Windows and Mac client users do not need to perform additional
steps to configure their Multi-Tier clients. Unix client users must
insure that their OpenLink environment variables are set. The
following instructions will assist these users with this task:
- Users must login to their Unix clients.
- Users must cd into the root of their OpenLink
- Users may run openlink.sh in a Bash or Bourne shell.
Alternatively, users may run openlink.csh in a C shell.
All users must insure that their server components are properly
configured. The following instructions will assist all users with
- Unix users must login to their Unix servers and cd into the
root of their OpenLink installations. These users may run
openlink.sh in a Bourne or Bash shell. Alternatively if you are
using a C shell, you require openlink.csh.
- All users must open their Session Rules Books. The Session
Rules Book is the oplrqb.ini file, which reside in the /bin
sub-directory of the OpenLink installation. Users may open
oplrqb.ini with vi, Notepad, or another text editor. Locate the
Environment section that corresponds to your
OpenLink database agent and set the variables that are appropriate
to to your Database setup. Typically, the main information required
is the installation directory and location of the database
libraries. If you are unsure what these values are, please request
them from your Database or System administrator. Typically running
the command `env' under the guise of the database owner will
provide you with the necessary information
- Users must start their OpenLink Request Broker services. To do
this on Unix, from the shell or terminal prompt run ./oplrqb either
from the /bin sub-directory of your OpenLink installation or if
openlink.sh/csh has been run, anywhere in the system. Windows users
may start oplrqb with their Services Control Panel utility.
