The data store for imip-agent holds calendar data and free/busy information. The following data store types exist:
A file store employing textual files in the filesystem
A database store employing database tables managed by a database management system
For simplicity, the file store is the default storage mechanism for imip-agent, but the database store is provided as an alternative where different operating characteristics are desired.
The configuration files (config.sh and config.txt) need updating to reflect the choice of data store, with the directory parameters set to appropriate values for the chosen store type.
