Hello,

Is it possible to prevent the distribution of $U objects to a specific MU?

    Hi,

    Yes it is, in the latest versions of Dollar Universe, as of release V523 with FX24450 or higher.

    And here is how to do it :)

    Example of configuration:

    - A Dollar Universe Application Server (DUAS) V523 on Windows. used as a CONSOLE
    - A DUAS V513 (or higher) on a UNIX or Windows box, used as SOURCE of the distribution
    - A DUAS V513 (or higher) on another UNIX or Windows box, used as TARGET of the distribution

    Imagine that you want to prevent the distribution to the TARGET_MU that resides on the TARGET node.

    0. Upgrade the CONSOLE to V523 + FX24450 or higher if necessary
    1. Update the security file on the SOURCE node as in the example below:


    #

    # Management Unit Object
    MANAGEMENT_UNIT=TARGET_MU
    +
    DISPLAY
    #

    # Management Unit Object
    MANAGEMENT_UNIT=*
    +
    CREATE
    DISPLAY
    UPDATE
    DELETE_OBJ
    DISTRIBUTE
    MANAGE_EXCHANGEDATA
    USE_AS_PREREQUISITE
    USE_TO_DISTRIBUTE_TO
    USE_WITHIN_LAUNCH
    USE_WITHIN_HDP
    USE_WITHIN_TASK
    USE_WITHIN_SESSION
    #

    It is important that MANAGEMENT_UNIT=TARGET_MU appears above the generic MANAGEMENT_UNIT=*.

    2. Stop and restart Dollar Universe on SOURCE
    3. Close all Dollar Universe GUIs on the CONSOLE
    4. Relaunch the GUI on the CONSOLE

    If you try to distribute an object from SOURCE to TARGET_MU, you should not see TARGET_MU as a possible distribution target.

    Hope this helps

    Hey Kenny,

    I could test your solution as I have the adequate release. :)

    It all works fine, thanx!
