To Configure Workstations to Use with Distributed Computing
* This procedure should be performed by your System Administrator.
After installing Pro/ENGINEER release 2000i2 or later, your system administrator must configure workstations to use with distributed computing by performing the following tasks:
1. From the available workstations at your company, choose one that can participate in distributed computing sessions.
2. Execute the dcadsetup command script on each of the participating workstations. Running this script starts a daemon process that is required for distributed computing. No other setup task is required.
3. To shut down the daemon process and thus disable a workstation from participating in distributed computing sessions, the dcadshutdown command script is available.
4. Optionally, your system administrator may register the dcadsetup command within the boot script of a workstation to ensure that the workstation is always enabled after shutdown and restart procedures.
