Preparing a Shared Folder for server.conf on a UNIX System

  1. Create a shared folder on a file server.

  2. Mount the shared folder to each machine that is to host PPM.

  3. If you plan to host multiple PPM Server clusters under the same account on a single machine, do the following. Otherwise, proceed to step 4.

    1. Using a text editor, create a file named "ppm_server_conf.env", and add to it the following text:

      export PPM_SERVER_CONF_DIR=//<IP_Address>/<Shared_Folder>
    2. Save the file to the <PPM_Home> directory and close the file.

  4. In the $HOME/.profile file of the account that is to run PPM, add the following line:

    export PPM_SERVER_CONF_DIR=<Mount_Point>/<Shared_Folder>
