All those suffering through the pangs of migration:
We are in the process of migrating from Orbix 3.0.1 to Orbix 2000 1.2.1.
As it turns out, all our clients cannot be converted to Orbix 2000 yet. I
tried reading about the config changes I need to make that's allow these
legacy clients to find Orbix 2000 server (our interfaces remained exact
Now, Orbix 3.0.1 clients relied on 4 different parameters to locate the
server and these were embedded in the config files - (1) server hostname (2)
IT_DAEMON_PORT, (3) IT_DAEMON_SERVER_BASE and (4) IT_NS_PORT.
I am assuming these map to the "new world" of Orbix 2000 as follows:
(1) server hostname = Orbix 2000's Locator hostname
(2) IT_DAEMON_PORT = Orbix 2000's Locator port
(3) IT_DAEMON_SERVER_BASE = No freaking idea!! Need help!
(4) IT_NS_PORT = Orbix 2000's Locator port???
1 - Are these assumptions correct?
2 - What is the value of IT_DAEMON_SERVER_BASE since it is a poa world now?!
3 - What is the impact of using configuration domain services on the server
on the legacy clients?
[The documentation at Iona does not discuss any of these details, and only
instructs putting the following in the common.cfg:
INS = "IOR:4567...";
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
