[CLOSED] Looking for configuration file that renames "EDASERVE"

I am working on an environment unfamiliar to me. There are a lot of reporting servers, some are names EDASERVE, some are not. WHere is the name set? I assume it's not on the reporting server itself, but on the client server. I'm looking for the configuration file that does this.

Hi Francis,
Isn't it in ODIN.cfg? We have the same...
EDASERVE is my local, there there are a bunch of different servers for DEV/IT/UAT/PROD

Tom, thanks for suggesting that, but I don't see the name.

In the Client Admin Console, Under Reporting Servers > Remote Services, I see three servers, one is named SERV1. When I navigate to the reporting server console for this server and view odin.cfg, I don't see the name SERV1 specified, I don't see it in any of the configuration files.

Hey Francis,
UGH, I do see them in mine. On the Reporting Server: Workspace --> Configuration File --> Communication - odin.cfg.
Maybe that file is generated by another setup.

Maybe Sir Chuck will chime in. Not my area of expertise...Sorry!

The reporting servers can be defined from different perspectives.

From the web client
From the Reporting server

With the Web Client, a report request can be directed to different reporting servers

With the Reporting Servers, a report can get data from a different reporting server (hub-sub).

All are defined in an odin.cfg file, the web clients is under the WebFOCUSxx directory structure, the reporting servers is under srvxx/wfs/etc

Where are the client, reporting server and report caster installed, i.e., on the same machine or separate machines? Here, we’ve got the client installed on SERVER_A and report caster and reporting server on SERVER_B. If I add a server via Admin Console > Reporting Servers > Remote Services I also need to copy WebFOCUSxx/client/wfc/etc/odin.cfg from SERVER_A to the same name directory on SERVER_B so that report caster “knows” about the newly defined server. Viewing odin.cfg from the reporting server webconsole, you’re looking at srvxx/wfs/etc/odin.cfg as Waz has stated.

Thanks for the clarification - I was not aware that there are odin.cfg files on the reporting server as well as the client server. You do see the reporting servers in the Remote Services section of the Client Admin Console, but the odin.cfg file is not available to edit.

I assume the only way to look at the odin.cfg file on the client server is by logging into it.

Reporting Server:
The Reporting Server can have many defined data services. there is a DEFAULT data service that comes configured with the installation of the product. You can create additional data services as need and you give each one a unique service (NAME).

WebFOCUS Client:
The WebFOCUS Client can connects to a remote server. It comes configured with a default remote server call EDASERVE. If you look the setting for this Remote server you will see that the CLIENT property is not set. This means that this Remote Server will connect to the default data service running on the HOST and PORT specified. If you have multiple data services running you provide the CLIENT property with the name of the data service you want to connection to. An example is where my have your ondemand reports run on EDASERVE and your Report Caster Reports, InfoAssist Reports, or another application say for another department run on a different data service. This will all you to setup different setting for each data service like the maximum number of concurrent requests, memory limits, queue size, different profiles for one application vs another application. different profiles per application is cleaner and you can put the data connections for that application in that applications profile.

Report Caster:
Also can be configure for multiple remote server that can point to a specific data service on the Reporting Server(s).

Hope this helps.

Where you see Remote Services, can you select a node to modify it ?, or create a new one ?

To view the file on disk, yes, you would have to log on to your server. You can't pull it up in a GUI like you can on the reporting server. You should see the buttons that Waz has referenced in Remote Services.

The actual file resides in ..\ibi\WebFOCUS81\client\wfc\etc\odin.cfg if you want to see it there.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

At the moment I don't have access to the folder on the client server.

I guess no one ever asked for a New Feature Request to be able to view and edit the file from the Administration console, like we can do with site.wfs.

Do you have access to Remote Services in the Administration Console ?

This is where you add or modify the entries.

Thanks Waz. I was hoping to see the file instead of each remote service individually.

May be the only option if you don't have access.
