- Download the OPClientExpress install and run it on the machine (this is the easiest way to set up an emergency workstation). Run through the install wizard but be sure to check the box to designate this machine as the Emergency Workstation. This will automatically create many of the files described below. In addition, Firebird will be installed on this machine.
- Run through each step of the wizard carefully, entering the IP Address and drive letter for the location of the live database on your server. You can look at Help > About in a connected machine to get the information listed by Path to Medical.gdb.
- For the Firebird installation, make sure to select Super Server, run as service, and uncheck to install the control panel applet if this is a Vista machine.
|Most of these selections will be properly pre-filled except for excluding the applet.|
- As disk space is extremely important for proper set up, make sure that the op911, BAKMED and BAKDOC folders are on a drive with enough space to accommodate the number of scheduled backup and restore jobs set through the OP Backup. For example, all items below could be pointing to the D: or E: drive.
- The op911 folder should contain two subfolders, one gdb_common and one gdbmed. Copy the gdb_common folder from the server to the op911 folder.
- Create another sub-folder of op911 called gdbmed. For example, c:\op911\gdbmed. A restored copy of both the docimage and the medical databases must be in the op911\gdbmed folder. These files should be set up through the OP back up scheduler, under the Restore tab, to make an offline copy of the database. The files will be medical.gdb and docimage.gdb. The opsetup911.ini will be set to point directly to these files on the local machine.
- In the c:\op folder, create a file called op911a.txt.
- In the c:\op911\gdb_common folder, create a file called op911b.txt. You must have all of the subfolders of the main gdb_common folder, as well as the op_lic.ini and the op911b.txt file in the op911\gdb_common folder in order for the offline emergency server to run properly.
- In the C:\OP folder, locate the opsetup911.ini file. Make sure that the NetPath and the NetBEUIPath is set to C:\op911\gdb_common. For the medical database, enter *NetPathMed=localhost:c:\op911\gdbmed* and *NetPathImg=localhost:c:\op911\gdbmed*. (Local host is also setup as 127.0.0.1) This can be set up through the emergency server connection wizard.
- Using OPBackUp Software, either modify an existing job or create a new job which backs up the medical.gdb database and the docimage.gdb from the server onto this workstation. See Backing up Office Practicum for details.
- Test the emergency server by following these steps:
- Open Office Practicum.
- Click No when a pop-up window asks whether to connect to the emergency server instead of the network.
- You should see a red window and the word OFFLINE displayed in the bottom toolbar.
- Go to Help > About to make sure you are pointing at the local machine 127.0.0.1.
- The first time you connect to the machine as the emergency workstation you may have to run the connection wizard, which will require pointing to the gdb_common and gdbmed files, located in the op911 folder on the emergency workstation.
