Default NexusDB as Service with /SETFULLACCESS

Good day

I am following the installation instructions on installing Nexus and creating a user etc. etc.

Last issue I have is with /SETFULLACCESS.

My application interfaces with a SAGE product running on Pervasive. The SAGE data can be anywhere on the server i.e. C:\PASTEL18 or D:\PASTEL18 or even just in a folder called \PastelData with numerous sub-folders.

It is probably not possible to /SETFULLACCESS to every drive and every folder on the server or on the single workstation if the data is located on a workstation?

What is the implication if I don't set the /SETFULLACCESS parameter? My application worked in the past but I have not tested on many different Windows servers.

Thanks in advance

/SETFULLACCESS works for nxServer only, and is really only intended to
give the nxServer user account read and write access to NexusDB
databases (your clients may wonder why this user account would be given
full access to every drive). Do you have a custom nxServer, that
requires access to Pervasive data?

Thanks Elvind

This Nexus service is as is out of the box. I would not know how to customise it.

I get to the Pervasive data using other controls.

Ericus,

If I may ask, what are you using to access the Pervasive tables?

I was never able to get the old Pervasive Delphi SDK to work reliably.

Thanks kindly.

Morning John

The usual stuff. Some ODBC, some P.SQL SDK and some proprieatry Btrieve access controls.

Which applications do you use that uses P.SQL? I have developed a complete replacement for Sage 50c or Sage Pastel Partner or whatever names they call these things. This enables me to add any kind of customisation on my side, but if the client insist in staying with Pastel50c/Paste Partner then they still get all the data updated therein so they can send that details to their accountant if required.

I can also offer them access to every single module without them haveing to purchase those nodules from SAGE. Their pricing is getting redicoulous.

If you want you can take this conversation private. I am reachable at let at iafrica do com

Regards

Thanks Ericus.

I'm not familiar with those Sage products, but in my case the customer
uses Sage Timberline which is used by home builders. Compared to NexusDB
I've found Pervasive hard to deal with as installed by Sage. I just
wrote code to parse text file import/exports between Timberline and
Nexus apps when I couldn't get ODBC working right. The customer is
likely to move away from Timberline soon due to, as you mentioned, high
maintenance costs.
