When a Slave Visual LANSA System is first installed or upgraded to a new version of the LANSA software, you are required to perform a System Initialization. The System Initialization updates the required system software definitions in the Slave Visual LANSA System so that it matches the LANSA for iSeries Master System.
Whenever a change is made to the Master System, you must perform an update to the System Definitions in each of the Slave Systems to keep information synchronized. System Definition can be propagated automatically using Repository Synchronization.
Changes that require a system re-initialization would include the following:
- Modification to system definitions
- Additions or modifications to Standard Application Templates
- Additions or modifications to Standard Built-in Function Definitions
- Additions or modifications to Standard System Message File
- Additions or modifications to Standard System Variables
- Additions or modifications to Enrolled PC Names
- Additions or modifications to Enrolled PC Users
- Additions or modifications to Current Task List.
You can also use LANSA import/export features to transfer the system definitions. For more information, refer to Exporting System Definitions in the
