4.5.8.1.3. Global and local specification of the settings - Privileges for Admin

[Note] Note

The usage of the PARTapplicationServer may be specified globally and locally.

First of all the file $CADENAS_SETUP/pappclient.cfg applies globally for all users.

However, in the file $CADENAS_USER/partsolu.cfg, for single clients certain keys can be overwritten locally. If nothing is set, then the settings from pappclient.cfg apply.

Example:

Configuration file: $CADENAS_SETUP/pappclient.cfg:

[COMMON] 
clientmode=remote 
remoteFileSystem=YES

applications=pdatamgr,pseamless

applications=pdatamgr,pseamless (default): PARTdataManager and Seamless fetch their data from AppServer.

clientmode=remote: Connect with RemoteServer

remoteFileSystem=YES: The Remote File System shall be used, meaning the catalogs shall be fetched via AppServer.

In this case, if a normal user tries to perform a NativeCheckin, an error message is displayed:

No write access possible because the access to the catalogs is done by the AppServer. To be able to perform the check-in, you must enable the direct access to the server for this client

Reason:

  1. The global configuration file defines, that PARTdataManager (thereover the interface function NativeCheckin runs) uses the PARTapplicationServer.

    (applications=pdatamgr,pseamless)

  2. Furthermore the Remote File System shall be used via AppServer.

    (remoteFileSystem=YES)

So when in the local configuration file, for example at an Admin working place the key remoteFileSystem is overridden, NativeCheckin should be possible.

Configuration file: $CADENAS_USER/partsolu.cfg:

[COMMON]
remoteFileSystem=NO

Now access to $CADENAS_DATA does not happen via AppServer, which does not have write access, anymore. Now $CADENAS_DATA can be accessed via UNC or network drive.

[Note] Note

For Admin computers, please set the environment variable $CADENAS_DATA respectively.

The DATA path via which the PARTapplicationServer accesses the catalogs, is displayed in the dialog box Server state.

Therefor, in PARTadmin -> category AppServer client, click on the button Show server state.

On the tabbed page Environment, you can find the line CADENAS_DATA.
