Shared Infobase lists are .v8i files that contain references to shared Infobases. You can specify any number of shared Infobase lists to be processed during 1C:Enterprise startup in the 1C:Enterprise startup window settings dialog box. The Infobases included in these lists are added to the main Infobase list, which is displayed at 1C:Enterprise startup.
You can save a reference to an Infobase to a file, which simplifies the creation of shared Infobase lists.
You can run 1C:Enterprise with a specific shared Infobase list. In this scenario the list of available Infobases only contains the Infobases from the specified list.
