To Set Up a Gateway Service to Publish Datasource Lists from One or More Servers
- Install ProjectWise Gateway Service on a computer that your ProjectWise clients can access (a computer on the same subnet, if possible).
- In any text editor, open the ProjectWise Gateway Service's dmskrnl.cfg file located in the ...\ProjectWise\Bin directory.
Find and make sure the lines Databases=db0 is uncommented.
To uncomment a line, remove the semicolon from the beginning of the line.
- Find and make sure the line ConnectionSrv=1 is also uncommented.
Below the line ConnectionSrv=1 you will see several commented out settings that enable datasource list publishing. To enable publishing of just one server's datasource list, configure the following section of lines:
Databases=db0 [db0] DsServer=1 Server=INTSERVER
Though it is actually further up in the dmskrnl.cfg file, the line Databases=db0 is shown in this location to give context.
The line Server= is where you specify the name or IP address of the ProjectWise Design Integration Server computer. In this example, we are assuming the ProjectWise Design Integration Server computer name is INTSERVER.
For each additional server you want to publish, add another entry to the Databases= line (db1, db2, and so on), and then add a corresponding server section below it. For example, the following section enables the publishing of three ProjectWise Design Integration Server's datasource lists:
Databases=db0,db1,db2 [db0] DsServer=1 Server=INTSERVER [db1] DsServer=1 Server=INTSERVER2 [db2] DsServer=1 Server=INTSERVER3
