Stopping Omnis from asking for a Datafile
The answer is no, you can’t stop Omnis from asking for a datafile, I think. Which could lead users to connect to a dummy datafile and not be any the wiser, until people start noticing missing data, etc.
So can you stop Omnis from asking for a connection to a DF1 if the licences are all in use, either due to valid or invalid logons?
