To Run casperm

  1. Log in as root.
  2. Set COBDIR to the location of the installed product.
  3. Enter:

    You see a message asking you to ensure you have the alphanumeric user ID of the Enterprise Server System Administrator to hand. This becomes the Process User ID.

    You then see the message:

    Do you want Error and Warning messages to be displayed via the syslog daemon (y/n)? 

    The console messages are always directed to the file console.log. Responding Y to this prompt will also direct them to the syslog daemon as Info type messages.

  4. Enter Y or N.

    You then see the message:

    Enter the alphanumeric user ID of the Enterprise Server System Administrator.
    Press return to use (hub):

    This is the user id which will be the owner of all Enterprise Server processes with the exception of the Directory Server, which must run as root. It is known as the Process User ID. When an enterprise server is started from the Administration Server Administration it will run under this user ID. Since all the server's processes will run with this user's authority this has implications for file creation and access. The Directory Server has to run as root because the Directory Server process (Enterprise Server Administration) uses port 86. This port is only accessible to processes running with root authority.

  5. Enter the Process User ID or press Enter to use the default value.

    You then see the message:

    Enter the directory where you want the Enterprise Server
     run-time system files to reside. Please enter the absolute path.
     Do not use environment variables. Press return to use (/var/mfcobol/es):

    You should take the default unless you have a good reason not to.

    The directory given here will be the root for the working directory for all enterprise servers run in this installation. A new directory will be created for each server the first time it is run and a number of files will be created in this location including the console.log file and diagnostics files. It is imperative that the Process User ID has create and write permissions in this directory.

  6. Press Enter to accept the default or enter the directory you want to use.

    The script executes and processes the settings you entered above. Once complete, it displays the following message:

    Processing –f option...

    Then the command terminates.
