1 Introduction
This manual describes the installation of Type 3159 ENVOXr
Server P5.0 and Type SW3311 Control Desktop P5.0.
ENVOX Server P5.0 is a server-only release which runs on an
Windows NT platform. It requires Control Desktop P5.0 for the
user interface.
Control Desktop P5.0 is the third in a series of Control
Desktop releases. The previous two releases of Control
Desktop are P1.0 and P2.0. There are no P3.0 or P4.0
releases.
1.1
Intended Audience
This manual is intended for persons generally considered to
be expert users. They must be familiar with the ENVOX
configuration system and its Control Desktop user interface,
the SYBASE dataserver system, and the Windows NT
operating system.
1.2
Software Version This Manual Supports
This manual applies only to ENVOX Server P5.0 and Control
Desktop P5.0. For manuals applicable to previous ENVOX
and Control Desktop versions, see the Document History list
at the back of this manual.
Databases from ENVOX P4.0, P4.0.1, and P4.0.2 can be
transferred directly to ENVOX P5.0 via the PDX utility. When
a PDX file is loaded into ENVOX P5.0 Server, it will be
automatically upgraded for use with Control Desktop P5.0.

ENVOX Server P5.0 is accessible through Control
Desktop P5.0. The SYBASE APT forms interface of
previous ENVOX versions has been removed.
Both ENVOX Server and Control Desktop administration
is accessed through a a menu selection in Control
Desktop. Administration is divided between client
administration and server administration. Password
access is required.
ENVOX P5.0 operates on a SYBASE 11 SQL Server. With
this server, installation and upgrade procedures for
Client-Server systems use the Portable Database Transfer
(PDX) utility to improve the installation and upgrade
process.
Display Designer lets you develop console displays
through graphical methods from the Control Desktop
interface. It can also be installed as a standalone module.
Logic Editor allows you to write controller FST programs
through the Control Desktop interface in a similar manner
to the Language Editor used in previous versions of
ENVOX software.
The LCP FST item can be configured using a standard
item detail screen format.
In the Operations Step tab, you can invoke the Logic
Editor window via menu selection (Data --> Edit Step).
You can also access the window by double-clicking the
mouse on a valid step name and by using the context
menu when positioned on a valid step name.

2. Shut down any programs that are running (you may leave
a Web Browser open to view installation instructions). At
any point during the installation process, you can press
the Ctrl Esc key combination to display the Windows NT
Start menu, so that you can switch to other programs.
3. Put the ENVOX Server and Control Desktop P5.0
Installation CD-ROM in the drive. It should autorun the
setup.exe file in the ControlDesktop directory. This
displays the Installation — Selection screen.
Note ... CHIP Kernal must already be installed. If your
server machine does not have CHIP Kernel
installed, install it before installing ENVOX Server
and Control Desktop. See Section 4, Install CHIP
Kernel.
4. Use the Selection drop-down list to pick the required
installation option. Refer to subsection 2.3, Choosing Your

6. The sequence of screens displayed depends on the
option that you select and the current state of your
workstation. Refer to the help for the current option by
clicking on the Help button for details. If you are doing a
reinstall or installing a second component, some screens
will not be displayed because the information was
obtained during the first install.
7. The Summary screen displays the information you have
entered. Check that it is correct. You can click Back to
change any of your entries. Click Finish to install the
software for the option you have chosen. Alternatively,
click Cancel if you want to abort the installation at any
point. While installation screens are displayed, no
software has been installed to your workstation.
8. Software installation is in two phases. During the first
phase the software is copied, progress is indicated on a
progress bar, and system parameters are modified.
Re-start the workstation when prompted to make these
effective.
9. After the restart, log in again using the same username
and password for the second part of the installation.
10. During the second phase, most of the installation options
run the ’Server Setup’ utility. Enter the ENVOX Sybase
and CDOS server details and ping the servers to validate
the connection details.
11. A second re-start is required at the end of installation to
save installed settings to the hard disk.
12. Complete any additional steps specific to the option you
have chosen.

Choosing Your Install Option
Use this section to choose which of the various ENVOX
Server and Control Desktop P5.0 installation options you
need on each workstation.
The following items can be installed:
J
CHIP Kernel
CHIP Kernel must be installed on the workstation before
you install Server, Client Server, CHIP Daemons, or
Emergency Download. CHIP installation is not an option
within the ENVOX Server and Control Desktop P5.0
installation program.
J
Client Server — ENVOX Server and Control Desktop
P5.0
This option combines the installation of client and server
software in a single option. This is the recommended
option for server installations even when the client
software will not normally be used.
J
Client — Control Desktop P5.0 client applications,
modules and utilities
When you choose ’Install Client’, then all of the Control
Desktop P5.0 modules and utilities required to configure a
PROVOXr system using an ENVOX P5.0 server are
installed to your workstation. This is the recommended
option for a client.
J
Server — ENVOX Server P5.0 applications, modules and
utilities
When you choose ’Install Server’, then all ENVOX P5.0
server applications and their support programs required to
configure a PROVOX system are installed to the server.
No client applications are installed. The workstation
cannot be used for standalone configuration. This
installation is suitable for a remote server machine.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)

Section 2 F Installation Overview
J
CDOS — Control Desktop Open Server custom install
CDOS, Open Client, Open Server and Emergency
download components are automatically installed to your
workstation. However, you may wish to use separate
workstations for Sybase server and CDOS if there will be
very heavy CDOS usage. Separate workstations will free
up processor resources on the Sybase server and give
CDOS a processor to itself. This option lets you install
Sybase server and CDOS on separate workstations. If
you move CDOS to a separate workstation, you should
move the CHIP Task Daemons to the same workstation.
J
Display Designer
Display Designer can be installed as a standalone
installation. Displays can be created and saved to file. You
need to copy these files to a machine with a full Client
installation to read them from file and save them to an
ENVOX database.
J
Emergency Download
This utility can be installed to any suitable workstation,
along with emergency download files, to provide a backup
download capability. This is a command prompt utility.
J
Excel Matrix
The Excel Matrix Add-in file and its associated files are
installed to the workstation, allowing off-line configuration
of Loops and Enhanced DCDs. Ensure that Microsoft
Excel is available and working on the workstation before
you use this installation option. Excel Matrix can be used
to efficiently configure large numbers of Loop and
Enhanced DCD points.
J
CHIP Daemons
CHIP Daemons are automatically installed to ENVOX
Server workstations. However, when a system has several
highways that are not connected under a PROVOX
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Installation Overview F Section 2
31
network on address 0, it is necessary to install CHIP
Daemons on a separate workstation. This option allows
the separate CHIP Daemon installation.
J
Diagnostics — Remote Diagnostics Web Server
applications
The ENVOX Server and Control Desktop Diagnostics Web
Server extensions software only needs to be installed on
ONE workstation in your network — a workstation running
a Web Server. Normally it will be your Windows NT system
administrator who installs this option. Once the
Diagnostics extensions have been installed on the Web
Server workstation, users on any other workstation that
has a Web browser can run Control Desktop Diagnostics.
A Web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Netscape
Navigator) is the only software required to display ENVOX
Server and Control Desktop Diagnostics.
Note ... If you intend to run the diagnostics server on the
same PC as your Sybase and CDOS servers then
a workstation with twin processors is
recommended.
J
User Manuals — User Manuals and Adobe Acrobat
Reader
The User Manuals are available in Adobe Acrobat format
(PDF files). Adobe Acrobat Reader v4.05 is also installed,
which is needed to view and print the user manuals.

Hardware Considerations
This section describes the hardware requirements and
recommendations that each ENVOX Server and Control
Desktop workstation requires.
Note ... If possible, use a new, clean machine for the server.
If this is not possible, format the hard disk(s) and
create the recommended partitions, to get a page
file of the correct size for the installed memory and
to give as much contiguous disk space as possible
to your databases.

Basic Hardware Requirements
All options of both ENVOX Server and Control Desktop client
run on Windows NT and require Intel Pentium II or Pentium III
processor-based computers (except User Manuals, which
require a Pentium I processor or greater). The computer
requirements depend on what combination of applications
and modules the machine is running, as shown in Table 2-1.
The figures given in the table represent the minimum
hardware specification that will result in systems with good
performance. They are not the absolute minimum required to
run the software. However, any workstation with a
specification less than that given in the table cannot be
expected to have “good” performance.

To install the Web-based Diagnostics to an existing Web Server requires a maximum of 12 Mbytes. This
amount is less if some of the required software has already been installed, for example, via a Control Desktop
install.
If you need to install a Web Server first, then the combined Windows NT Service Pack 4 or Service Pack 6,
Internet Explorer 5.0 and MS Personal Web Server together require a maximum of 110 Mbytes with the options
recommended in the installation instructions. Other Web Servers require different amounts.

Section 2 F Installation Overview
Figure 2-1.
Recommended Minimum Hardware Setup
This configuration is adequate for two or three users with
Diagnostics on the same machine, or for four or five users
without Diagnostics.
We recommend that the server has two disks: one for the
Windows NT system and program files (system disk), and one
for the databases. Also, if possible, partition the system disk
into two, and reserve one partition for transaction logs.
The memory shown is for a system with several users, and
permits a complete standalone installation of Client, Sybase
server, CDOS server, and Diagnostics web server, all on the
same machine.
Some form of backup device is required to archive the
configuration. There may already be an existing tape drive
available on the site network; if not, install a tape drive on the
server machine.

J
J
2.4.4
Use a machine with the fastest processor you can afford.
Use two or more processors. This will allow Sybase,
CDOS, and the Web server to work in parallel.
Alternatively, put Sybase, CDOS, and the Web server on
separate workstations.
Use three disks: one for the Windows NT System and
program files; another dedicated to database data
storage; and the third for transaction log logical devices.
Use high speed SCSI disc controllers.
If more than four users want concurrent access, use more
than 256 Mbytes.
Using Existing Hardware
On many sites, existing machines need to be used. If so, do
the following:
1. On the server machine, install or reinstall Windows NT 4.0
and Service Pack 6.
2. Format the disks and set up any necessary partitions. This
makes sure that database Logical Devices are created as
contiguous files.
3. On the client machine, deinstall Control Desktop P1.0 and
P2.0 (if present), and deinstall Control Desktop
Diagnostics. See Deinstall Control Desktop P1.0 or P2.0,
subsection 15.2.
4. Purge the Temp directory and the Recycle Bin, and
consider using a defragmentation utility.

Software Considerations
This section lists the software requirements you need to
consider before installation. In addition to these requirements,
also consider the upgrade issues explained in Upgrading,
Deinstalling, and Reinstalling, Section 15.
Bear in mind that the following file types and file names are
deleted from any location in the ’Frsi\Control DesktopP50’
path if you do a deinstall. Therefore, they should not be used
for files you may create. The deleted file types and names
are: *.bak, *.cfg, *.err, *.gid, *.ini, *.inp, *.log, log*.*, *.sts, *.vtf.
2.5.1
Basic Software Requirements
The following software requirements must be satisfied before
installing ENVOX Server P5.0 or Control Desktop P5.0 client.
J
J
J
J
J
Operating System — Windows NT 4.0 with service pack
4 or 6 is required.
Network Layer — The TCP/IP network layer must have
been installed by your network administrator.
Install User Privilege — All installations require NT
administrator privileges on the workstation being installed.
The administration privileges are required to install
Sybase Open Client and to set up ODBC drivers and data
sources. These items make the Control Desktop Start
menu icons available to all valid Windows NT user
accounts on the specific workstation. Use an appropriate
Machine User Account.
Microsoft Excel — If you intend to use the Excel Matrix
software, Microsoft Excel should be installed before you
use the Client, Client Server, or Excel Matrix install
options. You need either Office 97 or Office 2000.
Earlier versions of Control Desktop — These must be
deinstalled before you proceed with this installation.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
38
Section 2 F Installation Overview
J
2.5.2
Control Desktop P5.0 clients — There must be installed
on all workstations that are to use the ENVOX Server
P5.0.
Software Compatibility and Conflicts
If Sybase Open Client is installed on your workstation, it will
be upgraded to Sybase System 11. Ensure that any software
which you are using is compatible with Sybase System 11.
Control Desktop P1.0 and P2.0 must be deinstalled from your
computer using Start --> Settings --> Control Panel -->
Add/Remove Programs. Both of these earlier versions use
Sybase System 10. The name and location of the Sybase
ODBC driver is the same for both System 10 and System 11,
and the so concurrent installation of Control Desktop P5.0
with these earlier versions is not possible.
Installation of ENVOX Server P5.0 to a machine that currently
has a Sybase System 11 server installed is only supported if
the ENVOX Server installation did the installation. We
recommend that you use separate workstations for your
ENVOX Configuration Sybase server and any Sybase server
applications that you use. It is possible to add a user
database to the ENVOX Server P5.0 machine after
installation.
2.5.3
Incompatible Software
The following are known to be incompatible with ENVOX
Server and Control Desktop P5.0, and therefore you must
remove them before installation:

There are several issues for you to consider:
J
J
J
Upgrading ENVOX Databases — You need to create
ENVOX P4.0.x PDX dumps of your databases.
Deinstalling Control Desktop P1.0 or P2.0 — This must
be done before installing P5.0.
User created files and data — These can be stored and
then retrieved into P5.0.
For details on upgrading previous versions of ENVOX Server
and Control Desktop, see Upgrading, Deinstalling, and
Reinstalling, Section 15.

3 Administration Issues
Before you start installing ENVOXr Server and Control
Desktop P5.0 on your network and workstations, we
recommend you read this section. It deals with two main
issues:
J
J
Strategies — It is very important that you decide what
strategy you are going to implement for file access and
network-related issues before starting the installation
process. You can choose to provide file access based on
one of three methods: standalone client/server computer,
Windows NT domain, or Workgroups.
Accounts — ENVOX Server and Control Desktop P5.0
uses Windows NT accounts to control access to
workstations and operating system files for tasks such as
PDX and Import. In addition, access to ENVOX P5.0
databases is controlled at two levels through Server
Administration and Client Administration.
This section is aimed at system administrators who decide the
network strategy to be implemented and who carry out server
installations.
3.1
File Access by Users
During configuration work, users will create different types of
files (export files, PDX files, Display Designer files, files for
use with Microsoft Excel, and so on). Use of Windows NT
accounts will help in dealing with access by multiple people at
different client machines.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
42
Section 3 F Administration Issues
A standalone client/server workstation has both the ENVOX
Server and the Control Desktop client applications installed.
No file access issues exists because the files are stored on
the workstation’s disks.
However, if more than one client is installed on other
machines, then the issue of people using more than one
client to access files stored in a common place needs to be
handled. Directory sharing is a feature provided by Windows
NT for machines configured in either domains or workgroups.
The use of a domain can simplify the file access.
3.2
Picking a Strategy
Before you install ENVOX Server and Control Desktop, you
must choose a strategy for administering file access,
networking and account information. There are three
strategies you can choose from:
J
J
Standalone — Client/server workstation connected only
to the PROVOXr highway. This strategy is ideal in
situations where only one machine is currently (and in the
future will be available) for ENVOX Server and Control
Desktop. If you are likely to add more workstations, we
recommend you choose one of the other strategies.
Windows NT — A group of clients connected to a Client
Server or Server machine connected over a corporate
network. This has the benefits of:
V Simpler, centralized account and password
management which means that changes you make to
user accounts can be made once rather than on every
workstation. Users can be added, removed and their
privileges changed in an efficient manner.
V Maintenance of user access to shared folders is
simplified. Assignment is by user group. Any new user
added to a group is automatically granted access to all
shares assigned to that group.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Administration Issues F Section 3
J
43
Workgroups — A small group of Clients connected to
Client Server or Server machine over a peer to peer
network. This has the benefits of:
V A primary domain controller for Windows NT domain is
not required.
V File access to shared folders is possible, though
individual accounts need to be set up on each
workstation. New users are granted access to all file
shares they need on a per user basis.
Note ... Whichever strategy you choose, you must inform all
users of the strategy and of the ’Network Account
Parameters’ involved. Alternatively, as a system
administrator, you can choose to carry out all
installations yourself onto all server and client
machines.
To ensure that your system meets the necessary hardware
and software requirements for the installation, read Before
You Begin, subsection 2.2.
3.2.1
Standalone Strategy
This is the simplest possible strategy. The Client Server
workstation is connected only to the PROVOX highway. All of
the configuration files are on this standalone machine; for
example, Import/Export or PDX.
When all of the configuration files are on the standalone
workstation, any user can access any of the files because
they are all local.
A network link to the PROVOX HDL is required to
communicate with the PROVOX controllers.

Windows NT Domain Strategy
When a workstation is connected to a network with two or
more workstations, the best administration strategy is a
Windows NT Domain. A Windows NT Domain is a group of
clients connected to a Client Server or Server machine
connected over a corporate network. This strategy provides
the security that is usually required in a corporate network.
There must be at least one Windows NT Server installed as a
Primary Domain Controller, which is the machine that stores
the user account details. The Server workstation is connected
to the PROVOX highway. The configuration files (for example,
Import/Export or PDX), may be on a user’s workstation or on
network shares. Control Desktop users should be added to an
ENVOX users group that has access to all of these network
shares.
An ENVOX Daemons account must be defined and used in
the installation of both the server and the clients.
Table 3-2 shows the Network Account Parameters required
for the Windows NT Domain strategy.

The set up procedure required for a typical network is:

accounts to a single group; for example, ENVOX_Users.
2. Create a special ’ENVOX Daemons’ user for the ENVOX
Daemons and CHIP Services, and add this to the
ENVOX_Users group.
3. Set the password on this account so that it does not
timeout. Select the ’Password never expires’ check box
for this account.
This account will automatically acquire the privilege ’Log
on a Service’ when the first service using it is created.
4. Choose either that the network administrator will do the
installations, or ensure that the user account(s) for
ENVOX Server and Control Desktop installations have
administrator privileges on the relevant workstations.
3.2.3
Workgroups Strategy
Using workgroups as a network strategy is an alternative if a
Windows NT Domain is not possible. This strategy is a small
group of Clients connected to Client Server or Server
machine over a peer to peer network. The server machine is
connected to the PROVOX highway. The configuration files
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
46
Section 3 F Administration Issues
may be on a user’s workstation or on a network share on the
server machine.
Control Desktop users must be added to the local database of
their own PC and the server machine to gain access to these
shares. An ENVOX Daemons account must be defined and
used in the installation of both the server and the clients.
Security is rudimentary on this form of peer network. If the
username and password on one node is present in the local
database of another machine, then it is granted access;
otherwise, access is denied. ENVOX Server and Control
Desktop P5.0 will work in this environment provided that the
’ENVOX Daemons’ account is entered and maintained using
the same username and password on all of the workstations
in the ENVOX workgroup. Therefore, we do not recommend
this form of network.
Table 3-3 lists the ’Network Account Parameters’ required.

1. Create the ENVOX workgroup.
2. Add all of the ENVOX Server and Control Desktop user
accounts. Any user can then access files on the server;
however, they will have to maintain their passwords the
same on their own client and the ENVOX Server machine.

for this account.
This account will automatically acquire the privilege ’Log
on a Service’ when the first service using it is created.
5. Install ENVOX Server and Control Desktop using an
account with administrator privileges on the relevant
workstations.
The set up procedure required for each workstation in the
ENVOX workgroup is:
1. Create the ENVOX workgroup.
2. Add the Control Desktop user accounts for the user of the
workstation. On the server, all of the user accounts must
be added so that any user can access the server files.
3. Create a special ’ENVOX Daemons’ user for the ENVOX
Daemons and CHIP Services on all of the clients and the
server, using the same name and password.
4. Set the password on this account so that it does not
timeout.
This account will automatically acquire the privilege ’Log
on a Service’ when the first service using it is created.
5. Choose that either the network administrator will do the
installations, or ensure that the user account(s) for
ENVOX Server and Control Desktop installations have
administrator privileges on the relevant workstations.

Section 3 F Administration Issues
Network Account Parameters
As part of the installation process, both server and client
users need to know ’Network Account Parameters’ to carry
out server and client installations. These parameters depend
on the strategy you choose, and include the domain, account,
and CHIP details. We recommend that you publish this
information to all potential users of ENVOX Server and
Control Desktop P5.0.
3.3
Accounts and Logins
There are two main categories of account required for
administering ENVOX Server and Control Desktop:
J
J
Windows NT Accounts — These are the accounts
required to log into and use Windows NT, and comprise
ENVOX Daemons accounts and machine user accounts.
These accounts need to be created before the ENVOX
Server and Control Desktop installation.
ENVOX Server and Control Desktop User Account
Logins — These are the user accounts held on the
servers that enable users to log in to the ENVOX Server
and Control Desktop applications and modules and
access ENVOX P5.0 databases. The two utilities, ENVOX
Server Administration and Client Administration, control
the access.
The basic procedure required when defining accounts and
installing ENVOX Server and Control Desktop is:
1. Create Windows NT account.
2. Carry out a server installation (or client server installation)
using the Windows NT account. As part of this installation,
the ENVOX Server Administration account is created.
3. Create client accounts (logins) using the ENVOX Server
Administration utility, so that workstation client users can
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Administration Issues F Section 3
49
log in to Control Desktop client applications, modules, and
utilities.
Only system administrators (those who know the ’sa’
login) can access the ENVOX Server Administration utility
and create Control Desktop logins. You may choose to
create only a few ’project administrator’ logins, and let
these project administrators assign privileges to
themselves and their ’project engineers’. Project
administrators can use the Client Administration utility,
whereas project engineers cannot.
4. Allow users to carry out client installations on their
workstations.
3.3.1
Windows NT Accounts
Windows NT accounts are essential for users to access
Windows NT and govern the administration powers. They can
be divided into two types of account:
J
J
3.3.1.1
ENVOX Daemons account — Allows ENVOX daemons
(including task daemons) to do work on behalf of Control
Desktop clients. This account needs to have access to all
of the files used by any Control Desktop user on any client
or server node.
Machine user account — Provides access to a
workstation as administrator, so that ENVOX Server and
Control Desktop P5.0 can be installed just once per
workstation.
ENVOX Daemons Account
Control Desktop makes use of a set of services called the
ENVOX Daemons (for example, the ’ENVOX Client Task
Daemon’) to run utilities such as Import, Export and PDX.
These services may need to read or write files on the Local
Network. Hence, it is a requirement that the Daemon service
must be able to access the same set of Local Network files as
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
50
Section 3 F Administration Issues
any of the Control Desktop users of an ENVOX server. The
ENVOX Daemon Account must be created by the Network
administrator. Enter account details on the ENVOX Task
Daemons screen during client and server installations.
Use the ENVOX Daemon account details when you install
CHIP on the ENVOX Server machine as the CHIP account
details.
3.3.1.2
Machine User Accounts
The Control Desktop P5.0 release requires that the PC clients
to be installed using an account with Windows NT
administrator privileges. This makes the Control Desktop Start
menu launch icons available to all valid Windows NT user
accounts on the specific PC machine. The main advantages
of this approach are:
J
J
3.3.2
Multiple user accounts can access a single copy of
Control Desktop on each PC.
Each user account has its own specific Control Desktop
working area, and its own custom user environment.
ENVOX Server and Control Desktop User Login
Accounts
To access applications and modules within ENVOX Server
and Control Desktop, users need to have appropriate logins
(account). These are held on CDOS and Sybase servers.
The three types of logins are:
J
J
The ’sa’ login — Any user who knows the ’sa’ password
can log in as a system administrator, and can access the
ENVOX Server Administration utility to maintain all
ENVOX databases, and all user logins.
The ’project administrator’ login — Users with this login
can access the Client Administration utility to maintain
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Administration Issues F Section 3
51
databases they are assigned access to, and control
access to these databases by project engineers.
J
The ’project engineer’ login — Users with this login can
use Control Desktop client applications, modules, and
utilities, as determined by their login. Project engineers
cannot access Client Administration.
Figure 3-1 provides an overview of the Control Desktop P5.0
administration facilities.
Figure 3-1.
ENVOX Server and Control Desktop Administration Overview
The figure shows a Sybase server in which two ENVOX user
databases exist. A single Control Desktop Open Server
(CDOS) is shown, which is normally running on the same
machine as the Sybase server.
Three clients are shown, each of which has an administration
capability. The following sections outline the client’s

capabilities in the context of ENVOX Server and Control

Diagnostics User Administration
ENVOX Server Administration
The ’ENVOX Server and Control Desktop P5.0’ Server
Administration utility is installed with the Control Desktop
Client or Client Server install option. This utility enables
system administrators to implement system administration
tasks, such as backing up and creating databases, and it is
also used to create database users within the Sybase server.
The account is held on the Sybase server.
Access to this utility is restricted to system administrators, i.e.
those who know the ’sa’ password. Since they use this
application to create user logins on the server, they control
which users can access Client Administration. Each user is
assigned a role as either ’Project Engineer’ or ’Project
Administrator’ as appropriate. For Control Desktop use, it is
sufficient to create a User without administration privileges
and leave it up to the Project Administrator of each database
to make the user a Project Administrator. User access to
individual databases can be granted or revoked by the Project
Administrator of that database.
3.3.2.2
Control Desktop Client Administration
The ’ENVOX Server and Control Desktop’ Client
Administration utility allows team leaders to manage their
team’s access to the project data without having to know the
Sybase system administrator (’sa’) passwords used by Server
Administration. The account is held on the ENVOX database.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Administration Issues F Section 3
53
This approach means that the system administrator can do
the system administration tasks, such as backing up
databases, creating new databases, while the Project
Administrator within a database can do all of the project
specific tasks, such as enabling Audit Trail options, Switching
Verify mode On/Off, etc.
This utility has the concept of two user roles:
J
J
Project Administrator — Has the privilege to define
users roles and assign access privileges that determine
the Control Desktop features that the user will have; for
example, read mode or read/write mode. The Project
Administrator of a database can grant and revoke user
access to that database. Project Administrators can
access the Client Administration utility but not the ENVOX
Server Administration utility.
Project Engineer — The standard user role that is
assigned to typical Control Desktop configuration users. A
Project Engineer’s role can be customized to restrict
access to specific areas of the Control Desktop software.
Project Engineers cannot access the Client Administration
utility.
The system ensures that there is at least one Project
Administrator defined for each database.
The initial role that specific Control Desktop client users are
assigned is determined by their user privileges, as created by
ENVOX Server Administration.
3.3.2.3
Diagnostics User Administration
Security is always an issue on web sites. The diagnostics
module addresses this issue by having its own specific client
administration application. This is distinct from the Control
Desktop administration modules, which manage what are
essentially database user accounts.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
54
Section 3 F Administration Issues
Diagnostics does not use the configuration database, and
therefore it can apply a different concept of user. Basically,
Diagnostics administration has its own system administration
user, who then has the privilege to grant access to the
diagnostics web site for additional standard diagnostics users.
These standard users can be granted additional target device
access, as required.
The diagnostics system administrator role is granted by
supplying the CDOS ’ca’ administrator account password on
the diagnostics administrator login Web page.
Note ... It is possible to change the ’ca’ password from the
Diagnostics administrator Web pages. However, if
CDOS needs to be reinstalled at anytime, then the
’ca’ password must be set back to its default.
3.4
Licensing
Control Desktop licenses are tied to the server machine
where CDOS is installed. Following the installation of Control
Desktop, you have a 29-day grace period in which you can
use Control Desktop P5.0. On the 30th day after installation,
the temporary license expires and Control Desktop ceases to
function. Therefore, during this period you must use the
’Admin --> License Management --> Initial Registration’
menu option, to request licenses from your World Area
Response Center. The license menu options are accessible
and usable after the 29-day grace period.
If you have Control Desktop P1.0 or P2.0 installed and have
associated licenses, the above information still applies to you.
You need to upgrade your license to use the ENVOX P5.0
database server and to obtain Display Designer Licenses.

55
Multi-User Issues
ENVOX Server and Control Desktop P5.0 creates a multi-user
system. However, unlike ENVOX P4.0, it provides multi-item
processing, which can put a greater load on the server.
The number of users that the server can handle concurrently
depends primarily on the amount of memory available on the
server machine. The installation program automatically tunes
the “total memory” and the “number of user connections”
server configuration parameters as a proportion of the
memory available on your server workstation.
However, the number of concurrent users is also constrained
by other factors, such as CPU performance and number of
database connections. Control Desktop has been tested with
up to 8 ’fully loaded’ concurrent users. A fully loaded user is
one who is running Control Desktop, Control Designer and
one LCP Trace/Tune session.
Note ... As with any multi-user system, increasing the
number of users affects performance. If you expect
to have more than 4 concurrent users, you will
need a dedicated machine with specific features
intended to optimize server performance. For
example, you may add additional memory
(separate disks for system data, Sybase logs, and
Sybase data) and multiple processors. Refer to
Section 12, Tuning the System of the System
Managers Guide, SM:SW3159.

4.2
CHIP Environment Variables
Several environment variables must be defined during the
CHIP Kernel install, as follows:
J
CHIP_INTERFACE_HOSTNAME
The environment variable called
CHIP_INTERFACE_HOSTNAME defines the TCP/IP host
name or address of the Highway Data Link (HDL). If your
HDL host name is ’myHDL’, enter:
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
62
Section 4 F Install CHIP Kernel
variable: CHIP_INTERFACE_HOSTNAME
value: myHDL
If you do not have an HDL name, use its TCP/IP address;
for example:
variable: CHIP_INTERFACE_HOSTNAME
value: 155.177.5.200 (for example)
J
CHIP_SCOPE
If you want to change the security level to be used by the
CHIP software from the default of SameAccount (”tight
security”), create an environment variable called
CHIP_SCOPE.
variable: CHIP_SCOPE
value: SameAccount (tight access)
or: Group (group access)
or: Global (all access)
’SameAccount’ is the tightest form of security, and means
that only programs called by this account can use CHIP.
’Group’ is the usual form of security, and means that the
ENVOX Daemons account is a member of the domain
group so that any group member can log in and use CHIP.
’Global’ effectively means no security because anyone
can use CHIP.
J
CHIP_GROUP
If you define CHIP_SCOPE = Group and you want to
change the group to be used by the CHIP software from
the default of ’chip’, create an environment variable called
CHIP_GROUP. If you define CHIP_SCOPE =
SameAccount or Global, then leave CHIP_GROUP as
’chip’.
variable: CHIP_GROUP
value: myCHIPgroup
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Install CHIP Kernel F Section 4
J
63
CHIP_EVENT_LOGGING
The default for event logging is to log messages to the
Windows NT Event Viewer only. If you want to change
from the default, set the CHIP_EVENT_LOGGING
accordingly (the recommended setting is ’both’
variable: CHIP_EVENT_LOGGING
value: EventViewerOnly
or: LogFilesOnly
or: Both (Event Viewer and Log Files)
4.3
Changing CHIP Environment Variables

Section 5 F Install Client Server
Stage 3: Check the ENVOX Server
After the second restart, it takes approximately three minutes
for the Sybase server, CDOS and the ENVOX daemons to
start up. These services are started up in this order
automatically every time the workstation is restarted. The
exact time that this takes depends on the performance of your
workstation and the number and size of your databases. With
the recommended hardware, the default time delays will
ensure that Sybase has completed its startup before CDOS
and the daemons attempt to start up and connect to it.
To validate that startup has occurred successfully, check the
following log files in the Control Desktop data folder
(C:\Program Files\Frsi\ControlDesktopP50\data by default). If
CDOS or any of the daemons do not initialize successfully

The Installation Process
This section contains the detailed installation instructions.
7.1.1
Stage 1: Getting Started
Before starting the installation process to install ENVOX
Server P5.0, do the following:
J
J
Ensure that the ENVOX Server P5.0 workstation satisfies
the minimum hardware requirement: 400 MHz processor;
192 Mbytes RAM memory; 100 Mbytes System Hard Disk
free space; a second database disk is required with a
minimum of 300 Mbytes free.
Ensure that the Windows NT Task Manager Performance
tab Commit Charge group Limit field is greater than 500
Mbytes. If it is less than this then you must increase the
size of your swap file.
To change the size, go to your Control Panel, select the
System icon, and display the Performance tab. Click
Change in the Virtual memory group. When two drives are
available and there is no swap file on one of them, select
this drive and add a swap file with an initial size sufficient
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Install Server F Section 7
81
to take the sum of physical memory and swap file size
above 500 Mbytes. If you only have one drive, increase
the size of your existing swap file to take the sum of
physical memory and swap file size above 500 Mbytes.
With only one physical drive, disk access is the primary
limiting factor in Sybase server performance.
J
J
J
J
7.1.2
Ensure that the ENVOX Server P5.0 workstation satisfies
the minimum software requirement: Windows NT 4.0 with
Service Pack 4 or 6 and the TCP/IP network layer.
Ensure that the ENVOX Server P5.0 workstation has
CHIP Kernel software is installed.
Ensure you have your ’Network Account Parameters’
available, as described in Picking a Strategy, subsection
3.2. For instance, ensure that you have created a suitable
ENVOX Daemons account. Also, ensure you know the
Domain, Username and Password of this account.
Shut down all programs running on the workstation that
contain unsaved data. The installation process includes
restarts.
Stage 2: Install ENVOX Server
On the ENVOX P5.0 Server workstation, do the following:
1. Put the Control Desktop and ENVOX Server P5.0
Installation CD-ROM in the disk drive. It should autorun
the setup.exe file in the ControlDesktop directory. This
displays the Installation — Selection screen.
2. Select the option ’Install Server’ and click Next.
3. Read the License agreement, select Accept License
Agreement and then click Next.
4. If you are installing ENVOX Server P5.0 for the first time,
you are given the opportunity to select a custom location
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
82
Section 7 F Install Server
for ENVOX Server P5.0 software on the General screen.
The default locations are recommended. Click Next.
5. On the Sybase screen, enter a server name. If you will
only have one server on the network then accept
SYBASE; otherwise enter the node name of the
workstation. The default port numbers, memory and
number of connections can usually be left unchanged. If
you have a second drive for databases then redirect the
Master Database Location and System Procedures
Database to this drive using the Browse buttons or by
editing these fields. Then, click Next.
6. On the CDOS screen, enter the CDOS server name and
port number. The recommended name is CDOS if you
only have only one server; or NodeName_C, if you expect
to have more than one CDOS on your network, e.g.
CALIBAN_C.
7. On the ENVOXDB Creation screen, you can choose
whether or not to create an ENVOXDB, using the radio
buttons at the top of the screen.
J
J
If you are a new PROVOX user, then select Yes to
create a new database.
If you are upgrading from ENVOX P4.0 and do not
want a new database, select No.
If you have a second drive, then redirect the ’ENVOXDB
and envox_readonly’ databases location to the second
drive using the Browse button or by editing the fields.
Default sizes are sufficient for projects with up to about
2000 points. For larger projects, allow 120 Mbytes, plus
15 Mbytes per 1000 points as an initial size. Then, click
Next.
8. Using the ’Network Account Parameters’ on the ENVOX
Daemons Account screen, enter your network Domain,
which must include the ENVOX Server P5.0 workstation,
and the Username and Password of the ENVOX Task
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Install Server F Section 7
83
Daemon account, so that the ENVOX Client Task Daemon
service can access any files created by any Control
Desktop user.
9. The Summary screen displays the information you have
entered. Check that it is correct. You can click Back to
change any of your entries. Click Finish to install the
ENVOX Server P5.0 software.
10. After the software has been installed, you are prompted to
restart the computer. Do so, and ensure you log in again
using the same username and password for the second
part of the installation.
11. The ’Server Setup’ utility is run during the second part of
the installation. If necessary, add the Sybase and CDOS
servers. Enter their name, address and port number. Both
the Sybase and CDOS servers should ping successfully.
Then, select the CDOS and Sybase servers from the
relevant drop down boxes.
As an example, for the Sybase server enter the
’SERVERNAME’ and enter ’SERVERNAME,5000’ for its
network address, and for the CDOS server enter the
’SERVERNAME_C’ and enter ’SERVERNAME,7010’ for
its network address. There is online help available in the
Server Setup utility.
12. Click OK to save your settings and exit the utility.
13. A second restart is required at the end of installation to
save installed settings to the hard disk.
Within one month, you must obtain and install a license file for
CDOS.

7.1.3
Section 7 F Install Server
Stage 3: Check the ENVOX Server
After the second restart, it takes approximately three minutes
for the Sybase server, CDOS and the ENVOX daemons to
start up. These services are started up in this order
automatically every time the workstation is restarted. The
exact time that this takes depends on the performance of your
workstation and the number and size of your databases. With
the recommended hardware, the default time delays will
ensure that Sybase has completed its startup before CDOS
and the daemons attempt to start up and connect to it.
To validate that startup has occurred successfully, check the
following log files in the Control Desktop data folder
(C:\Program Files\Frsi\ControlDesktopP50\data by default). If
CDOS or any of the daemons do not initialize successfully
refer to Troubleshooting, Section 16.

Registry Modifications
Control Desktop uses the Windows NT Registry to store
information it needs to run, e.g. the name of the CDOS server
to use. This information is added under the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\FRSI\Control Desktop\5.0
Users who modify preferences within Control Desktop have
the changes saved to a similar section under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER. This allows users to move
between workstations and retain their Control Desktop
preferences. It also means that the preferences are taken
from the workstation’s setting.

This custom installation is only required if you need to install
CDOS on a separate workstation to the Sybase databases
server. When you choose ’Install CDOS’, the components
CDOS, Open Client, Open Server and Emergency Download
are installed to the workstation.
This custom installation allows the Sybase server and CDOS
to be installed on separate workstations. Under conditions of
very heavy CDOS usage, it may be prudent to dedicate a
separate workstation to CDOS. This would free up processor
resources on the workstation running the Sybase server and
give CDOS a processor to itself.

Stage 1: Getting Started (Subsection 13.2).
Before starting the Diagnostics installation, there are
certain tasks you must do, including getting the Web
Server machine set up, and making sure that CDOS has
been installed (typically part of an ENVOX Server or Client
Server install).
J
Stage 2: Installing Diagnostics with the Web Server

Stage 4: Adding Diagnostics Users, subsection 13.6.
Users need to be added to the Diagnostics module before
they can view diagnostics data.
If you encounter errors refer to the Troubleshooting
information available in Section 16.
13.1
Setting Up a Web Server
If you do not have an existing Windows NT Web Server or if
you do not want to add the Diagnostics capability to an
existing Windows NT Web Server, you must install and set up
a Web Server on one of your existing Windows NT PCs
before you start the Diagnostics installation. Choose one of
your more powerful PCs to be the Web Server PC.
The Web Server you choose must support one of the
following:
J
ISAPI extensions.
ISAPI is the Microsoft mechanism for extending Web
Server capabilities. ISAPI is supported by Microsoft’s
Internet Information Server (IIS), Microsoft’s Personal Web
Server, and others.
The Microsoft Personal Web Server is the recommended
option for the Windows NT Workstation operating system
variant. The Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) is
the recommended option for the Windows NT Server
operating system variant.
Diagnostics has been tested and certified for use with
ISAPI extensions using Microsoft’s Personal Web Server.
Although Diagnostics should work with any Web server
that fully supports ISAPI extensions, support can only be
given for Microsoft’s Personal Web Server. You may use
Diagnostics with an ISAPI server other than Microsoft’s
Personal Web Server on the understanding that the Web
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
114
Section 13 F Install Diagnostics
server has not been FRS-certified for use with
Diagnostics.
J
NSAPI extensions.
NSAPI is the Netscape mechanism for extending Web
Server capabilities. NSAPI is supported by Netscape’s
Enterprise Server, Netscape’s Fast Track Server, and
others.
Diagnostics has been tested and certified for use with
NSAPI extensions using Netscape’s Fast Track Web
Server. If you already use Netscape Enterprise Server,
then you can continue to use it.
To use the Diagnostics with Netscape Enterprise Server
3.5.1, the Netscape patch number P106927 is required.
Earlier releases of Netscape Enterprise Server (2.0 and
3.0) do not require this patch. This patch is downloadable
from:
http://help.netscape.com/filelib.html#nsapi
If you do not install the patch, an error is displayed stating
that the DLL ns-httpd20.dll cannot be found. This
error occurs after the Web Server has been restarted
following the changes described to obj.conf in these
instructions. In addition, Diagnostics will not run.
Diagnostics works with Netscape’s iPlanet 4.1 Web Server
butadditional licensed software and a different installation
procedure is required. If you prefer to use iPlanet 4.1,
ensure that CDOS has been installed. See Making Sure
CDOS P5.0 is Available in subsection 13.1.2) and then
refer to Stage 2: Installing Diagnostics with Netscape
iPlanet 4.2 Web Server in subsection 13.4.

Microsoft Personal Web Server Files on CD-ROM
Included on the Control Desktop CD-ROM are all of the files
you need to install the Microsoft Personal Web Server. This
Web Server is licensed under your existing Windows NT
license (either Windows NT Workstation or Windows NT
Server license) — there is no further payment necessary.
To install the Microsoft Personal Web Server, you need to
install three items of software. These items are supplied for
your convenience on the Control Desktop CD-ROM. In total,
the three items require about 100Mb of free disk space.
Note ... Although Web Server installation files are provided
on the CD-ROM, Fisher-Rosemount does not
describe or provide support for this installation
process. It is completely separate from Control
Desktop Diagnostics.
The items and the locations of their installation programs on
the CD-ROM are:
J
Windows NT 4 service pack 6:
\AdNtSoft\sp6_40i\update\update.exe
J
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0:
\AdNtSoft\IE5\ie5setup.exe
J
Windows NT 4 option pack:
\AdNtSoft\NT4opt\setup.exe
Microsoft Personal Web Server is a component of this file.
Install the items in the above order.

116
Section 13 F Install Diagnostics
These items are also downloadable from the Microsoft web
site www.microsoft.com. Refer to this site for further
information on any of these items.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 is required to perform the
Microsoft Personal Web Server Installation, as it supplies
various files required by the Microsoft Personal Web Server.
You do not have to use Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 as your
Web Browser.
When installing the Windows NT 4 option pack, you may
select the ’Minimum’ installation option, as this is sufficient to
install the Microsoft Personal Web Server.
Note ... When you install Microsoft Personal Web Server it
will output a message indicating that it has not been
tested on Windows NT SP4 or greater. Ignore these
messages. The CD-ROM contains the latest copy
of Microsoft Personal Web Server.
13.1.2
Making Sure CDOS P5.0 is Available
Diagnostics makes use of the CDOS component of the
ENVOX Server, which is included in a ’Client Server’, ’Server’,
and ’CDOS’ install. Therefore, install the ENVOX Server
before installing Diagnostics. Diagnostics can be installed on
the same workstation as CDOS or it can be installed onto a
separate workstation still within the domain, depending on the
workstation availability and performance.
When CDOS P5.0 is installed, two processes are
automatically started to handle requests for Diagnostics
information received by CDOS:
J
The main process is called the Diagnostics Daemon. This
process issues commands via the CHIP on the ENVOX
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Install Diagnostics F Section 13
117
Server P5.0 Windows NT machine onto the PROVOXr
highway. It provides all data for all diagnostics requests
CDOS receives, excluding PROVOX highway commands
that provide the data for Device Revision reports
submitted to CDOS.
J
The second process is the Device Revision Daemon. This
process also issues commands via the CHIP onto the
PROVOX highway. It issues all PROVOX highway
commands needed to provide the data for Device
Revision reports submitted to CDOS. CDOS does not
directly issue any commands via CHIP itself.
When the Web Server and CDOS P5.0 are set up, you can
proceed with Diagnostics, Stage 2. You have a choice of
which Stage 2 to use:
J
J
13.2
For most Web Servers, proceed with Stage 2: Installing
Diagnostics with the Web Server. This applies to the
Microsoft Personal Web Server, the Microsoft Internet
Information Server (IIS), Netscape’s Enterprise Server,
and Netscape’s Fast Track Server.
If you are installing Diagnostics for use with a Netscape
iPlanet 4.2 Web Server, proceed with Stage 2: Installing
Diagnostics with Netscape iPlanet 4.2 Web Server
(Subsection 13.4).
Stage 1: Getting Started
There are two main items that need to be set up before you
can install ENVOX Server and Control Desktop Diagnostics
using the Setup program on the CD-ROM:
J
J
A Web Server installed on one of the Windows NT
workstations in your network (see subsection 13.1 above).
CDOS P5.0 installed on a server on your network. This is
normally done as part of the ENVOX Server P5.0
installation using the Server or Client Server install option.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
118
Section 13 F Install Diagnostics
Providing that there is a sufficient processor and RAM in the
workstation for the expected number of users, system
maintenance is simplified by having the Web Server run on
the same workstation as ENVOX Server because this avoids
the need to reboot the Web Server when the ENVOX Server
is restarted.
However, there is a reduction in performance when the
ENVOX Server and the Web Server are running on the same
workstation. Therefore, if the workstation does not have
sufficient resources to handle both, install the Web Server
and Diagnostics onto a separate workstation. Refer to Before
You Begin, subsection 2.2, for a summary of workstation
hardware and software requirements.
13.3
Stage 2: Installing Diagnostics with the Web
Server
The steps you need to follow to add the Diagnostics capability
to your Web Server are:
1. Install the Diagnostics Software
2. Create a Database NT Service
3. Add the CDOS Server to the SQL.INI File
4. Configure the Web Server
Note ... If you are installing Diagnostics for use with a
Netscape iPlanet 4.2 Web Server, ignore this
section and read Stage 2: Installing Diagnostics

Install the Diagnostics Software
To start the Diagnostics installation:
1. Login to the Web Server PC as a user with Windows NT
administration privileges. All of the installation needs to be
performed by this user.
2. Shut down any programs that are running and insert the
ENVOX Server and Control Desktop CD-ROM. The
Setup.exe program normally starts automatically. If,
however, AutoRun has been disabled on this machine,
then run the \ControlDesktop\Setup.exe program
from the CD-ROM drive.
3. When you are familiar with all of the relevant Diagnostics
installation instructions, select the ’Install Remote
Diagnostics’ option to launch the Setup program.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
The installation adds the following components:
J
Sybase Open Client and Net Libraries.
J
Sybase System 11 ODBC driver.
J
Sybase SQL Anywhere ODBC driver.

13.3.2
Section 13 F Install Diagnostics
Create a Database NT Service
Toward the end of the Diagnostics installation (described
above), the ’SQL Anywhere Service Manager’ is run. Using
this application, create an NT Service to start the SQL
Anywhere database server for the Diagnostics web page
database. Create the NT Service as follows:
1. Click the New button in the SQL Anywhere Service
Manager dialog box.
2. Select the Network Server option and click the OK
button.
3. In the Service name box, enter Diags
4. In the Parameters text box, enter:
-c 4096
-x tcpip
-ti 0
”c:\sqlany50\diags.db”
where c:\sqlany50 (the default folder) needs to be
replaced with the folder where SQL Anywhere is installed.
You can copy and paste these parameters into the text
box if you are viewing this document online while installing
Diagnostics.
5. Uncheck the ’Allow service to interact with the desktop’
box (so that no tick appears in the box).
6. Select the Automatic Startup option and click OK. This
causes the Database server to be started whenever the
machine is booted.
The new service name ’Diags (Server)’ is displayed in the
list box.
7. Click the Start icon to start the database server. If the
server fails to start, then click the Edit button and ensure
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Install Diagnostics F Section 13
121
that the parameters have been entered correctly —
correct them as necessary.
8. When the server has started successfully, click the Close
button.
13.3.3
Add the CDOS Server to the SQL.INI File
During the installation, you are prompted for the name of the
Control Desktop Open Server to use (to provide Diagnostics
information). This defaults to ’CDOS’. The name you give to
the installation program needs to exist in the SQL.INI file in
the \INI sub-folder of the Open Client installation folder (by
default C:\SQL10\INI\SQL.INI).
Once the installation program has finished, you need to
manually edit SQL.INI using a text editor such as Notepad.
Add the entry for the CDOS server (or if entries already exist
in the file, check that the entry is correct).
For instance, if Open Client is installed into C:\SQL10, then
edit the file C:\SQL10\INI\SQL.INI following completion
of the installation program and add an entry for the CDOS
server. The entry always has the following format:
[server]query=NLWNSCK, machine, port
where
server is the CDOS server name
machine is the name of the machine where the CDOS
server is running
port is the IP port for the CDOS server. The IP address
can be used in place of machine, if necessary.
NLWNSCK refers to the name of the Sybase
Net-Library Winsock DLL.
For example, if the CDOS server name is ’CDOS’ and is
running on machine ’BANQUO’, port 7010, then the entry
reads:
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
122
Section 13 F Install Diagnostics
[CDOS]
query=NLWNSCK, BANQUO, 7010
The name you give to the CDOS server (’CDOS’ by default) is
used in configuring the ODBC data source used by Control
Desktop Diagnostics. If at a later date, you want to change
the name used for the CDOS server after installation, the
’Control Desktop P5.0 Diagnostics’ ODBC system data source
needs its server name changed to reflect the new CDOS
server name. Normally you should not need to change the
CDOS server name used by Diagnostics after installation.
13.3.4
Configure the Web Server
Web Server specific configuration is required to make the
Web Server use the DLLs/executables that extend the Web
Server to support Diagnostics. This configuration depends on
the type of Web Server extensions it supports, as follows:
13.3.4.1
J
ISAPI Servers
J
NSAPI Servers
ISAPI Servers
The general approach is to add a Virtual Directory to either
your Microsoft Personal Web Server or Internet Service
Manager. Add a Virtual Directory with the alias ’FRSI’ pointing
to the win32 sub-directory of the Sybase Tools installation
directory. By default this will be the directory
c:\sybtools\win32. Set the Virtual Directory access set to
’Execute’ only.
To add the Virtual Directory to the Microsoft Personal Web
Server:
1. Double-click the Publish icon that is added to your
desktop when Microsoft Personal Web Server is installed.
The Personal Web Manager is displayed.

Install Diagnostics F Section 13
123
2. Click on the Advanced icon at the bottom of the left-hand
pane. The Advanced Options dialog box is displayed.
3. Click the Add button. The Add Directory dialog box is
displayed.
4. Set the Directory field to the win32 sub-directory of the
Sybase Tools installation directory — this is normally
c:\sybtools\win32). Set the Alias field to ’FRSI’. Set the
Access field so that only ’Execute’ is selected.
5. Click OK, and then close the Personal Web Manager
application.
To add the Virtual Directory using the Internet Service
Manager (used to configure IIS):
1. Double-click on the computer name in the entry for the
WWW service on this machine. The WWW Service
Properties dialog box is displayed.
2. Select the Directories tab and click the Add button. The
Directory Properties dialog box is displayed.
3. Set the Directory field to the ’WIN32’ sub-directory of the
Sybase Tools installation directory — this is normally
c:\sybtools\win32). Click Virtual Directory. Set the
Alias field to ’FRSI’. Set the Access field so that only
’Execute’ is selected.
4. Click OK.
5. We recommend you reboot the workstation to ensure that
the Windows NT Registry changes take effect.
After you have added the Virtual Directory, Web Browsers can
access the Diagnostics login page using the address:
http://server/frsi/niis.dll/diags/login.stm
where server is the name (or IP address) of the Web Server
PC you have just installed.

Section 13 F Install Diagnostics
When you have installed the Diagnostics software on the Web
Server, you can proceed to Stage 3: Configuring Web
Browsers in subsection 13.5.
13.3.4.2
NSAPI Servers
To configure an NSAPI server to support Control Desktop
Diagnostics, the configuration file Obj.conf needs to be
edited. This plain text file is located in the ’Config’ directory of
each server configuration. For instance, on the machine
’Caliban’, the file may be found at:
c:\Netscape\SuiteSpot\httpd-caliban\config\obj.conf
The additions you need to make to this file are described
below.
We recommend that you use ’copy and paste’ when copying
information from this online information to avoid typing errors.
1. Instruct the Web Server to load the DLL named
NINS.DLL in the win32 sub-directory of the Sybase
Tools installation directory — this is normally
c:\sybtools\win32. To do this, add the following line
after any other ’Init fn’ commands:
Init fn=”load-modules” shlib=c:/sybtools/win32/nins.dll
funcs=”_netimpact_ntrans,_netimpact_fn,_netimpact_pathcheck”
Enter this command all on one line — it wrapped here for
display reasons only. Note the use of forward slashes in

OK.
6. On the Connection Profiles window, select the new
Diagnostics entry, and click on the Set Startup button to
reconnect at start-up automatically. The Use on Startup
field is set to ’YES’. Then click Close.
7. Add a mapping for the URL prefix /diags to Diagnostics.
In the left-hand pane, select Sybase Central --> Power
Dynamo 3.5 --> Utilities --> Configuration --> Mappings.
If necessary, double-click to open the next level down.
8. Double-click on Add Mapping, and enter /diags in the
Type in a ULR prefix... field. Use the Browse button to
select the Diagnostics web site (the name of the
connection profile created above). Then, click OK.
9. Select File --> Exit.
13.4.5
Add the CDOS Server to the SQL.INI File
During the installation, you are prompted for the name of the
Control Desktop Open Server to use (to provide Diagnostics
information). This defaults to ’CDOS’. The name you give to
the installation program needs to exist in the SQL.INI file in
the \INI sub-folder of the Open Client installation folder (by
default, ’C:\Program Files\Sybase\INI\SQL.INI’).
Once the installation program has finished, you need to
manually edit SQL.INI using a text editor such as Notepad.
Add the entry for the CDOS server (or if entries already exist
in the file, check that the entry is correct).
For instance, if Open Client is installed into
C:\Program Files\Sybase, then edit the file
C:\Program Files\Sybase\INI\SQL.INI following
completion of the installation program and add an entry for
the CDOS server.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
134
Section 13 F Install Diagnostics
The entry always has the format:
[servername]query=NLWNSCK, machine, port
where
servername is the CDOS server name
machine is the name of the machine where the CDOS
server is running
port is the IP port for the CDOS server. The IP address
can be used in place of machine, if necessary.
NLWNSCK refers to the name of the Sybase
Net--Library Winsock DLL.
For example, if the CDOS server name is ’CDOS’ and is
running on machine ’BANQUO’, port 7010, then the entry
reads:
[CDOS]
query=NLWNSCK, BANQUO, 7010
The name you give to the CDOS server (’CDOS’ by default) is
used in configuring the ODBC data source used by Control
Desktop Diagnostics. If at a later date, you want to change
the name used for the CDOS server after installation, the
’Control Desktop P5.0 Diagnostics’ ODBC system data source
needs its server name changed to reflect the new CDOS
server name. Normally you should not need to change the
CDOS server name used by Diagnostics after installation.
13.4.6
Configure the Web Server
Web Server specific configuration is required to make the
Web Server use the DLLs/executables that extend the Web
Server to support Diagnostics.
To configure an NSAPI server to support Diagnostics, the
configuration file OBJ.CONF needs to be edited. This plain
text file is located in the ’Config’ folder of each server
configuration.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Install Diagnostics F Section 13
135
The default path and filename are:
c:\Netscape\Server4\https-servername.TCP/IP DNS domainname\config\obj.conf
For instance, on the machine ’Caliban’ in the TCP/IP domain
of ’MainDomain.com’, the file may be found at:
c:\Netscape\Server4\https-caliban.maindomain.com\config\obj.conf
The additions you need to make to this file are described
below.
We recommend that you use a text editor such as Notepad to
edit the obj.conf file, and use ’copy and paste’ when
copying information from this online to avoid typing errors.
1. Make a backup copy of obj.conf so that you can recover it
later, if there is a problem.
2. Instruct the Web Server to load the DLL named
dy3ns03.dll in the win32 sub-directory of the Sybase
Power Dynamo installation directory — this is normally
’C:/Program Files/Sybase/PowerDynamo/Win32’.
To do this, add the following line before any other ’Init fn’
commands (enter this command all on one line — it wraps
here for display reasons only):
Init fn=load-modules shlib=”C:/Program Files/Sybase/PowerDynamo/Win32/
dy3ns03.dll” funcs=”_dynamo_ntrans,_dynamo_fn,_dynamo_pathcheck,_dynamo_init”
Init fn=_dynamo_init
Note the use of forward slashes in shlib path. This path
needs to be different if the PowerDynamo folder is not
located in:
C:/Program Files/Sybase/PowerDynamo/Win32.
3. Add the following line at the top of the NameTrans list:
NameTrans fn=_dynamo_ntrans
4. Add the following line at the top of the PathCheck list:
PathCheck fn=_dynamo_pathcheck
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
136
Section 13 F Install Diagnostics
5. Add the following section to the end of the file:
<Object name=PowerDynamo>
Service fn=_dynamo_fn
</Object>
A sample obj.conf file is shown in Sample obj.conf File
for iPlanet Web Server below.
The string...
C:/Program Files/Sybase/PowerDynamo/Win32/dy3ns03.dll
...in the first line depends on where the PowerDynamo
(previously called NetImpact Dynamo) DLLs are installed.
6. When you have finished, save the obj.conf file.
7. We recommend that you stop the Web Server and then
restart it, by selecting Control Panel --> Services,
highlighting the ’iWS (machinename.TCP/IP DNS
domainname)’ option, and clicking Stop followed by Start.
If it does not restart, check the obj.conf file for typing
mistakes. Exit from the Control Panel.
8. When your Web Server restarts successfully, close all
applications, including the Web Server, and reboot the
workstation. You are notified that an ’An ASA service is
still running but it has no connections. End this service?’,
to which you can respond by clicking Yes. Occasionally,
errors can occur with Diagnostics if you do not reboot.
Web Browsers can view the Diagnostics ’admin’ and ’login’
pages using the addresses:
http://server/diags/admin.stm
http://server/diags/login.stm
where server is the name (or IP address) of the Web Server
PC you have just installed.

Stage 3: Configuring Web Browsers
Each machine on which you wish to display Diagnostics must
have a Web Browser installed.
The Control Desktop Diagnostics module is displayed by
connecting to the special Web address specified above in
Stage 2: Installing Diagnostics on the Web Server
(Subsection 13.3) or Stage 2: Netscape iPlanet 4.2 Web
Server (Subsection 13.4).
The machine that the Web Browser is running on does not
have to be running Windows NT. However, if it is, then use of
Control Desktop Diagnostics is only supported on Windows
NT machines running the following Web Browsers:
J
Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0, or later.
J
Netscape Navigator 3.0, or later.
Other Web Browsers (possibly running on other operating
systems) may be able to display the Diagnostics web pages
without error or with reduced functionality. However, FRS
provides no support for these Browsers.
The Web Browser Microsoft Internet Explorer 2.0 installed as
part of the original Windows NT 4.0 release does not run
Diagnostics correctly. You need to upgrade to Microsoft
Internet Explorer 3.0, or later, to run Diagnostics.
If you use a proxy server, ensure that you do not use the
proxy server for local addresses, as follows:

Stage 4: Adding Diagnostics Users and
Testing Their Logins
You need to add Diagnostics Users to ENVOX Server and
Control Desktop Diagnostics before they can view diagnostics
data. To do this:
1. In any suitable Web Browser from any workstation, enter
one of the web page addresses:
J
for NSAPI Web Servers:
http://server/diags/admin.stm
J
for ISAPI Web Servers:
http://server/frsi/niis.dll/diags/admin.stm.
This displays the Diagnostics Administrator Login web
page.
2. Enter the Administrator’s Password. Initially this is
cdospass.
This is the password of the ’ca’ account on the CDOS
server.
Change the Administrator Password using the Alter
Administrator Password option on the Diagnostics
Administration main menu as soon as possible after
installation. Take care to remember this password. If
CDOS is ever upgraded, you must set the password back
to ’cdospass’ before starting the upgrade.
3. Click Login.
4. Select Add user from the menu that is displayed.
5. On the next page, enter the Name of the Diagnostics User
and their Password (enter it twice to confirm the

user is to be allowed to perform switch-overs and
synchronize device clocks.
6. Click Add User, and on the confirmation page click OK.
Repeat the process for each Diagnostics User.
Once you have set up Diagnostics Users, you can test that
their logins work by logging into Diagnostics as that user,
using the Diagnostics user name you have added for them.
This is exactly the same procedure that the user would use.
To do this, follow this procedure:
1. Using any suitable Web Browser on any workstation, enter
one of the web page addresses:

choose to install the manuals defines the folder
structure for future installs of the ENVOXr Server
and Control Desktop software. Some settings are
automatically set to their default values, and
therefore we recommend that you install the server
or client software before installing the User
Manuals.

Administration Issues, Section 3: Explains the different
accounts available, and discusses administration issues.
Follow this general procedure:
1. Read the ENVOX Server and Control Desktop P5.0
Release Notes for the latest product information, and
Before You Begin, subsection 2.2, to ensure that your
workstation is in a valid state for installation. In addition, if
necessary, read the information on accounts in
Administration Issues, Section 3.
2. The installation process and workstation requirements for
installing the User Manuals and Adobe Acrobat are not
the same as for an ENVOX Server and Control Desktop
software install. Consequently, if you want to install the
User Manuals onto a separate machine from the ENVOX
Server or Control Desktop workstation(s), you may do so.
Note ... When this custom option is installed on a
workstation, the extension *.PDF will be associated
with the Adobe Acrobat Reader application (and not
to the Control Desktop P5.0 — ViewPDF utility).

Upgrade ENVOX Databases
Before you can upgrade earlier ENVOX database versions,
ENVOX Server P5.0 and Control Desktop P5.0 must already
be installed.
The Control Desktop user interface handles Console
Extended Alarms in a different way than that of ENVOX P4.0
forms. If you have different sets of Console Extended Alarms
configured for points in the ENVOX database, you need to
change the configuration. Refer to Configuring Console
Extended Alarms.

Section 15 F Upgrading, Deinstalling, and Reinstalling
There are two scenarios for the ENVOX Server and Control
Desktop P5.0 database upgrade process, depending on what
version of ENVOX you currently have.
J
J
15.1.1
For users with ENVOX P4.0 systems, refer to Upgrade
ENVOX P4.0 Systems in subsection 15.1.1.
For users with pre-ENVOX P4.0 systems, refer to
Upgrade Pre-ENVOX P4.0 Systems in subsection 15.1.3.
Upgrading ENVOX P4.0 Systems
If you currently have an ENVOX P4.0 system (including 4.0.1
and 4.0.2) and want to upgrade to ENVOX P5.0, follow these
steps:
1. On your existing DEC VAX, DEC ALPA, or HP-UX system,
use the ENVOX client option More --> Administration
and login as database administrator. Use the menu option
Backup --> Dump To PDX file for each of your ENVOX
databases.
2. Use a file transfer program such as FTP to transfer the
PDX files on your existing ENVOX P4.0 system to your
new ENVOX Server P5.0 workstation.
3. Select the Start --> Programs --> Frsi --> Control
Desktop P5 --> Server Administration menu option.
Create database(s) for PDX load. Each database should
be created 10% larger than it was in your existing system.
Use the Server Administration online help to assist you.
4. Use the Server Administration menu option Databases -->
Load from PDX to load the PDX dump files into the
database(s) you have created. They are automatically
upgraded to ENVOX Server P5.0.
5. You can then use Control Desktop P5.0 to access the
upgraded databases.

15.1.2
151
Reconfiguring Console Extended Alarms
In ENVOX, Console Extended Alarms are configured as part
of the target data for a point. You can have many (up to 32)
different sets of Console Extended Alarms for a single point.
In the Control Desktop user interface, they are configured as
part of the source point data, and you can only have one set
per point. This means that Console Extended Alarm values
are the same for ALL consoles a point is targeted to.
If you have different sets of Console Extended Alarms
configured for points in the ENVOX database then you need
change the configuration so that each point only has one set
of Console Extended Alarms configured for all Consoles the
point is targeted to. The SQL below will output the tag names
of points that have different sets of Console Extended Alarms
configured.
First, log into SQL as the ”sa” user:
> isql -Psa_password -Usa
Where sa_password is the password for the Sybase sa user.
Once in SQL, you need to run the following for all ENVOX
databases being transferred to ENVOX Server and Control
Desktop P5.0.
1> use ENVOXDB
2> go
1> select
2>
from
3>

distinct ia.point_tag
indices ia, indices ib,
provue_ext_alarms a, provue_ext_alarms b
a.target_id = ia.target_id
b.target_id = ib.target_id
ia.point_tag = ib.point_tag
ia.device_tag != ib.device_tag
a.number = b.number
(a.type != b.type or
a.attr != b.attr or

1>
a.limit != b.limit or
a.deadband != b.deadband or
a.word != b.word or
a.group_no != b.group_no)
exit /* or repeat for other ENVOX databases */
For all points that are output from the above SQL,
re--configure the Console Extended Alarms so the point only
has one set of Console Extended Alarms for all Consoles the
point is targeted. Then generate and (when the plant is in an
appropriate state to allow it ) download to all Consoles which
have been modified to validate the revised configuration.
15.1.3
Upgrading Pre-ENVOX P4.0 Systems
If you currently have a pre-ENVOX P4.0 system, i.e., P2.0,
P3.0, P3.2, P3.3, or P3.4 (not ENVOX P4.0), and want to
upgrade to ENVOX P5.0, then you will need to upgrade your
databases to ENVOX P4.0 first. Please contact you local
FRSI sales representative to discuss the best approach for
your site.
All upgrade paths must result in a PDX dump from an ENVOX
P4.0 system. The upgrade then continues from step 2 in
Upgrade ENVOX P4.0 Systems, as described above.
15.2
Deinstall Control Desktop P1.0 or P2.0
If you have an existing Control Desktop P1.0 or Control
Desktop P2.0 on the workstation on which you wish to install
Control Desktop P5.0, you must deinstall it as described in its
installation manual. Control Desktop versions P1.0 and P2.0
cannot coexist on the same node with version P5.0.
You must also deinstall the Diagnostics module from your
Control Desktop P2.0 Web Server workstation. There can be
only one web server named ’diags’ running at a time.

Upgrading, Deinstalling, and Reinstalling F Section 15
153
The following procedure desinstalls Control Desktop P1.0 or
P2.0:
1. Save any customized configuration settings you may have
on your workstation, as described in the next section,
User Created Files and Data. This ensures that anything
you have customized in P1.0 or P2.0 is not lost during the
upgrade.
2. Select Settings --> Control Panel to display the Windows
NT Control Panel.
3. Select Add/Remove Programs to display the Add/Remove
Programs Properties dialog box.
4. Highlight the Control Desktop option in the list of
programs, and click Add/Remove.
5. Follow the on-screen instructions.
6. If there is a chance that a previous version of Control
Desktop has been installed more than once on the
workstation, then you can check whether the deinstall has
fully removed the files and folders. If there are any files or
folders remaining, they do not stop Control Desktop P5.0
from functioning, but you may choose to delete them to
free some hard disk space and tidy your folder structure.
To deinstall remaining files, use the Windows Explorer and
look for the following folders (default paths are also shown):
J
J
”\Sql10” — If this folder remains and any subfolders or
files are held in it, you can delete them.
”\Program Files\Frsi\ControlDesktop” or ”\Program
Files\Frsi\ControlDesktop20” — If this folder remains,
check for any customized data held in it or one of its
subfolders. Save any customized data to a safe temporary
folder (this may be usable in P5.0), and then remove the
folders. Be careful not to remove the
”\ControlDesktopP50” folder.

Section 15 F Upgrading, Deinstalling, and Reinstalling
User-Created Files and Data
There are several issues concerning the upgrade from
Control Desktop P1.0 and P2.0 to P5.0 which relate to the
files that can be created from the Control Desktop user
interface. These are:
15.3.1
J
Filter files
J
Report Writer Saved Report Output and Saved Query files
J
Customized Grid Definition files
J
Matrix Data Saved to External Format files
J
User Defined Help file
P1.0 Filter Files
Control Desktop P1.0 filter files are not directly re-usable
because the filter information in Control Desktop P2.0 and
P5.0 is stored in the registry. To transfer filters from P1.0 to
P5.0, copy and paste the information from the P1.0 filter file
into the P5.0 Filter dialog box. Do this using the following
steps:
1. Open the P1.0 filter file, using an editor such as Notepad.
By default, the filter file is located in the C:\Program
Files\Frsi\Control Desktop\Filters folder.
2. Run Control Desktop P5.0 and connect to a Sybase
server.
3. Select File --> Open and click Filter.
4. In the text editor, copy the text following expression=, and
paste the text into the Control Desktop P5.0 Expression
tab text box.

5. Note the sort criteria displayed in the text editor following
sort=, and select the Control Desktop P5.0 Sort tab, and
drag the identical sort columns from the list onto the tab.
6. Save the newly created P5.0 filter by clicking Save As.
You may want to use the same comment as used in P1.0
which you can find after the comment= text in the P1.0
filter file.
15.3.2
Saving P2.0 Filters before Deinstall
You can save your filters to a text file before you deinstall
P2.0 and then paste them back into the P5.0 Filter dialog
box.
15.3.3
Report Writer Saved Report Output and Query Files
Control Desktop P1.0 Report Writer output files (*.PSR) and
report query files (*.QRY) are fully compatible with Control
Desktop P5.0. Users can open them and reuse them in
Control Desktop P5.0:
J
J
To use a P1.0 and P2.0 saved Report Writer output file
with Control Desktop P5.0, locate the P1.0 report output
file within Report Writer, and display the Saved Report
File dialog box.
To use a P1.0 saved Report Writer query file with Control
Desktop P5.0, locate the P1.0 report query file within
Report Writer, and display the Open Query dialog box.
By default, both of these file types are located in the
C:\Program Files\Frsi\Control Desktop\Filters folder.

Section 15 F Upgrading, Deinstalling, and Reinstalling
P1.0 Customized Grid Definition Files
Control Desktop P1.0 (not P2.0) customized grid definition
files (for example, AI.GRD) are not compatible with Control
Desktop P5.0. You must re-enter customized grid definitions
manually in Control Desktop P5.0, as follows:
1. Before deinstalling Control Desktop P1.0, make a note of
the settings for any customized grids.
2. Deinstall Control Desktop P1.0 and install Control Desktop
P5.0. This procedure is fully described in the installation
instructions.
3. Run Control Desktop P5.0, and select View --> Matrix.
4. Select the matrix that you want to customize.
5. Customize the grid, using Format --> Change Heading,
by moving columns, and so on, following the notes you
took in step 1.
6. Save the customized grid definition using Format -->
Save Grid Definition.
Repeat steps 4 to 6 for each customized grid.
Note ... Remember that P1.0 grid definition files are not
compatible with Control Desktop P5.0 and you must
follow the preceding steps if you want to reuse a
customized grid definition. P1.0 grid definitions are
not compatible with Control Desktop P5.0 because
grid validation information (held in the grid definition
file) has changed between releases. If you use
P1.0 grid definitions with P5.0, you will not be able
to use the Control Desktop P5.0 enhancements for
grids.

Matrix Data Saved to External Format Files
In general, data saved from a Control Desktop P1.0 matrix
using the Save to External Format option are compatible
with Control Desktop P5.0, and you can load them into
Control Desktop P5.0 using the Load from External Format
option.
The only exception is data saved to external format from the
AI matrix. There are two changes to the valid data that you
can enter for AI columns which means that you must modify
the data in the external format file before attempting to load
the P1.0 external format file into the Control Desktop AI
matrix.
Use Excel or another application to manipulate the data in the
external format file, and change the values as follows:
J
input_fail_action column (Action on Input Failure):
Change the P1.0 value USE CONFIGURED VALUE to
USE CALCULATED VALUE.
J
fail_inp_ou_rnge_enb column (Fail Input on Over/User
Range Enbl)
Replace the P1.0 values YES and NO with one of the
following P2.0 values: BOTH, DISABLED, OVERRANGE,
and UNDERRANGE.
The P1.0 value YES is equivalent to the P2.0 value
BOTH, and the P1.0 value NO is equivalent to the P5.0
value DISABLED. You can leave a P1.0 null value as null
for P5.0.

User-Defined Help File
If there is a user defined help file that was created for use
with Control Desktop P1.0 or P2.0, you can use this help file
with Control Desktop P5.0. To use the P1.0 or P2.0 user
defined help file with Control Desktop P5.0, follow these
steps:
1. Before deinstalling Control Desktop P1.0 or P2.0, open
the Control Desktop P1.0 initialization file, using a text
editor such as Notepad. By default, the file is C:\Program
Files\Frsi\Control Desktop\CED.INI.
2. Make a note of the name of the user defined help file
which follows the text userhelp=.
3. Deinstall Control Desktop P1.0 or P2.0, and install Control
Desktop P5.0.
4. Run Control Desktop P5.0, and select Admin --> Options.
5. Select the Help tab, select (check) the User Help file
check box, and enter the user defined help file name into
the text box.
15.4
Deinstalling ENVOX Server and Control
Desktop P5.0 Components
For most installations, to deinstall any of the components you
installed, you need to deinstall the entire set of components.
For instance, if you installed the full ’Client Server’ option,
then you must deinstall all of the client components and all of
the server components in one action, and not individual
applications or modules.

Note ... The two deinstallation processes that require a
separate procedure are for CHIP Kernel and for
Diagnostics. These are described in Deinstalling
CHIP Kernel in subsection 15.4.3 and Deinstalling
Diagnostics in subsection 15.4.2, respectively.
The way you remove an ENVOX Server and Control Desktop
P5.0 installation depends on how you installed it. If you
installed it from CD-ROM, then reinsert the Installation
CD-ROM and follow instructions. If, however, you installed it
from a network folder, then select the ’Add/Remove Programs’
applet from the Windows NT Control Panel.
Note ... Do not attempt to deinstall files manually. Some
files may not be deleted and made redundant. In
addition, your registry may be left containing
obsolete information. This can reduce the efficiency

remaining ENVOX Server and Control Desktop components
continue to work normally.
For instance, if a single option is installed, then a deinstall
does the following:
J
J
All of the files installed into the Control Desktop path are
deleted.
If the Sybase Open Client was installed by Control
Desktop, then Open Client files are removed. If the Open
Client was installed prior to Control Desktop, then the files
are not removed.
J
Registry entries for deinstalled components are deleted.
J
Start menu entries are removed.
J
Empty folders are removed.
In a situation where two or more options are installed, and
you choose to deinstall one of them, then a deinstall does the
following:
J
Files in the Control Desktop path used exclusively by the
option being deinstalled are deleted. Files that are
common to the component not be deinstalled (or exclusive
to that component) are not deleted.
J
Registry entries for deinstalled components are deleted.
J
Start menu entries are removed.
J
Empty folders are removed.
When deinstalling, the following file types and file names are
deleted, and therefore they should not be used for any user
files you may create: *.bak, *.cfg, *.err, *.gid, *.ini, *.inp, *.log,
log*.*, *.sts, *.vtf.

Error — Blank Server Field in “Connect to Database” Dialog Box
When you use the Admin --> Login menu option, the
Connect to Database dialog box is displayed. Normally there
should be at least one entry in the Server drop down box. If
this field is blank when you click on the drop down arrow, the
unusual cause is that CDOS has not been initialized
successfully.

There are many reasons for this error, all of which are outside
the control of the application. (You might also see a similar
message in Control Designer). Possible reasons, in order of
probability, are:
1. Ensure that you can log into the database from ENVOXr
Software and Control Desktop.
If the Login name and Password do not give access to the
selected server/database, then validate them using ISQL
direct on the Sybase server and database.
For example, use a command such as:
C:\> isql -Sservername -Uusername -Puser
password
So, for a system administrator on a server named
’ENVOXSERVER’, this command may be:
C:\> isql -SENVOXSERVER -Usa -Psa password
Or, for the ENVOX user on a server named
’ENVOXSERVER’, this command may be:
C:\> isql -SENVOXSERVER -UENVOX -Ppassword
2. At least two servers must be configured in the Control
Desktop Server Setup utility:
J
the CDOS Open Server
J
the default Sybase server.
For each additional Sybase Server that is to be accessed,
you need to add the server to the list, in the top half of the
Control Desktop Server Setup dialog box.
3. The name of the Sybase server used in the Control
Desktop Server Setup utility must be the same as the
Sybase server name displayed by Control Desktop in the
Login dialog box. For example, if the server name is
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
168
Section 16 F Troubleshooting
’SYBASE’, then this is the name that must be used in
Server Setup. ODBC needs the server name to match.
4. Changes within Server Setup are not active until you exit
from Control Desktop and re-start it.
5. The server may have run out of connections.
To determine the number of connections, go in ISQL, and
type sp_configure. The third parameter indicates the
number of user connections available. This must be
consistent with the number of users required.
A Control Designer user with all possible applications in
use at once requires 13 connections. Allow 4 connections
for each concurrent ENVOX user. For 7 users, we
recommend 125 connections.
To compare the number of connections configured with
the number of server processes running, login as the ’sa’
user, and type the following:
> sp_configure
> go
This displays the type of connections configured; for
example:

If your parameter connections are configured for 27 and
you run sp_who and find that you have 27 processes
open, you know you are running out of user connections.
6. The Sybase server process may be off-line.
To find out whether the server is off-line, use Ping in
Control Desktop Server Setup. If it is off-line, then on the
Server workstation, use the Control Panel to view
services. The service called ’Sybase
SQLServer_servername’ ; for example, ’Sybase
SQLServer_SYBASE must have the status ’running’. If
the view shows that the Sybase server is not started, then
start the server by selecting the service and clicking on
the Start button.
7. The network connection may not be working.
To find out if the network connection is working, use a
command prompt window to ping the server node:
Z:\your_name ping server
Pinging server.address [129.76.21.100] w

You may also want to verify that you have a network set
up and working on each machine, by logging in to your
server and sending a ping to the same machine via its IP
address.
8. If you get errors when logging in to a database, the user’s
default database may be unusable, If it is unusable, you
cannot connect to any database in the selected server.
Record any error messages and contact your
Fisher-Rosemount Systems representative or sales office.
If, after investigating all of the above reasons, and you are still
having errors, do the following:
1. Reinstall Control Desktop.
2. Attempt to connect to the relevant database using MS
Access (if you have it) to validate ODBC. In version 7.0,
the route is as follows:
File --> Get External Data --> Link tables
Link dialog box --> File Type --> ODBC Database -->
Control Desktop Login dialog box
3. Enter Server, Database, UserName, Password, and click
OK.
There is a long delay, and you then see either of the

If you receive this message whenever the Function Block
Editor is started, it is because no default printer has been
specified for the PC. The Function Block Editor uses the
default paper size of the default printer as its page size. If a

Block Editor issues this warning and uses a paper size of A4.
Try the following:
1. To prevent the message occurring, specify a default
printer for the PC whose default paper size you want the
Function Block Editor to use as its page size.
2. If there are no printers defined, specify a default printer by
selecting the Settings --> Printer option from the Start

Error — Licensing Errors in Control Designer
Control Designer is purchased with a certain number of
licenses. Each time a user starts Control Designer, the user
acquires a Control Designer license. When the user acquires
a license successfully, there is no feedback from Control
Designer. Upon exiting Control Designer, the license is
released so that another user can acquire it.

In this situation, contact the users listed and determine if
they are actively using Control Designer. If not, ask them
to exit Control Designer so that you can acquire a license.
If insufficient licenses become a frequent occurrence, you
can purchase additional Control Designer licenses. If a
user or node is listed which does not appear to be
currently running Control Designer, you may have to
reboot the PC indicated in the message to ensure that a
DLL holding the license has been terminated. This is not

reason for this error message.
2. If the name was entered correctly, the error is probably
due to the SQL Anywhere Network Server disconnecting a

A file that contains an SQL query that you use to generate a custom report in
Report Writer. When you save a query in a QRY file, you can open the QRY file
from Report Writer and use it to generate another custom report.
Real
A PROVOX point type. A real point has a single real (floating-point) value
referenced by the setpoint.
Rename
Enhanced ENVOX rename functionality supports rename of tags in all
configuration tables including Control Designer tables.

Resource
Resource is an IEC term equivalent to a PROVOX SR90 or SRX controller.
Resource Explorer
A device view launched from the System Explorer of the configuration database
from a device perspective.
Resume
A resume block translates directly into the FST resume instruction.
Root
In the Control Desktop explorers, you can set a root in the explorer tree so that
only information below that point in the tree appears in the explorer window pane.
Scrollable Extent
The area of the window in Control Designer where you can place or move
blocks. The scrollable extent is one page greater than the diagram extent in both
height and width.
Selection Toolbar
In Control Designer, a list of all the items in a specific Group from which you can
select an item to place on the diagram.
Server Setup
A utility that you can use to set up the CDOS Open Server(s) and SYBASE SQL
Server(s) you require when you use Control Desktop. This is automatically
launched when you install Control Desktop.
SQL
Abbreviation: Structured Query Language
Standard Functions
These are the functions and function blocks which are provided as part of the
Function Block Editor. Many of these functions/function blocks are a subset of
IEC 1131 standard. You cannot edit standard functions.

Glossary
Status Bar
The bottom of the window of most Control Desktop modules and utilities contains
a status bar. This shows information such as quick help on the object being
selected or highlighted.
Streams
A series of data fields separated by commas (CDV format), representing a
configuration item. Streams begin with a keyword called an identifying field. This
keyword identifies the stream type (for example, UOC_GROUP). Streams end
with the keyword END.
Structured Query Language (SQL)
A language which provides a user interface to relational database management
systems. It is often embedded in other programming languages. A user can
create an SQL query in order to obtain specific information from the database.
Substreams
A series of data fields within a stream, separated by commas (CDV format) that
begins with a keyword, and continues until the next keyword.
Sybsystemprocs Database
Used in SYBASE SYSTEM 10. It is the database which holds stored procedures
that were previously held in the master database. It is created by SYBASE when
SYBASE is installed.
Table
A collection of records in a relational database.
Target Device
Any system device that receives point information, commonly a display device
that shows the information to an operator.
Task
The control element that provides periodic execution of the signal processing
functions required by the control strategy. A Control Designer task maps directly
to an ENVOX logic control point (LCP).

Glossary
211
Task Daemon
The task daemon is part of the CDOS software and is the name of the process
that handles ancillary tasks such as generate and download. There are client
task daemons, server task daemons, and CHIP daemons in P5.0.
Task Monitor
An integrated utility that displays the status of all jobs currently in the Control
Desktop job queue.
TCP/IP
Acronym: Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol
Tempdb Database
The database in which all temporary tables are created. It is created by SYBASE
when SYBASE is installed.
Template
A pattern for valid relationships among elements of a control strategy, defined
without specifying particular elements. A template permits different specific
elements to use the relationships at different times during the execution of the
control algorithm. The user establishes templates as part of system
configuration. [See Alias Template, DCD Template, and Group Template.]
Text Box
If you want to add some information about a function block diagram to the
diagram itself, you can create a text box to contain this information.
Transact SQL
A subset of SQL commands that you can use to query a SYBASE server.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
212
Glossary
Transaction Log
A log file maintained by the dataserver of all modifications to the database. As
additions, updates, and deletions are performed on data, these changes are
written to the transaction log. Once the changes have been accepted by the user
process and the transaction is complete, the changes are applied to the
appropriate data file in the database. If processing errors or system failures
occur, transactions which have not properly completed are not applied to the
data file, and the memory cache copy of the affected data is restored from the
data file. The transaction log is not the Audit Trail log, but rather contains
SYBASE-only information.
Translate
To convert a diagrammatic control function created in Control Designer into a
format that the plant controller can understand.
Unit
A PROVOX point type. A unit point has many attributes, enabling it to control the
execution of a unit operation.
Upload
The movement of configuration instructions from system devices to a
configuration device or interface. An upload lets the current values of parameters
be incorporated into new configuration source files, eliminating specific user
entry. Uploads also may be used to verify that configuration instructions are
correct.
User Functions
A user function diagram, created with the same drawing methods as program
diagrams, can be used on one or more program diagrams in a current project.
These user-created diagrams can contain standard functions but not other user
functions.
Variable
A variable is an IEC concept for a data type; for example, real, integer, percent,
or Boolean.
Installing ENVOXr Server and Control Desktop (Original — May 2000)
Glossary
213
Variables Editor
A module of Control Designer that you use to define and to edit user variables in
addition to the (standard) system constants. Variables can be local to a specific
program diagram or global and you can set access to them as read-only,
write-only, or read-write.
ViewPDF
This utility displays PDF files on a PC, simulating the appearance of the display
on the console or operator interface. You can use this utility to check the
appearance of a display before saving the display to the database from within
Display Designer.
Where Clause
Sets the search conditions to apply to an SQL query.
Window
A particular type of console display that has a specific purpose. A DDP window,
for example, shows point DDP information. A trend window shows trend set
information. An application window emulates a computer terminal.
A trace utility mode within LCP Trace/Tune, in which accumulator values appear
on the console screen as trace point FST steps execute, but FST execution does
not stop at trace points.
