How to connect from local system to Central Repository in Multi-User environment

Hi,

We are currently trying to setup Multi-user environment in DS 4.0.

1. We have created the Secure Central Repository through DS Repository Manager.

2. Registered the Secure Central Repository in Central Management Console.

3. Created the Required Users and provided the Access rights to the users which should be logging in to the central repository in CMC.

4. Created the same Users and groups in DS Management Console.

5. Installed the DS Designer on local client.

when we try to login from local designer window to Central repository it is asking for System - host [:Port]: , Username, Password.

we tried with the SERVERNAME:4000, USERNAME, PASSWORD but it is not accepting.

Kindly let me know is there anything that I am missing during this whole process.

Kindly treat this as very urgent requirement.

Regards,

    Hi,

    If I understand your requirement correctly, say you have 5 users. All 5 of them need to need access secure central DS repository. If this the case, in addition to the steps you have mentioned above, add these...

    1. We have created the Secure Central Repository through DS Repository Manager.

    1a. create 5 local repositories.

    2. Registered the Secure Central Repository in Central Management Console.

    3. Created the Required Users and provided the Access rights to the users which should be logging in to the central repository in CMC.

    3a. provide access to local repositories for each user.

    4. Created the same Users and groups in DS Management Console. - here you will be associating the users (created in CMC) with central repository (registered in CMC).

    5. Installed the DS Designer on local client. - while loggin on, choose 'Enterprise' logon and provide other details... server name, user, pwd. now when you log on, it will list the local repositories the user (who has logged in) has access to. choose the repository and log on. then you will able to pick the central repo under 'tools > central repositories'.

    Let me know if my understanding of your requirement is right, and if yes, try the steps above. If you still face some issues, post the screen shot of the error. It will be helpful for further analysis.

    Thanks, Arun J.

      I think I ran into the same issue. If I understand correctly, you created local repositories on your BODS server and you also created job servers there and linked them to those repositories. Furthermore, when you log on to your Data Services administration console (by default: http://job_server:8080/DataServices) everything seems to be fine and you can even run jobs. If you cannot run jobs from the console as well, you may have a different problem.

      In my case it was because the job server is only known by its host name 'job_server' to the repository, but my workstation would need to have the fully qualified host name 'job_server.mycompany.com' to connect to it. What I did was add the IP address of 'job_server.mycompany.com' to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and to add the hostname itself, the line would look like this:

      128.128.128.128     job_server

      (you need to replace the ip address and the job_server name with you own information)

      Another option would probably be using a default domain, but that might not always be possible.

    Create the ODBC connection with same credentials and connection name which you've used/given in the server.

    I don't think so you can login to a secured central repo. If you try to resync then this could corrupt the repository.

      Multiuser environment is controlled and need to be purchased and i think it is optional when you get the software. Check in the key whether it is available/enabled.
