the Content Server in the DomainHome/ucm/cs/bin/intradoc.cfg file rather than IntradocDir/config/config.cfg.

  2. Make a copy of the DomainHome/ucm/cs/bin directory and give it a unique name (such as DomainHome/ucm/cs/applet_bin/).

  3. Set the NumConnections value for application and utilities in the intradoc.cfg file in the new directory (for example, NumConnections=2).

  4. Run applications and utilities from the new directory (change any scripts and shortcuts in Windows), but continue to run the Content Server from the DomainHome/ucm/cs/bin/ directory.

If necessary, you can create a separate directory and NumConnections setting for each application and utility.
