Running Enterprise Server in Browse Mode

To view or configure DATABridge Enterprise, you must run Enterprise Server in browse mode. In Windows, choose Start > All Programs > Attachmate DATABridge 6.2 > DATABridge Enterprise > Configure Enterprise. The left side of the window shows known host machines and the right side shows the Enterprise Server sources.

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

To connect to DATABridge Server 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 DBServer is running, or for a PC on which another copy of 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 DBServer 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 DBServer parameter file, and for Enterprise Server sources.

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