Checklist for application server and secondary server tasks

  Task
  Preparing the primary computer

Before you install any application servers or Secondary Server features, you must export the /aiw file system and create an application/secondary server object in Ricoh ProcessDirector. If you plan to use NFS on an application server, you must also verify that an NFS server is installed and started on the primary computer. If you plan to use Samba on an application server, you do not need to install NFS.

  Installing on Linux systems

Use this procedure to install a Linux application server or secondary server.

  Installing the AIX operating system

Use this procedure to install an AIX application server or secondary server.

  Preparing a Windows application server

When you install an application server on Windows, you are required to mount the /aiw file system from the primary computer so the Windows application server has write access to the /aiw file system as the system user (aiw1 is the default).

  Installing application servers on Windows computers

After you have completed the prerequisite steps, you can install an application server on a Windows system in your network.

  Configuring an application server to run as a service

Application servers can be configured to run as Windows services. Windows services can be set up to start automatically when a user logs in to the system.
