After you finish installing Ricoh ProcessDirector, you complete post-installation tasks.
The installer creates files with the default group ownership set to the Ricoh ProcessDirector group (aiwgrp1 is the default). Any user who is in the Ricoh ProcessDirector group can access files that Ricoh ProcessDirector creates:
If you have users with AIX system user IDs who need to work directly with Ricoh ProcessDirector files or submit files to hot folders, you must add their user IDs to the Ricoh ProcessDirector group. Be sure to use that group as an additional group for your users, not as their
If you create another group to own directories that Ricoh ProcessDirector input devices use, you must add the Ricoh ProcessDirector system user (aiw1 is the default) to the new group.
If you have finished installing Ricoh ProcessDirector and want to verify the installation, use this procedure to enable the Sample printer,
submit a test job to the HotFolderPDF input device, and process the job.
Ricoh ProcessDirector provides maintenance scripts that must be run regularly on the primary computer to
improve performance. By default, Ricoh ProcessDirector runs these scripts every day at midnight. You can change the time or frequency, and
you can run your own maintenance scripts at the same time.
When you install a new version of Ricoh ProcessDirector, the installer automatically adds new sample control files to the /aiw/aiw1/samples directory and copies them to your control files directory, /aiw/aiw1/control_files. It does not overwrite any of your customized control files in /aiw/aiw1/control_files. You can use the copyConfigurationFiles script to install the default control files
or to overwrite your customized control files.
To reuse objects from another Ricoh ProcessDirector system, you can use the other system to export them. On this Ricoh ProcessDirector system, you can import the objects rather than recreating them manually.
If you are migrating from InfoPrint Manager and you use the pdpr command to submit jobs, you can install the Ricoh ProcessDirectorpdpr script on the computers that submit jobs and use the same command to send jobs to
Failover servers are designed to take over processing in the event that your Ricoh ProcessDirector production server suffers a catastrophic event. Use this procedure to move processing
between the Ricoh ProcessDirector production server and the failover server.
