Adding Readers and Groups

Adding Groups

To add a reader group to RMC3 data collection, you need to edit both the “baangroups” file (on the Baan server) as well as the “rmc3.config” file (on the system where RMC3 Local is running). Add the required group(s) to each file, and assign readers to the new group(s) in the rmc3.config file. Then restart both Local and Host/DDC Server for the appropriate thread.
 
Notes: threads, groups and readers are case-sensitive, and group names must be 9 characters or fewer. Also, you cannot have the same group defined in more than one Local on the same thread. No more than 64 readers may be defined per RMC3 Local.
 
  1. On the Baan server, in the rmc3\host directory, edit the “baangroups” file, adding the new group (in this case we are adding the group named “NewGroup” to the “t100b” thread):
 
#thread t100a
#group Group0001
 
#thread t100b
#group RMCtime
#group Prod
#group NewGroup
 
  1. On the system where RMC3 Local is running, in the rmc3\local directory, edit the “rmc3.config” file, adding the same group. Assign any new readers to the group:
 
#thread t100a
#group Group0001
   id    0001
   id    0002
   id    0003
 
#thread t100b
#group RMCtime
   id    R001
   id    R002
#group Prod
   id    P001
#group NewGroup
   id    NEW1
   id    NEW2
   id    NEW3
 
  1. After saving the changes to the files, restart DDC Server manually (from the Baan Start DDC Server session), and re-start RMC3 Local for that thread. When starting DDC Server, you will need to specify the DDC Menu to use for the new group. Remember to “activate” any groups that you wish to use, when starting DDC Server.
 
NOTE: Group names must match exactly between RMC3 Host and RMC3 Local.
 
Adding Readers
 
If you just want to add readers to an already existing group, you only need to edit the “rmc3.config” file (see step 2, above) and restart RMC3 Local for that thread.
