How can the directory used for system information be controlled in Enterprise Server ?

Problem :

How can the directory used for system information in ES be controlled ?

Resolution :

The directory used for the system information, is controlled using the environment variable CASROOT.    The value used must be the full directory path.

By default this is defined in the  cas.cfg  file, which can be found in the  $COBDIR/etc/cat  directory.

This is called the Transaction System Global/Region Configuration File.

The contents of this file is as follows:
###########################################################
### Transaction System Global/Region Configuration File ###
###########################################################
### global only directives ###
USESYSCON=Y
AUTHPGMS=
CASROOT=/var/mfcobol/es
### other directives ###
###########################################################

If the value of the CASROOT variable is changed, it MUST point to a directory that already exists.

Enterprise Server will create a directory with the same name as the server/region, under the directory defined.

If this file is amended, the MFDS process must be stopped and re-started to pick up the changes made.
