The application should only be asking the server which is hosting your database
to supply the 'view' of the information. You would normally configure an
application with the server machine name and the 'name' of the database. The
file alias.conf on the server would then map that name to the local location of
the file. It is not normally necessary to know where the database is stored
other than that, and if your 3rd party supplier has not provided that
configuration then they need to explain why!
