Configuring access to files on the computer that runs the inserter controller
To access the file system of an inserter controller, which resides on a computer other than the one where RICOH ProcessDirector is installed, you give RICOH ProcessDirector access to a directory on that computer by mapping the directory as a network drive. Every time RICOH ProcessDirector starts, it needs to connect to the mapped drive.
- If the RICOH ProcessDirector primary server is installed on an AIX or Linux computer, set up the shared drive so that it is always mounted when the primary server starts.
- If the RICOH ProcessDirector primary server is installed on a Windows computer:
- Set up the shared drive from the inserter controller rather than from the primary server.
- Edit the
C:\aiw\aiw1\bin\mountDrives.batfile, which ensures that the mapped network drive is mounted whenever RICOH ProcessDirector starts.For information about creating and editing the BAT file, see the topic about mapping network drives in the RICOH ProcessDirector information center.
