Building the Sample Environment on OpenVMS
We recently discovered that in Synergy versions up to and including 10.3.3d, I/O Hooks support was not functional on OpenVMS if the I/O hooks code was located in a shared image library. In order to configure
a replication environment on OpenVMS using this sample code it is necessary to be running Synergy 10.3.3d and also have the support hot-fix 37537 installed. Contact Synergex Support to obtain this hot-fix.
Refer to the various shell script files in the VMS directory.
Basic steps to build on VMS:
•Log into a privileged account (privilege is needed to start a detached process as SYSTEM)
•Create an empty directory and copy the sample environment there.
•Move to the VMS folder
•Execute the BUILD.COM command procedure.
•Edit REPLICATOR_SETUP.COM and check settings. In particular you will need to configure REPLICATOR_DATABASE based on the SQL Server database you intend to use.
•Start replicator as a detached process by executing REPLICATOR_DETACH.COM
•Or start the replicator as an interactive process by executing REPLICATOR_RUN.COM
•Check the log file in the [.LOG] folder and ensure that replicator was able to connect to the database.
•Run REPLICATOR_EXE:EMPLOYEEMAINANCE.EXE and use it to add instructions to the replicator queue.
•Run REPLICATOR_EXE:REPLICATORMENU and test using the EMPLOYEE file.
•Use the S command in REPLICATORMENU or run REPLICATOR_EXE:REPLICATORSSTOP.EXE to stop the replicator process.
