Share Settings with Domain Users
As an administrator, you can make definitions available to other Reflection X Advantage domain users. Only an administrator can make definitions public, and users cannot edit these definitions.
When you make a definition public, all of the associated components for that definition must also be public. For example, if you make an X client definition public, a session definition referenced in the client definition must also be public, as must any shared font collection or color scheme. If you are setting up a public Secure Shell client definition, you can make the host key public as well.
To create a public definition
- Log on to X Manager for Domains with your Reflection X Advantage domain administrator account.
- Configure and test the definitions you want to share.
- If you are using a client definition that includes a telnet, rexec, or rlogin, clear any saved passwords before you make the definition public.
- Log on to the X Administrative Console with your domain administrator account.
- From the Domain Definition tab, right-click a definition and select Make Public.
- Make all associated definitions public in the same way. For example, any session definitions used in your client definitions must be made public. If you make a launch group public, make all clients in that group public. If your session uses any non-default color schemes or font collections, also make these public.
- To test your changes, log on to X Manager for Domains with an alternate Reflection X Advantage account. Logging on with a different account allows you to see and test your changes as a regular user. Start your public definitions to confirm that you have shared all required components.
