Managing the Informix Dynamic Server

eG Enterprise can automatically discover the Informix Dynamic Server in the environment and also lets you to add the FTP Server component if the server is not auto-discovered. The following steps explain you how to manage the server that is auto-discovered using the eG administrative interface.

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. If the Informix Dynamic Server is already discovered, then directly proceed towards managing it using the COMPONENTS – MANAGE/UNMANAGE page.
  3. However, if it is yet to be discovered, then run discovery (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discover) to get it discovered or add the component manually using the COMPONENTSpage (Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify). Remember that components manually added are managed automatically. Discovered components, however, are managed using the COMPONENTS – MANAGE / UNMANAGE page.
  4. To manage the Informix Dynamic Server component that is auto-discovered, follow the Infrastructure -> Components -> Manage/Unmanage in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  5. In the COMPONENTS – MANAGE/UNMANAGE page that appears next, select Informix as the Component type. The auto-discovered components will be displayed under the Unmanaged Components section.
  6. Next, choose the component to be managed. Figure 1 and Figure 2 clearly illustrate the process of managing the Informix Dynamic Server.
