Job server configuration on linux OS for BODS 4.0 SP3

Hello,

We have installed BODS 4.0 SP3 server on linux OS.

While doing the installation, I have chosen "Skip Configuration" for Configure Job Server.

Now I would like to do the job server Configuration.

Also I could not see Data Services Server Manager and Data Services Job server under BODS 4.0 Client tools which I installed on my local desktop.

Please help me on this how can I configure a job server.

Regards,

Aparna.

    Hi Aparna,

    The JobServer is local to the machine you are on. This is why

    "I could not see Data Services Server Manager and Data Services Job server under BODS 4.0 Client tools which I installed on my local desktop."

    The Server manager will tell you which JobServers are installed on that machine.

    You can login to your linux box and type

    $ cd $LINK_DIR/bin <= if that does not work because $LINK_DIR has not been defined, manually goto the installation directory , cd bin. This is a chicken,egg thing, . ./al_env.sh is a script that defines $LINK_DIR ..

    $ . ./al_env.sh

    $ ./svrcfg <= this is the server configuration manager for Linux.

    It is a menu driven process, but in text format so it can take a little to get used to. But basically there are the same settings.

    Just in case you did not do this during after installation you should put the script line "../al_env.sh" into your login profile (that sets the environment variables) . I don't remember if the script adds the $LINK_DIR/bin to the path ..otherwise you should do that as well.

    Login to your home directory and look for

    .profile, .bash_profile or .bashrc . One of them will be used to define $PATH , you can add :$LINK_DIR/bin

    to it, if you have run the . ./al_env.sh script before this line.

    This is daily routine for your Linux admin.

    Regards

    Norbert
