Abstract

Disclosed in a method for displaying all references to other Remote Procedure Call (RPC) objects made from any RPC service group or configuration profile object. RPC administration involves managing three types of objects within the distributed computing environment. . Server Entries, which specify the location of a given service interface in the network and the bindings it supports. . Service Groups, which contain a list of server entries or other service groups which provide services in the network. . Configuration Profiles, which contain a list of server entries, service groups or other configuration profiles that provide services in the network. They also define a priority search order to use when locating and using a given service interface binding in the network.

Showing All Service Group and Configuration File References to a Remote Procedure Call Object

       Disclosed in a method for displaying all references to
other Remote Procedure Call (RPC) objects made from any RPC service
group or configuration profile object.  RPC administration involves
managing three types of objects within the distributed computing
environment.
       .  Server Entries, which specify the location of a given
service interface in the network and the bindings it supports.
       .  Service Groups, which contain a list of server entries or
other service groups which provide services in the network.
       .  Configuration Profiles, which contain a list of server
entries, service groups or other configuration profiles that provide
services in the network.  They also define a priority search order to
use when locating and using a given service interface binding in the
network.

      For any given object, references could be made to the object
from other service groups or configuration profiles within the
namespace of the network.  Since all administration prior to this has
been performed from a command line, there has been no way of
discovering all references to a given object by other service groups
or configuration profiles without manually searching through all
service groups or configuration profiles and listing their contents.
This function has not been provided in prior art for RPC
administration in a distributed comp...
