See the Natural documentation for information on how to start the installation; then follow the instructions of the installation program.
See Release Notes for the current version.
Ensure that your desired broker is accessible. This means that your
installation requires the correct RPC server (
SRVNAME) and broker
SRVNODE) names to be entered in your Natural parameter module
SYSESM2). Alternatively, you can add the parameter
Specify RPC Client's Default Server Address (DSF)
dynamically at your startup shortcut.
Ensure that your RPC server has got the definitions for logical files 206 and 91. LFILE 206 must point to your Entire Output Management system file, LFILE 91 must point to your Entire Output Management active data file. If you did not split the Entire Output Management system file, both, LFILEs 206 and 91 will point to your Entire Output Management system file, because in this case Entire Output Management system file and active data file are one and the same file.
If Natural Security is installed on the server and the server library
SYSSAT is protected, the Output Management GUI Client user has to
be linked to the library
SYSSAT or has to be a member of a group
which is linked to
The Output Management GUI Client may already have been installed together with Natural Windows (Development version or Runtime version).
If not, proceed as follows:
Start the Software AG Installer and specify all required information on the different panels.
When the product selection tree is displayed, expand the Natural Products > Natural node.
Select Development environment and/or Runtime environment.
Select Entire Systems Management.
This installs Mainframe Navigation, Output Management GUI Client and Entire Operations GUI Client. In addition, it installs the EntireX Miniruntime (if it is not installed already).
Choose Next to continue with the installation.
When the Software AG Installer has finished to installation, you have to initialize the Output Management GUI Client.
To do so:
Select All Programs > Software AG > Administration > ESM Configuration for Natural n.n (n.n = the current version number) from the Windows Start menu.
By default, the Start menu group name is Software AG, but this may have been changed by the installation.
A dialog box will be displayed, in which you open the drop-down list box next to Output Management GUI Client and deselect the products you do not want to be initialized.
Save configuration for updates: Select this
option, if the configuration of selected/deselected products is to be used
again automatically after an INPL of the Natural system library
SYSSATGF. Deselect this option, if you wish this dialog to be
displayed again to specify a different configuration.
The Output Management GUI Client will be shown in the Entire Systems Management application window when Entire Systems Management is started again.
As an administrator, you may customize the dialog of the ESM Configuration for Natural n.n utility. You can change the following:
the default setting for the initialization of a GUI component,
the default language,
the silent initialization.
To do so, you place an XML file named
esminit.xml in the
prof directory of the Natural installation used (typically, this
The basic version of
<?xml version="1.0" ?> <!-- language="1" English --> <!-- language="2" German --> <esmInit silent="false" language="2"> <!-- Mainframe Navigation --> <app short="AND" action="remove" /> <!-- Output Management --> <app short="NOM" action=" " /> <!-- Entire Operations --> <app short="OPC" action="initialize" /> </esmInit>
If you run
ESINIT-D with the above configuration, the
German-language version of the dialog shows the following three actions:
Initialize for Output Management with default action,
Initialize for Entire Operations,
Remove if already installed, or no action for Mainframe Navigation.
||The dialog is shown for the user action (default).|
||The action is performed, but the dialog is not shown.|

specified, the dialog is shown (as with
||Set dialog language to English (default).|
||Set dialog language to German.|
|If this attribute is not specified, the current language of the installed Natural is used.|
||This attribute can be used to save

||Do not save the configuration.|
||GUI component Mainframe Navigation.|
||GUI component Entire Operations.|
||GUI component Output Management.|
|If a GUI component defined by the system is not specified here, its default system settings are used.|
||Initialize the GUI component.|
||Remove the GUI component.|
Previous versions used the program
ESINIT-P to configure
the GUI components. It can still be used. The initialization is then done
depending on the existence of the GUI-component-specific Natural library.
To start the Output Management GUI Client:
Select Entire Systems Management for Natural from the Start Menu, or select the corresponding desktop icon.
