Am I correct that having datasets with the same name on two different workgroup servers where say one server is a test server and another is production is a problem? Won't the Trim client have problems? I seem to recall having problems with this like the client gets confused and can't register two datasets of the same name even though they are on different servers. Also what if the names are different but the IDs (for example 50) are the same. Will that cause a problem?
1. The dataset id must be unique whereever multiple datasets exist.
2. It's very helpful to humans that the TRIM dataset names are unique but it is not as important (I think TRIM has some protection in this area).
3. Generally you would not allow production workstations to have access to other environments (Testing, development, etc...) to avoid these very serious problems. If you do have cross over I hope you have some very good backup records.
