Pinned topic Regarding Attachments

‏2012-12-24T14:45:15Z |
Hi Experts,

Is there any chance of configuring the DOCLINKS folders in multiple servers.

Ex: I have declared the mxe.doclink.doctypes.defpath property as C:\DOCLINKS.
This directory is present in the server where the Maximo/WebSphere are installed.

I want to configure the same folder for different machines.
And should be able to upload the images into one machine/server and .doc files into other machine.
Is it possible.

If it is not possible please let me know what is the difference between mxe.doclink.path01 and mxe.doclink.path02 properties?
Please explain with an example.

Thanks,
Srinivas

    There might be another approach:

    set up the machine/machines that you docs are going to reside on with a webserver (apache or IIS)

    Now you have something like this
    Images are on http://docServer1:80/Images
    Docs are on http://docServer2:80/Docs

    Now, the Maximo instances all point there, regardless of the machine they are deployed on.

    This is what we had to do in our production environment as well. We created mount points on all 4 of our servers to point to the same folder. That way all of the documents uploaded to the same server regardless of which JVM they were connected to.

    I only use the docpath1, and then manage using the default filepath in the GUI.

    Hello,

    I have a question on attachments in maximo 7.5.

    I was able to configure the attachement and also able to attach and open the files from 'attachments' but when i try to open file from select action->attach libraby/folder->manage Library i am getting an error 'cannot find "file///e:doclinks/default/xxx.docx make sure the path or interner connection is correct'. Please let me know if you have any suggestion.

    Thanks,

    You might check your slash directions. Mine look like this: \\srv50730\MAXDOCS\EHS Compliance

    The slashes in urlpath has backward slash ('\') but when you clink on url, it changes to forward slash in the address bar. Check it out.

    Hi Shrurthi,

    You might not configured the Default path in Maximo properties.

    If the Property of mxe.doclink.doctypes.defpath is C:\DOCLINKS

    The socond property mxe.doclink.path01 Should be like C<PATH>\DOCLINKS= http://Hostname

    As per my knowledge the second property might be configured incorrectly Please check that.

    After configuring these things the you have to modify the file path in Manage Folder. ( select Action --> Attachment Library/folders -->Manage folder). You have to make sure that the file path mentioned there correctly.
    Thanks,
