InfoPrint Manager namespace
The namespace for the InfoPrint Manager
system is created at install time. It is created in the
directory by default. The PDNAMESP environment variable can be used to override
the default location of the namespace. The namespace file system must be shared among
all server machines in an InfoPrint Manager
RICOH InfoPrint Manager for AIX: Getting Started
or InfoPrint Manager for Linux
for information about setting up a shared namespace, and for information about setting
up to share a namespace between InfoPrint Manager for AIX
, InfoPrint Manager for Linux
, and InfoPrint Manager for Windows
A primary server is simply the machine where the namespace file system is physically installed. Secondary servers are not less important; they just run on a machine where the namespace is NFS mounted or otherswise remotely accessed.
The main objects in the printing system are stored in the namespace. These include servers, destinations (both logical and actual), and queues. These types of objects must have unique names in the InfoPrint Manager system since only one entry for a given name for a type of object is allowed.
