Documentation for Network Client Install does not cover local drive mapping parameter

Abstract:Documentation for Network Client Install does not include information about the 'Local mapping for the Server's LANSA root directory' install option
Submitted By:LANSA Technical Support

Description:

Network Client installation is covered in Scenario 3 in the LANSA Version 11 Install Planner. However an issue has been found where the V11.0 Documentation for Network Client Install does not adequately cover the 'Local mapping for the Server's LANSA root directory' install option, which is specified on the following screen.

Network Install Details screen

Correction:

In order to connect a Network Client to a Server PC, the Server's LANSA Root Directory must be mapped to a network drive on the client PC. For example, you might map your L: drive to \\MyNetworkServer\LANSA\.

To do this, the server must enable sharing on the LANSA Root Directory, and the Network Clients should have full read/write access to this folder.

In the example above, you would specify the Local Mapping as L: on the Network Install Details screen

Note:

If you have an existing V10.0 Network Client Installation there is no need to install V11.0 on each of the client PCs. As a new feature in V11.0, if the server is upgraded to 11.0 then the Network Clients will automatically be upgraded to V11.0 the first time they connect to the V11.0 server.
