InfoWorks ICM Remote Results¶
This document will explain how to move the simulation results of one computer to another folder so that the simulation results are available to other pc's.
More information on this can be found in the Help Files.
Menu > Help > Help Topics > Data Management > Remote Roots.
- 1. Set Local Root folders
- 2. Set Remote Roots
- 3. Results Manager
1. Set Local Root folders¶
It's best to keep both the
working and results folder on a local drive of the computer. These folders can grow very large. It is adviced to move them from the system partion to another local drive/partition. (system will work very slow if the disk is almost full)
Menu > Tools > Options¶
Set Working and Results folder to local drive¶
These folder locations can be set to a different location for each client computer.
2. Set Remote Roots¶
Menu > File > Master database settings > Set remote roots¶
Set Remote Results¶
Be sure to set this location to the same location on all client computers. This directory will contain all results of simulations that are "shared" ("Moved to server").
3. Results Manager¶
Master database > right click > Open Results manager¶
Make sure an explorer window is open to see the top level item [Master database]. The Explorer window can be openend through the menu > Window > New explorer window.
Move local Results Files to server¶
All simulations in this Master database are shown here. The Location field show where the files are residing:
- Server: simulation is in the remote results folder
- Local Machine: Simulation results are in your local results folder
- empty: Simulations have been run on another computer and are in that computers local results folder; there is also no date or size specified
Right click any simulation to see the available options. The 4th option
Move Results Files to Server will move the simulation results to the remote results folder.
Confirm move of results¶
Click yes. Files will be moved from you local Results to the Remote Results folder
In the job control window you can follow the process of the move. Wait for the status to change to
Ended before downloading the results on another pc.
Possible error message¶
Confirm move dialog the following 2 error messages can be shown. This can be resolved by changing the ICM Agent Settings. (see below)
ICM Agent settings¶
In order to change the settings you have to stop the service from running (use stop button).
Before you can use the option
Move Results Files to Server you have to configure the agent to run as a coordinator.
- Select the options marked in red
- Click Apply changes
- Start the service again
You can also move the ICM agent
Working folder to a specified location (free up C drive).
