Setting user access

  1. From the Rumba Tools program group, start the Rumba APPC Configuration tool.
  2. Select File > Advanced.
  3. Check Use Administrator Override Configuration.
  4. Enter the full path of the configuration file that you want the users to access, or click Browse to select it.
  5. Optional: To ensure that the next person gets the same configuration, select Make configuration available to all users of this machine. This uses the \\HKEY\LOCAL_MACHINE\ registry instead of the \\HKEY\CURRENT_USER registry.
  6. Select File > Save.
  7. Close the Rumba APPC Configuration tool.

When you specify the path, we strongly recommend that you use the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) instead of a mapped drive letter. If you use the UNC, the connection does not rely on a mapped drive letter that could be overwritten or corrupted.

  • If you use Browse, the path is returned in UNC format.
  • If the Rumba APPC Configuration tool cannot find the file you specified in the path for the administrator override file, a warning is displayed. The situation might be that the workstation is not currently attached to the network, or that the user does not have permission to access the server that you specified in the path. If so, and the path is correct, choose to continue and exit.
  • From the operating system’s ComputerName, the Rumba APPC Configuration tool extracts a default control point name for the local configuration file. If you want to, you can specify another control point name by simply changing the field. Any changes you make to the control point name are also made automatically to the local LU name.
  • You must use a .cfg extension on the file name. If you do not specify an extension, the Rumba APPC Configuration tool appends .cfg to the file name. The Rumba APPC Configuration tool supports both 9.5 SP1 format file names and long file names.
