|This section explains the additional operations that have to performed to prepare the ENOVIA V5 VPM server environment.|
Editing the Server Environment
When you installed and set up the ENOVIA V5 VPM server, a runtime environment was created. You must now edit this environment and make some minor changes to ensure that end users logging onto the ENOVIA server inherit all the resources (settings, etc.) specific to each end user.
This mechanism concerns ENOVIA V5 VPM servers on both UNIX and Windows.
Note that, on Windows, you do not have to customize the default value: it will work as is. However, you are free to customize it if you wish. To do so:
On UNIX, however, the default variable MUST be edited, it does not work as is.
We strongly recommend that you do not skip this step.
Issuing the xhost + Command on UNIX Before Starting the Server
For UNIX installations only, the
There is an exception to the above on AIX servers, where the optional
use of XVFB (virtual frame buffer) is supported. When this is used, and the
application server DISPLAY environment entry in the application server is
appropriately set to use it, the xhost + isn't required.
When there is a problem anywhere in the DISPLAY setup, the last entry in
Here's an example of an AIX server containing both the hardware graphics
adapter (:0), and the XVFB (:1) capabilities setup. In this case, if the
application server is set up to use the hardware graphics adapter, the
Note: The XVFB setup is an excellent solution for situations where a hardware graphics adapter isn't available on the AIX server, or when optimum graphics processing throughput is desired, and sufficient server CPU and memory resources are available to support the requirements.
There is another situation on AIX servers that can lead to the
application server failing to start, as indicated above. This is where
someone has removed files from the
