basically two ways in which you can provide multiple end users with access
to Version 5.
|You can run Version 5 using CATIA Version 4 userids. Using Version 5 with a CATIA Version 4 userid is transparent as is the case for other userids.|
Mounting and Exporting File Systems
The distribution scenarios described in this section are based on mounting NFS file systems. Note that you can also use DFS (Distributed File System). DFS is an open, cross-platform distributed file system for managing network security and administration, and is compatible with Version 5.
The scenarios in this section involve mounting and exporting file systems between source and destination machines.
To mount a directory or a file system you must:
Furthermore, file mounts can be temporary or permanent.
Export the directory
If you do not export a directory or file system, it cannot be mounted elsewhere. On AIX and HP-UX machines, use the following command to temporarily export a directory or a file system:
On Solaris machines, use the following command to export a directory or a file system temporarily:
Note that you can only export file systems. If the directory you are trying to export is not a file system, depending on your OS level and your machine, either it will not work at all or it will export the higher-level file system in the path. If it doesn't work, use the command:
in order to know which file system to export if it's done automatically.
Mount a Directory
On AIX, HP-UX and Solaris machines, the command you must use in order to mount a directory on your machine is:
Note that the mount directory is not necessarily a file system, but the file system it depends on must be exported on the source machine as explained above.
Note that you must mount /CDROM with the option ro (read only).
Unmount a Directory
You can unmount the directories, which are mounted on the system by using this command:
To make permanent mounts, the principle is the same. The only difference is that you must write the information in files instead of launching commands.
Export the File Systems
First, modify the file in which all the permanently exported directories are written.
On AIX and HP-UX, this file is:
For each file system you want to export, you must add (or modify ) a line:
On a Solaris computer, the file you must modify is:
You must include this type of line:
Again, we can only export file systems. If you want to mount a directory, you must export the higher-level file system in the path.
Once you've modified the file, you must use the following command. If you don't use this command, the computer will not take into account your modifications until the next restart:
Make a Permanent Mount
In order to mount a directory permanently on an AIX computer, you must modify the file:
For each directory, you must add certain lines in this file:
On an HP-UX machine, the file you must modify is named:
you must insert a line like this:
On a Solaris machine, the file you must modify is:
The line structure is:
On all machine types, once you've modified the file, don't forget to launch the command:
otherwise your modifications will not be taken into account until the machine is restarted.
