Question: Tools on WTS

Zoltan_Gyimesi

Thank the Lists/Forums, we already know how can we enable the Tools on WTS.
Please, let me some further question about this issue.

1.) Has this solution (OWDEVELOPER User Group) been published by JDE? If yes, then how can I find on KG?
2.) Is there any limitation for the usage the Tools on WTS? e.g.:
2.a.) Can more than one user use the tools concurrently?
2.b.) Can more than one user use the SAME tools concurrently?
2.c.) Can the SAME user use the tools concurrently signed on different WTS terminal?
2.d.) Any other limitation?

Did anybody use the Tools strongly on WTS?
Any shared experiences, tips and traps will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Zoltán

Hi Zoltan,

I’ve been told that spec files support only one pointer. TSE has only one installation of JDE and if more than one user try to check in or out concurrently result will be unpredictable (probably spec will be damaged). What I don’t understand is what about JITI (Just in Time Install) event? Isn’t JITI some kind of check out? JITI can happen for two different objects and users concurrently.

Best regards,

Bojan.
 
Hi Bojan,

Central objects are made up of 2 components: A relational database component
(F987* tables) and C-specs.

JITI (as name indicates) in an installation method of replicating the
relational database portion of central objects. These objects are replicated
from the F987* tables to the spec tables (*.ddb) on all clients (Thick, TSE
etc) when the object is not found in the global tables on the client
(GLBLTBL) and a.n.user attempts to run the object.

C-specs replication requires a package build, dll/sl/svrpgm (depending on
Enterprise server) are compiled from the C-source on the deployment server.

Checking out replicates the object to the client, but also indicates to the
object librarian (preXe) or OMW (Xe) that the specifications are being
worked on. It also allows for modification of the specifications, of which
there is only one copy, shared by all.

As there is only one copy of replicated TAM specs on terminal server, the
check out threat this poses is someone modifying the specifications, whilst
a.n.other user is attempting to run the object.

Bojan, OW Consult

Thanks both of you for your answers.

I think, I will be on the safe side and avoid developments on WTS except fully contolled circumtances.

The only hart ache for me that the really innocent UTB isn't available which is used frequently by consultants and expert users.

Do you have any idea making available UTB only without any risk?

Regards,
Zoltán

Hi Zoltan,

Yes. As the FDA/RDA/Debug etc. are applications (exe), secure these down
with the Administrator on Terminal server. This way only Administrator has
permission to run them. I would also, for your list of power users
(consultants) that use UTB, grant them permissions to run the UTB
application (UTB.EXE).
