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.
