Definitions for Entire System Server - SATSRV

This section only applies to Entire System Server nodes on UNIX and Windows.

After the installation of Entire Operations or Entire Output Management, you have to create a Natural text object SATSRV in the library SYSSATU, as described in this section.

You have to customize the text object SATSRV to contain the required parameter definitions for System Automation Tools.

For each service that is to be accessed via EntireX Broker, you need one section of parameter definitions in SATSRV. The entries in SATSRV have the format:

node-name   SATSRV TYPE=ACI

The individual parameters are described below.

For example definitions, see the text object SATSRVEX in the library SYSSATU, which can be used as a template for SATSRV.

To access a service in local mode (without using EntireX Broker), certain parameter definitions are required. Copy the second section of the example in SATSRVEX into SATSRV and replace service-name with a name of your choice.

Creating SATSRV for the First Time

If you are installing System Automation Tools for the first time, create SATSRV as follows:

  1. Invoke Natural and log on to the library SYSSATU.

  2. Issue the command EDIT SATSRVEX.

  3. Issue the command SAVE SATSRV.

SATSRV Parameters

Parameter Explanation
node-name It is recommended that the same name as the server-name be used.

For Entire Operations, see note below.

TYPE The type of communication: It must always be ACI.
BROKER-ID Corresponds to the parameter BROKER-ID specified in the EntireX Broker attribute file.

broker-id is the name of the EntireX Broker under which the service is started, for example, BRK034.

If Entire Operations or Entire Output Management is executed in a UNIX or a Windows environment, for broker-id the following syntax can be used: host:port:TCP. Example: BROKER-ID=ibm1:3800:TCP

SERVER-CLASS Corresponds to the parameter CLASS specified in the EntireX Broker attribute file.
SERVER-NAME Corresponds to the parameter SERVER in the SDPA structure.

server-name is the name of a mainframe or a UNIX server.

For Entire Operations, see note below.

SERVICE Corresponds to the parameter SERVICE specified in the EntireX Broker attribute file.

service-name is the name of the EntireX Broker Service.

USER-ID Corresponds to the parameter USER-ID specified in the EntireX Broker attribute file.

user-id is the user ID for the mainframe or the UNIX server.

WAIT-TIME Corresponds to the parameter WAIT specified in the EntireX Broker attribute file.

seconds is the 3-character wait time in seconds, for example, 60S.

LOCALE-STRING Corresponds to the parameter LOCALE_STRING in the SDPA structure.

The parameter is important for character-set translation and conversion.

Note for Entire Operations:

The node-name and the server-name must correspond to the node names specified in the Entire Operations node table; see Definition of Nodes in the Entire Operations Administration documentation.

Also,node-name and service-name must correspond to a section name within the npr.ini file on the target system. We recommend that the same identifiers be used for node names and service names.
