7.2 The Path Wizard

The Path Wizard provides a step-by-step way to configure the path requirements needed for a ALC, T27, and UTS terminal sessions. The Path Wizard can guide you to select the appropriate library and network for your connection type and other specifications required by the host. The Path Wizard also allows you configure paths that connect to host using centralized management server features such s ID Management.

NOTE:To modify an existing path use the Database Editor.

To launch the Path Wizard from the InfoConnect Workspace

  1. Start the InfoConnect Workspace.

  2. Select an ALC, UTS, or T27 terminal template and click Create. (The choices available depend on your InfoConnect product.)

  3. Click Create Path.

The prompts vary, depending on the host and connection type you select.

  • If your host uses terminal IDs, you'll need to provide a terminal address and ID in the format required by your host or, if you use ID management through the centralized management server, you'll need to provide the server URL.

  • For all types, before you can complete the wizard, you'll need to provide a name for your new path.

There are additional options for each connection type. If you are unsure about some of the information required, contact your system administrator.
