Making the code directory available to remote client workstations (Windows)

To load the required code from the code server, each of the remote client workstations must be able to read the directory where IBM® Data Server Driver Package is installed.

Before you begin

You must install IBM Data Server Driver Package on the code server.

About this task

The following procedure uses Windows 7 as an example to show how to make the code directory available to all remote client workstations (in read mode).


To make the code directory available to all remote client workstations:

  1. On the code server, start Windows Explorer.
  2. Right-click the directory on the code server that will be used to serve client workstations.
    For this example, right-click the C:\Program Files\IBM\IBM DATA SERVER DRIVER directory to set up the share.
  3. Select File > Properties from the menu.
  4. Click the Sharing tab.
  5. Click the Advanced Sharing button.
  6. Select the Share this folder check box.
  7. In the Share Name field, enter a share name that is eight characters or fewer.
    For example, enter DSDRVRSV.
  8. Provide read access to the code directory to all client users:
    1. Click Permissions.
      The Share Permissions window opens.
    2. In the Group or Users Name list, highlight the Everyone group.
      Note: You can give access to the Everyone group, to a group that you have specifically defined for remote client users, or to individual remote client users.
    3. Select Read.
    4. Click OK until all windows are closed.

What to do next

Next, map a network drive from each remote client workstation to the network share on the code server.
