Cluster Installation

01 June 2006 - 02:30 AM

G'Day Guys,

I wanted some feedback on the feasibility of the following set-up. My client needs to create a production standby system, and, due to hardware and other constraints, is proposing that a cluster of Unix machines, including Machines 1 and 2, will be used. Machine 1 will have an installation of PRO-IV with two associated PRO-IV applications, and Machine 2 will have an installation of PRO-IV with one associated PRO-IV application. All versions of PRO-IV will be the same. The /etc directory will be a shared directory, and therefore pro4.ini will be common to Machines 1 and 2. The main questions relate to installation keys. Can two seperate installs of the same PRO-IV version be handled within one pro4.ini ? If not, is it possible to locate the pro4.ini locally to the installation ?

Thanks in advance


v5,5 Installation Advice

16 August 2004 - 05:31 AM

G'Day Everyone,

We're in the process of upgrading Oracle, and as such we need to upgrade PRO-IV. Unfortunately Oracle 9.2 won't run on our current development box, and we have no budget to either upgrade or change the hardware. Therefore we're looking to install a development version on one of our Test/Migration UNIX boxes, which currently has a run-time installation.


What are the implications of running both development and run-time versions of PRO-IV 5.5 on the same box ? I'm thinking specifically of licensing issues, but any other information people may have would be gratefully received.

I know that this is a question that should probably be addressed directly to PRO-IV, but as they only have a third-party presence in Australia, it is far easier and quicker for me to do this here. Oh, and please, no agents.



Oracle 9i & Alpha Tru64

30 January 2003 - 12:51 AM

G'Day People,

I was hoping that someone may be able to give me some idea of when Oracle 9i will be available for Alpha Tru64 with either PRO-IV 5.0 or 5.5. According to PRO-IV's Supported Platforms table, it is 'to be advised', which gives me some hope that it may be soon.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

G'Day Rob,

I cannot seem to reply to any posts. An attempt to Preview or Post results in an Error on Page message. Is this just me ? Like a personal vendetta or something ?

For Joseph: COMMIT Processing

08 August 2001 - 09:55 PM

G'Day Joseph,

You are right about an implicit COMMIT being issued on exit of the function, but this is on 'successful' completion of the function. If you are experiencing a divide by zero which is stopping processing, then PRO-IV treats this as a FATAL error, and any inserts, updates or deletes made to Oracle tables are ROLLedBACK to the last COMMIT point. This is normal and correct processing.

If you wish to save the change to the Order after every successful iteration of the report, then you will need to use an explicit COMMIT in logic. Without seeing the structure of the Update function, then I would say that this could be placed in After Write No Error on the Order table.
