Administration Guide : Xinet Configuration

Xinet Configuration
Before you and your clients can begin using Xinet, you have to set up your Web server to work with Xinet, and then set up Xinet so that it understands how you want each of your customers to interact with it. This chapter introduces the second group of tasks.
The following topics are provided in this section:
You'll use the Xinet administration interface to configure volumes on your Web site for local and Web clients, or in other words, to give your customers access to files on the server via the Web.
Basic administration steps
Basic administration is carried out using the Xinet administrative GUI. You must be authenticated to the Web server with administrative privileges to use it. Once you have authenticated yourself as the administrator, you’ll go on to:
[optional] Configure database activities
[optional] Configure Triggers and Actions
[optional] Set up the server to optimize print production
This chapter covers some of the things you need to know before you begin any of these.
Please remember that each Xinet administration page displays a Help button. If you need definitions for any of the terms used or explanations about what the GUI does, click on the Help button.
To begin administrative tasks, authenticate yourself as nativeadmin so that you will have full administrative privileges. Please see Authenticating as the administrator for details. Then, keep in mind the conventions the following sections describe.
Making GUI selections
Figure 0-1 illustrates several tenets of the Xinet administration GUI. Across the top, there are three tiers of tabs.The top tier is fixed and represents the major areas of Xinet administration. The tabs in the lower two tiers, however, change according to the top-level tab that has been selected.
You’ll need various tabs as you set up the Xinet at your site, and at times will move back and forth between them. They have, however, been arranged so that, in general, you’ll move from left to right across the tabs as you work when setting up a new system.
Figure 0-1 displays a a two-tiered pop-up menu. You will encounter this two-tiered pop-up system whenever a pop-up list grows longer than 29 entries. Its purpose is to speed up your selection process, saving you from having to scroll through too many list entries at one time.
In two-tiered mode, the upper pop-up specifies an alphanumeric range. In Figure 0-1, it specifies the users listed between juno and zander. The lower pop-up specifies the particular, selected user within that range, tito, in our example. Also note that within these pop-up lists Groups come after the list of Users. Groups are also arranged in alphanumeric order.

Warning indicators
Colored background cells in the Summary pages indicate a lack of disk space; generally, the worse the situation, the more intense the color. The issue may pertain to published System Volumes or to the database.  When you see such colors, check disk space usage on the system to see if more space can be allocated. Figure 0-2 and Figure 0-3 show examples of warnings:
