View By: Click to change display order for the two tables in this dialog. Server lists server names and details first, as shown above. Click Mappings to display this table first. Items in the Mappings table display for the selected server, as shown above for 60064qacm.

The first column of the first table indicates server state. A green check mark indicates "online" status - the server is active in the Shared Database configuration and is updated regularly.

Servers are "offline" if a connection problem or ColdFusion error occurs during synchronization.
