Error description

  • When opening a RMF module in DWA, some DXL columns (or
    attributes) may return errors if the interop is not started with
    RMF.
    Unfortunately RMF installation guide is missing any information
    about how to configure DWA in order to publish some RMF modules.
    
    To publish RMF modules through DWA, the interop processes need
    to run RMF scripts, by:
    1) either setting up RMF on the host running the interops
    2) or starting the interops with RMF scripts from another
    computer (provided those scripts are available through the
    network).
    
    On Windows:
    Simply run RMF setup either in "full installation" mode to set
    up RMF on the host running the interops, or in "workstation
    installation" mode if you prefer to rely on the scripts set up
    on another computer.
    
    On Linux:
    As RMF setup is only available for Windows you need to copy the
    required files from an existing setup of RMF on Windows.
    1) "full installation"
    To achieve a full installation of RMF, you need to copy the
    "irdrmfao", "trek", "plm" directories from an existing setup of
    RMF on Windows (in $RMFHOME\lib\dxl\addins) and paste those
    three directories in the home directory of the interop (in
    $DOORHOME\lib\dxl\addins)
    
    2) "workstation installation"
    To achieve a "workstation installation" (and therefore rely on
    an existing setup of RMF), you need to start the interop with
    the switch -a followed by the path to the "dxl" directory of RMF
    setup.
    For instance: -a "//serverXYZ/RMF_6109/lib/dxl"
    
    In both installation modes, you also need to copy one file from
    an existing installation of DOORS with RMF:
    $DOORSHOME\lib\dxl\batchStartupFiles\irdrmfao.dxl
    and copy it into the same directory under the HOME of the
    interop ($DOORSHOME/lib/dxl/batchStartupFiles).
