The template I sent you is actually to be used by deftable utility, after having been tailored by sed or any other edit. Personally, I work under windows and found a ssed utility on the web, which accepts the very same syntax as sed.
I don’t understand how you could have problems with firewall:
1°) if you work in the Unix server where your EM is installed, under the EM unix account, there cannot be firewall problems, since you are running in the EM environment.
2°) if you work from windows, you must use a machine where the EM clients (GUI, Desktop, cli) are installed: namely, a machine from where you use the desktop.
As stated in an other topic of the forum, you have to make sure you use the proper connection attributes to run your deftable. If you use the same GUI to address several GUI servers (lets say PROD and TEST), the last connection overrides the config.xml.
If for example, you last log on using:
And you then attempt to deftable on PROD using
deftable –u emprod –p passwordprod –s GUI_PROD –src xxxxx
The connection will fail. To overcome the problem, I use to define as many config.xml as different EM, for axample configTEST.xml and configPROD.xml, then copy the relevant file to config.xml as part of the industrial process.
Basically, you should use your ctmexdef output to:
1°) set a list of exported scheduling tables
2°) tailor one deftable src.xml by merging the template I provided with every scheduling table name found in 1°) above
3°) set up the config.xml
4°) run deftable
5°) run cli –BY_FORCE –TABLE_DOWNLOAD blabla
All of the the above can be fully industrialised.
