Share a Library Between Applications (Linux Only)

If two or more software applications (on one or multiple machines), are configured to use the same library, then you must use the following procedure to enable the library to be shared and to prevent media being overwritten when these applications are used. This task must be performed when the Configuration Wizard (CW) is run during initial StorNext setup and configuration. For more information on using the CW, see Configure StorNext Using the StorNext GUI.

Caution: Quantum strongly recommends using library partitioning features to present each application using the library with its own virtual library. Unless partitioning is used, two applications sharing the robot arm, drives and slots may over-write each others data.

Use the following instructions only if library partitioning is not an option.

Note: For library sharing to be effective, the steps in the following procedure must be performed in the order in which they are presented.
