Only root and members of the imnadm (IMN administration) user group have the authority to perform administrative tasks for the Documentation Library Service. This includes tasks such as creating document indexes, registering indexes, and unregistering indexes. If you want users to be able to perform these functions, add them to the imnadm group using one of the administration tools.
Note: If you add users to the imnadm group, they are able to read the contents of all indexes on the system. See Security for more information.
When you open the global library application, all documents that are registered with the global view set are displayed. You might want to create a custom library application that only shows a subset of the documents on a documentation server. For example, you may want to put a "library" or "search" link inside the "Project X Plan" HTML document. When a user clicks on one of these links, a library opens and displays a list of the documents for Project X. You can then read or search these documents.
For instructions on how to create your own custom library applications, see the chapter on the documentation library service in AIX 5L Version 5.1 General Programming Concepts: Writing and Debugging Programs for more information.
