    Default Shadow

    With three people sharing a database, and one of the three computers hosting it, all with runtimes...Should the person who is hosting create a shadow?

    I can't think of a good reason for the host computer to use a shadow. He/she may want to create one just to make sure the shadow is working correctly, etc. without having to go to the other machines.

    Are there any drawbacks to having a shadow on the host?

    The reason we're doing it this way is that the city didn't want to disable opportunistic locking on their server.

    I do not think there are any drawbacks to get excited about. But unless I misunderstand your situation, I still do not see any reason to do it.
