Using a Configuration File to Define the Metadata (IOM Bridge)

If you do not use LDAP as the metadata repository, you can create a flat configuration file that contains the object definitions for an IOM Bridge server configuration. The configuration file must then be installed on the server and on each client machine.

Note: If your configuration requires more than one or two servers, or if multiple clients will be using the servers, we strongly recommend the use of LDAP as a central metadata repository. The use of LDAP also gives you the ability to use access control lists to control access to the servers in your enterprise.

To define an IOM Bridge server configuration using a configuration file:

  1. Use a text editor to code the configuration file. At a minimum, the file must define a server object and a spawner object. You can also define one more more SAS login objects, logical name objects, and/or dependent spawner objects. To create the file:

  2. Save the file with a name of your choice (for example, objspawn.cfg).

  3. Install the file on the server machine and on each client machine.

You can now start the spawner. For instructions, refer to Starting the Spawner.
