This task enables clients to connect to Historical Server. Historical Server clients are users who create recording sessions or playback sessions. Each client machine must be configured appropriately.
The configuration task differs depending on whether you rely on sql.ini files or a directory service for making client/server connections.
If you are relying on sql.ini files for making client/server connections, then update all of the sql.ini files used by Historical Server clients. The client sql.ini files must contain entries for:
The Monitor Server associated with each Adaptive Server listed.
Any Adaptive Server that you want Historical Server to collect data for.
Use dsedit to add entries to a sql.ini file. To add these entries, you must know the following information:
Historical Server name.
Monitor Server and Adaptive Server names to which you want Historical Server to connect.
Port numbers or network addresses assigned to these servers when they were configured.
If you need to research this information, use dsedit on the machine where a server is configured to examine the appropriate sql.ini file.
If you are relying on a directory service for making client/server connections, then make sure that the libtcl.cfg file on all Historical Server client machines points to the appropriate directory service.
Use ocscfg to check and update libtcl.cfg files.
