A Web ViewPoint Enterprise Neighborhood is considered to be a collection of Web ViewPoint Enterprise Residents that are on the same network. The following is assumed to be true of a Neighborhood:

  1. There cannot be two Residents belonging to the same System on the same Neighborhood.

Example:

SYSA    $A.B       1.1.1.1: 2500       2501
SYSA    $C.D       1.1.1.3: 2500       2501

 The above Neighborhood cannot exist since it has two Residents from the same system.

  1. A given Resident can belong only to one Neighborhood.

Example:          Neighborhood 1:
SYSA     $A.B       1.1.1.1: 2500       2501
SYSB     $A.B       1.1.1.2: 2500       2501

Neighborhood 2:
SYSA    $A.B       1.1.1.1: 2500       2501
SYSC    $A.B       1.1.1.3: 2500       2501

Neighborhoods 1 and 2 both have the same Resident of System A which is not permitted.

Each Resident installed will include a synchronization program called Sync that will be used by the Resident to join/leave a Neighborhood as well as synchronize the entire Neighborhood that the Resident is part of.

Also, during installation, the main Central Router database called IPLIST will be created in the Resident’s home volume. Once the Resident has been initiated into the Neighborhood, this database will store records for all Residents of the neighborhood which include the System name, Volume-Subvolume, IP address and Port number for the Resident.

Alternatively, you can make use of IPCOPY program which allows users to create a neighborhood.
