The file acenv.sh is one of the two most important configuration files in any Asset Control installation (the other one is ac.ini).
In a typical scenario, acenv.sh would have been generated during the
initial setup of the system via menu.sh
and is located here:
acdba@acbox:~$ ls -l $AC_SYSTEM/bin/acenv.sh -rw-r--r-- 1 acdba acdba 3571 Feb 11 2018 /home/acdba/ac/bin/acenv.sh
It is responsible for setting, amending and exporting environment variables that are needed for Asset Control to be able to start and operate.
There are about 50 environment variables in total of which some of the more important ones are:
|AC_SYSTEM||Root directory of AC installation||/home/acdba/ac|
|AC_DATA||Directory containing datafile trees, vendorfiles etc.||/home/acdba/ac/data|
|AC_FORMDIR||Directory containing Formula Engine formulas||/home/acdba/ac/formulas|
|AC_LOGDIR||Directory containing AC log files||/home/acdba/ac/data/log|
|AC_WORKDIR||Directory containing temp. and intermediate files||/home/acdba/ac/data/workdir|
|AC_QRY_ADDRESS||RPC address of the query server||536870932|
|AC_UPD_ADDRESS||RPC address of the update server||536870931|
|AC_REP_ADDRESS||RPC address of the replicator||536870933|
Typically, you would source acenv.sh in your
.bashrc or similar to ensure these variables are set.
Note, there is also a
acenv.csh for C shell users.
