The program needed to configure your neighborhood is called SYNC. This program is installed in the NonStop subvol you defined for a particular instance of Web ViewPoint Enterprise functions of the SYNC program are:

  1. Create Neighborhood
  2. Join a Neighborhood
  3. Leave a Neighborhood
  4. Synchronize
  • You can create a new Neighborhood on any Resident that you want in that Neighborhood.
  • When you join a Neighborhood when prompted for “Enter the System Name of an existing Resident”, make sure you input an existing Resident, not the Node Name you are on. Example:
  1. On PROD1 node, I create Neighborhood “WEST”; when this is done PROD1 is automatically a Resident in Neighborhood “WEST”.
  2. If I want the LA Node to join Neighborhood “WEST”, then I would logon to LA, run the SYNC program and input PROD1 when prompted for an existing System Name.
  • File used for storing the NR configuration is:

NonStop – IPLIST

  • If you ever change the IP address of a Resident (i.e. NonStop Node) you will need to use the SYNC program to “Leave Neighborhood” and then use the “Join a Neighborhood” to establish the new IP address in the NR configuration files. The same goes for changes to the Port number in the Web ViewPoint Enterprise installation UGATCONF file.

Consider the following example:

  1. Neighborhood TEST1 has NSPROD and YOSPRD defined as Residents.
  • NSPROD WVP Instance is running from NSPROD.$DATA1.WVPTEST1 with unique process names. (Note: IPLIST in subvol WVPTEST1 has the Neighborhood details.)
  • YOSPRD WVP Instance is running from YOSPRD.$DATA4.WVPTEST1 with unique process names
  1. Neighborhood QATST on NSPROD has only NSPROD defined as a Resident.
  • NSPROD WVP Instance is running from NSPROD.$DATA2.WVPQATST with unique process names
