    Installing Multiple SafeSFS Servers


The following section describes how to set up and use multiple SafeSFS servers. SafeSFS installation in additional SafeSFS servers is identical to the installation procedure for the initial SafeSFS server except for the name of the server and the following steps that are required when using a SafeSFS server with a name other than SAFESFS. The following steps should be repeated for each additional SafeSFS server.

Step 1: Update the SERVER record in the SAFESFS CONTROL file.
Update the SERVER record in the SAFESFS CONTROL file to match the userid of the SafeSFS server. See "Customize SafeSFS - Step 1" in this chapter for more details.

Step 2: Update the link to the SafeSFS DBA mdisk for each SFS server.
Update the link from each SFS server to the SafeSFS DBA mdisk to contain the name of the SafeSFS server. See "Install the SafeSFS SFS Component - Step 1" in this chapter for more details.

Step 3: Copy and rename the SAFESFS EXEC.
Copy the SAFESFS EXEC file to servername EXEC where servername is the userid of the SafeSFS server. Place this exec on an mdisk or SFS directory that will be accessed by users of this SafeSFS server. See "Install the SafeSFS User Interface" section in this chapter for more details.

Step 4: Update the $SAFESFS XEDIT file.
Copy the $SAFESFS XEDIT file to the mdisk or SFS directory used in step 3 above. Then edit and modify the file to change the record containing "G_SafeSFS_Exec_Name = 'SAFESFS'" to "G_SafeSFS_Exec_Name = 'serverid'" where serverid is the userid of the SafeSFS server.

Step 5: Update the UCOMDIR NAMES file.
Create a copy of UCOMDIR NAMES file on the SAFESFS 191 mdisk and update the NICKNAME, USERID, and TPN fields in the UCOMDIR NAMES file to match the userid of the SafeSFS server. The new UCOMDIR NAMES file should be placed on an mdisk or SFS directory that is accessible to users of this SafeSFS server. See the "Install the SafeSFS User Interface" section in this chapter for more details.

Step 6: Update the $SERVER$ NAMES file.
Update the NICKNAME field in the $SERVER$ NAMES file on the SafeSFS server's 192 mdisk to match the userid of the SafeSFS server.

Note: Users of this SafeSFS server should invoke SafeSFS commands by prefixing them with the serverid.
