Connecting to a Host Running DATABridge

Before you can access DMSII data, you must connect to the host where the DATABridge Server Accessory is installed. You can also connect to another installation of Enterprise Server.

To connect to the Server Accessory or Enterprise Server

  1. From the DATABridge Enterprise window, click the DBServer button global dbenterprise linked file template.

    The DATABridge Server Host and Port Number dialog box appears.

    global dbenterprise linked file template

  2. Type the host name or IP address for the remote mainframe on which the Server Accessory is running, or for a PC on which Enterprise Server is installed. If the server is visible in Windows, click the Browse button to navigate to it.
  3. Type the port number. This is set by the TCP/IP port parameter within the Server Accessory configuration file. For Enterprise Server, the port is set during installation, but can be changed later in the DATABridge Director dialog box.
  4. Click OK.

    If the connection is successful, the new server appears in the left pane in the DATABridge Enterprise window. From there, you can view DMSII properties (of data sets, data item, and so on) for any source in the Server Accessory parameter file, and for Enterprise Server sources.

    If MCP disks don't appear in the Enterprise Server window, see Detecting Visible MCP Disks.
