Defining application and secondary servers

After you configure NFS, Samba, or your preferred protocol, you must create the application or secondary server in Ricoh ProcessDirector.

To define the application or secondary server:

  1. Open a Web browser and enter http://hostname:15080/pd in the address bar replacing, hostname with the host name of the primary computer.
  2. Log in to Ricoh ProcessDirector.
  3. Click the Administration tab.
  4. In the left pane, click ObjectsServers.
  5. On the Servers page, click Add.
  6. Specify a server name and the IP address or host name for the application/secondary computer. As an option, specify a description and values for the other properties of the server.
  7. Choose an option for the In general server pool field.
    Servers in the general server pool can run any step defined in any workflow.

    For a secondary server that runs on an AIX or Linux system, you can specify either Yes or No. If you want the secondary server to run only specific steps, specify No in this field and then Tune each step template that you want to run on the secondary server.

    For an application server that runs on Windows, specify No for In general server pool.

    • If any external steps send jobs to the application server, you must tune the step template appropriately. For information about how to tune the step template, click Help from the top task bar of the Ricoh ProcessDirector user interface to see the information center.
  8. Click OK.
  9. In the left pane, click ObjectsServers.
  10. Select the server and then click Enable.
