Preparing the primary computer

Before you install any application servers or Secondary Server features, you must export the /aiw file system and create an application/secondary server object in Ricoh ProcessDirector. You must also verify that an NFS server is installed and started on the primary computer.
To prepare the primary computer:
  1. Log in as the root user.
  2. Enter these commands:

    nfso -po nfs_use_reserved_ports=1

    chnfsdom <domain name>

    Where <domain name> is the fully qualified DNS domain the AIX primary server is in. This domain does not include the hostname of the primary server.

  3. Use SMIT to configure the NFS server on the primary computer to start both now and when the system restarts:
    1. Enter smitty nfs.
    2. Select Network File System (NFS) and press Enter.
    3. Select Configure NFS on This System and press Enter.
    4. Select Start NFS and press Enter.

      • If NFS is running, make sure you select Stop NFS before you select Start NFS.
    5. In the Set Start NFS now, on system restart or both field, select both.
    6. Press Enter.
    7. Press F10 to exit SMIT.
  4. If this is the first time you are setting up this primary computer for an application or secondary server, add /aiw to the exports list:
    1. Enter smitty nfs.
    2. Select Network File System (NFS) and press Enter.
    3. Select Add a Directory to Exports List.
    4. Type or select values in these fields. The bold entries in the example below show changes that you must make. Type the host name of the computer that is prepared for the application server or Secondary Server feature where new-secondary appears. Set the NFS versions to 4 or 3,4 where nfs-versions appears.
      Type or select values in entry fields.
      Press Enter AFTER making all changes

       new-secondary
       new-secondary
    5. Press Enter.
    6. Press F10 to exit SMIT.
  5. If another application server or Secondary server feature is already set up on this primary computer, update the exports list to include the new server:
    1. Enter smitty nfs.
    2. Select Network File System (NFS) and press Enter.
    3. Select Change/Show Attributes of an Exported Directory and press Enter.
    4. In the Set Pathname of exported directory field, type /aiw and press Enter.
    5. If your version of AIX has an Version of exported directory to be changed field, type the version number.
    6. Add the host name of the new application or secondary computer to the same fields where the other computers are already listed.
      In the example below, old-secondary is the host name of an existing secondary computer and new-secondary is the host name of a new secondary computer.
      Press Enter AFTER making all changes
      
         Hosts & netgroups allowed 
         client access
      
         Hosts allowed root access    
      [Entry Fields]
      
      [old-secondary,new-secondary]
      [old-secondary,new-secondary]
    7. Press Enter.
    8. Press F10 to exit SMIT.
  6. If your network does not have a Domain Name System (DNS) server, edit /etc/hosts on the primary computer to add the host name and IP address of the computer that is prepared for the application server or Secondary Server feature.
  7. Use the Ricoh ProcessDirector user interface to add and enable the application or secondary server:
    1. Open a Web browser and enter http://hostname:15080/aiw in the address bar replacing, hostname with the host name of the primary computer.
    2. Log in as an authorized user. The default user name is aiw.
    3. Click the Administration tab.
    4. In the left pane, click System → Servers.
    5. Click Actions → Add.
    6. Specify a server name and the IP address or host name for the application or secondary computer. As an option, specify a description and values for the other properties of the server.
    7. Choose an option for the In general server pool field.
      Servers in the general server pool can run any step defined in any workflow.

      For a secondary server that runs on an AIX or Linux system, you can specify either Yes or No. If you want the secondary server to run only specific steps, specify No in this field and then use the Tune function for each step template that you want to run on the secondary server.

      For an application server that runs on Windows, specify No for In general server pool.

      • If any steps send jobs to the application server , you must tune the step template appropriately.
    8. Click OK.
    9. Select the server and then click Enable.
