Define Caché databases.
Synopsis
[Databases]    Name=a,b,c,d,e, f
Description
Each entry has up to six comma-separated arguments that define a database. The only argument that is required is the first, the directory specification. If the other arguments are not specified, then the default is used. From left to right:
By default even if they are not specified, the CACHESYS, CACHELIB, CACHETEMP, and CACHEAUDIT databases must be local to the system, private mounted, and mount required at startup.
Examples
In the [Databases] section, each line is a database with arguments Name=a,b,c,d,e,f. Here is an example from Windows:
[Databases]
CACHESYS=c:\cache\mgr\
CACHELIB=c:\cache\mgr\cachelib\
CACHETEMP=c:\cache\mgr\cachetemp\
CACHEAUDIT=c:\cache\mgr\cacheaudit\
DOCBOOK=c:\cache\mgr\docbook\
SAMPLES=c:\cache\mgr\samples\
USER=c:\cache\mgr\user\
SALES=c:\sales\,SALESERVER 
; Database is on system SALESERVER
BILLING=/usr/billing/,,1                    
; Database is local and mount required
CLUSTER=dka300:[cluster],,,1      ; Database is cluster mounted
Example of remote databases without mirroring:
PRDAUDIT=c:\cache\mgr\prdaudit\,PRD
PRDDCIFC=\cache\mgr\prddata\,PRD
PRDERR=\cache\mgr\prderr\,,1 
Example of remote databases with mirroring. Note in this mirrored example the two remote databases, both mirrored and non-mirrored, are formatted differently than they would be in a non-mirrored environment.
PRDAUDIT=:mirror:PRDMIRROR:PRDAUDIT,PRD - Mirrored remote database
PRDDCIFC=:ds:PRDDCIFC,PRD - Non-mirrored remote database
PRDERR=\cache\mgr\prderr\,,1 - Local database 
Range of Values
As described above.
