3 Installing Eloquence on Windows
Configuring Eloquence on Windows
The Windows operating system might require additional configuration after the initial installation of the Eloquence software:
If you installed the Eloquence server software on Windows Server 2003, XP, 2000 or NT additional configuration is required:
- Configure local and remote host names
- Modify the standard configuration of Eloquence service names
- Configure the eloqsd service (Eloquence application server)
- Configure the eloqdb6 service (Eloquence database server)
Configure local and remote host names
Eloquence uses either DNS or a local HOSTS file to resolve IP adresses to host names and vice-versa. Please make sure that the IP address of the local system as well as the IP addresses of all remote systems you intend to use with Eloquence are correctly resolved to their host names (can be checked with the nslookup utility which is included with recent Windows versions). Add any missing IP address along with its host name to your local HOSTS file.
The location of your HOSTS file depends on your Windows version:
For example, to configure a host named "server" with IP address 192.168.1.1, add a line like this to your HOSTS file:
- Windows 2003/XP
- Windows 2000/NT
- Windows 95
Modify the standard configuration of Eloquence service names
The installation program appends the following Eloquence specific TCP service definitions to your local SERVICES file:
# Eloquence related services
runsrv 8010/tcp # Eloquence RUNSRV (Windows integration)
eloqdlg 8011/tcp # Eloquence dialog
eloqsd 8100/tcp # Eloquence A.06.xx eloqsd server
eloqdb 8102/tcp # Eloquence A.06.xx data base server
eloqdb5 8104/tcp # Eloquence A.06.xx ELOQDB5 server
where the first column specifies the service name (eg. runsrv) and the second column the associated port number and protocol (eg. 8010/tcp). The installation program takes care that the selected port numbers are not already used otherwise.
In rare cases it might be necessary to modify this standard configuration, for example if the port numbers do not match those configured on other systems.
The location of your SERVICES file depends on your Windows version:
NOTE: All systems must use the same port numbers in order to communicate.
- Windows 2003/XP
- Windows 2000/NT
- Windows 9x/ME:
Configure the eloqsd service
If you intend to run the Eloquence application server on your system additional configuration is required. This is described in detail in the next section.
NOTE: If the only Eloquence component you intend to use is the database, you don't need to configure and run the eloqsd service.
- Grant the Log on as a batch job right for all users who are using the eloqsd service
- Edit the eloqsd.cfg, eloqsd.user and eloqsd.share configuration files
- Select a startup mode for the eloqsd service
- Start the eloqsd service
NOTE: The Windows Group Policy Editor is required to grant the Log on as a batch job user right. Since this is not available on Windows XP Home Edition the eloqsd service cannot be used on XP Home.
Configure the eloqdb6 service
If you intend to run the Eloquence database server on your system additional configuration is required. This is described in detail in a following section.
- Edit the eloqdb6.cfg configuration file
- Create a data base environment (not covered in this document)
- Select a startup mode for the eloqdb6 service
- Start the eloqdb6 service
