Post Installation Check

Once installation is done, reboot your machine, login as root.
Verify installation with dlConfigCheck

In Terminal:
dlConfigCheck

Note OK for all parameters, and if there are any FAIL indicators make sure that:
A) Any missing hardware actually applies to your configuration
B) Any FAIL indicators are not related to one of the following…

1) Verify Managed Media Directory on your Framestore.

Stop Stone+Wire (if not stopped already)
In Terminal:
/etc/init.d/stone+wire stop

Next, assuming a machine name of flame01, the path to your framestore should be:

/mnt/StorageMedia/flame01/p7

If directory path to your framestore is not yet present, execute the following:
In Terminal:
mkdir -p /mnt/StorageMedia/flame01/p7
chown -R root:users /mnt/StorageMedia/flame01/p7
chmod -R 775 /mnt/StorageMedia/flame01/p7

If your /mnt/StorageMedia/flame01/p7 directory path is present from a prior installation, it’s often a good idea to run the chown and chmod commands to make sure ownership and permissions are set correctly.

2) Verify Stone + Wire Configuration.

Stop Stone+Wire (if not stopped already)
In Terminal:
/etc/init.d/stone+wire stop

Open Stone+Wire Config file
In Terminal:
nano /usr/discreet/sw/cfg/stone+wire.cfg

Check that the following keyword entries are present and uncommented out (the preceeding ‘#’ has been removed) :

[Partition7]
Name=XFS_SSD
Path=/mnt/StorageMedia/flame01/p7

Where:
Partition7 is the partition ID.
Name is the array name.
Path is the directory path to the managed media folder on the framestore.

Press Ctrl+X, to Exit nano.
Press Y, then Enter to commit changes to /usr/discreet/sw/cfg/stone+wire.cfg

3) Verify Framestore Map ID is set in sw_storage.cfg.

Stop Stone+Wire (if not stopped already)
In Terminal:
/etc/init.d/stone+wire stop

Get Framestore Map ID
In Terminal:
grep "FRAMESTORE" /usr/discreet/sw/cfg/sw_framestore_map

Note the ID Number “ID=xxx”

Open sw_storage.cfg
InTerminal:
nano /usr/discreet/sw/cfg/sw_storage.cfg

Verify “ID=xxx” is correct.  If not, set it to the correct value.

Press Ctrl+X, to Exit nano.
Press Y, then Enter to commit changes to /usr/discreet/sw/cfg/sw_storage.cfg

4) Configure Wire self-discovery
In Terminal:
nano /usr/discreet/sw/cfg/sw_probed.cfg

Check that the following keyword entries are present and uncommented out (the preceeding ‘#’ has been removed) :

Servers0=localhost
Delay=5
SyncInterval=300
Port=7001
SelfDiscovery=yes
Scope=linkLocal

Press Ctrl+X, to Exit nano.
Press Y, then Enter to commit changes to /usr/discreet/sw/cfg/sw_probed.cfg

5) Enable Remote Access to Clip Libraries
In Terminal:
nano /etc/exports

Add the following line to the /etc/exports file if not already present:
/usr/discreet *(rw, sync, no_root_squash)

Press Ctrl+X, to Exit nano.
Press Y, then Enter to commit changes to /etc/exports

6) Verify Configuration of Wiretap server
In Terminal:
nano /usr/discreet/wiretap/cfg/wiretapd.cfg

Required IP Addresses are usually added automatically during installation.
However, If needed, specify any additional IP addresses Wiretap should broadcast over for self-discovery, for example:

IP1=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Press Ctrl+X, to Exit nano.
Press Y, then Enter to commit changes to usr/discreet/wiretap/cfg/wiretapd.cfg

7) When finished, Restart Stone+Wire
In Terminal:
/etc/init.d/stone+wire restart

Configure Backburner Services

In Terminal:
chkconfig –-list | grep -i backburner_server

Look for the following output:
backburner_server 0:off 1:off 2:on3:on4:on5:on6:off

If Backburner is not set to ‘on’ for levels 3,4,5, type the following to enable it:
/etc/init.d/backburner_server restart

Licensing

Make sure to copy the DL_license.dat file for your workstation to the FlexLM licenses folder.

In Terminal:
cd /usr/local/flexlm/licenses

Drag your DL_license.dat file to the Licenses directory.
You will need a DL_License.dat file whether you are using Node Locked Licenses or a Network License Server.

If you do not have a DL_license.dat file you will need to generate one using the Autodesk License Wizard or see your administrator.

Go to: Red Hat Menu > Autodesk > License Wizard
Install the DKU Again (Optional)
Once Flame Premium configuration files are in place and verified, it is often recommended that you run the DKU once more so it can scan your complete configuration and install or modify any files are kernel modules with all hardware in place.
