Local Area Network and Server Settings
Local Area Network (LAN) is a computer network covering a local area, such as a home or office. Before you proceed, the Server Module needs to be installed.

First you need to connect all your computers using a hub or better still, a switch which is much faster especially if you run a database that produces alot of network traffic. To set up connections to other computers, please refer to Windows documentation.

  1. Install ADI-diary on all computers you want to run the diary.
  2. Decide which computer becomes the server.
  3. Generally you should choose the most powerful computer in your office.
  4. On each client computer go to Server menu and select Local Area Network.
  5. On the right side of Database input box click ellipsis button
  6. Click My Network Places
  7. Click Entire Network
  8. Click Microsoft Windows Network
  9. Open Workgroup
  10. Select computer name which is your server
  11. Select ADI-diary
  12. Select Data
  13. Click OK

The Database input box should now display:
\\ComputerName\ADI-diary 2010\Data
You also can type it directly into Database input box

Please note: \\ComputerName\ADI-diary 2010\Data must have read and write permission. To set up the permissions, please refer to Windows documentation.

Select LAN Notification check box. If any change is done on any of the client computers or server itself, LAN Notification will make sure that all operators can see the changes immediately.

Advance Settings

Use the Timeout to specify the amount of time, in milliseconds, ADI-diary will wait between retries of a record lock. The number of times that a lock is retried is controlled by the Retry Count

In a busy multi-user application it may be necessary to increase these values in order to relieve lock contention and provide for smoother concurrency between multiple users. However, in most cases the default values should work just fine.

Explicit Records Lock

When a user edits a record, it will be automatically locked by the system. Other users can read the record but not edit it until the record is saved. Explicit records lock is performed by the system itself during certain operations. You can view the list of locked records in Explicit Records Locks Page.
