Important: The following information is intended for a system administrator who is familiar with the Linux operating system, understands network operations, and has permissions to properly install and configure the QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions Linux Database Server Manager.

After installing the Linux Database Server Manager RPM, you must perform the following configuration as the root user:

  • Specify the directories on your Linux server that contain the QuickBooks company files.
  • Restart the syslog daemon to start outputting log messages to the qbmonitord log file.

Detailed instructions

Important: To be able to access the QuickBooks company files located on the Linux server from a Windows client, you must list the directories that contain the QuickBooks company files in the qbmonitord.conf file.

To specify the directories that contain the QuickBooks company files:

  1. Open a terminal window.
  2. Edit the /opt/qb/util/qbmonitord.conf file to list the directories that store the QuickBooks company files. Type the full path of each directory on a separate line, for example:

    /QBData
    /QBcompanyfiles

    The qbmonitord daemon monitors the directories you specified in step 2 above. For each directory, the qbmonitord daemon ensures that the correct qbdir.dat file exists.
     
  3. Restart the qbmonitord or qbdbfilemon service.

    Important: The qbmonitord daemon does not monitor subdirectories. Be sure you list subdirectories that contain company files in the qbmonitord.conf file.

Start qbmonitord.log logging

  1. To start outputting log messages to the qbmonitord.log file, restart the syslog daemon after installation.
  2. In a terminal window, enter /etc/init.d/syslog restart and press Enter.

The syslog daemon restarts and begins to log all qbmonitord messages to the qbmonitord.log file.
