E. The notifd2db utility

E.1 The notifd2db utility usage (For Tango releases lower than 8)

The notifd2db utility is used to pass to Tango the necessary information for the Tango servers or clients to build connection with the CORBA notification service. Its usage is:
notifd2db [notifd2db_IOR_file] [host] [-o Device_server_database_file_name] [-h]

The [notifd2db_IOR_file] parameter is used to specify the file name used by the notification service to store its main IOR. This parameter is not mandatoty. Its default value is /tmp/rdfact.ior. The [host] parameter is ued to specify on which host the notification service should be exported. The default value is the host on which the command is run. The [-o Device_server_database_file_name] is used in case of event and device server started with the file as database (the -file device server command line option). The file name used here must be the file name used by the device server in its -file option. The [-h] option is just to display an help message. Notifd2db utility usage example:
to register notification service on the current host using the default notifictaion service IOR file name.
notifd C:\Temp\nd.ior
to register a notification service with IOR file named C:\Temp\nd.ior.

notifd -o /var/my_ds_file.res
to register notification service in the /var/my_ds_file.res file used by a device server started with the device server -file command line option.
