StoreGazer 4690 Installation

EDJ StoreGazer for the 4690 Operating System consists of two separate applications: EDJServr.286 and EDJAgent.286. It is recommended that EDJAgent is always running. EDJServr will be called to execute when necessary.

The first step in setting up EDJ StoreGazer is to run the install package included on the StoreGazer diskettes using the ‘a:install a:’ command. The installation batch will create the required directories, define several logical filenames, and distribute the StoreGazer files. The installation will prompt you to determine if the EDJAgent application should automatically be configured as a background application.

After StoreGazer is installed on your system, ensure that TCP/IP is available. If TCP/IP is not already installed on your system, please install it using the instructions provided with the TCP/IP installation diskettes.

The files listed below (Host File, SuperServer File, Port File) need to be modified on the 4690 for StoreGazer to work properly. After these files are modified, the EDJAgent configuration file must be updated. Once this is complete, ensure the ‘EDJGazer:EDJAgent.286’ and ‘Adx_spgm:Adxhsi9l.286’ applications are configured to run in the background. After a reboot, StoreGazer will be configured to run.:

Host File – Adxhsihf.dat

  • Open \ADX_SDT1\ADXHSIHF.DAT for editing.
  • At the end of this file add the IP Address followed by the corresponding node ID for each controller in the store (*). Make sure to use the same format used in previous entries defined within the file.
  • Save the file and exit.

Note: To find an IP for a particular controller, view the \ADX_SDT1\ADXIP##Z.BAT file (Replace ## with the controller ID).

Sample file: ADXIPCCZ.BAT


ifconfig lan0.1.1.1

This file shows that the IP Address for Controller CC is Let’s assume there is also an alternate master controller DD, with an IP of For StoreGazer to be able to perform actions on both CC and DD, they should both be defined in the hosts file. Listed below is a sample hosts file.

Sample file: ADXHSIHF.DAT

# /etc/hosts file my4690host fred CC DD

* – If hostnames are already defined for each controller in your store, this step can be skipped. If this is the case, you can use the DefineNode command in the configuration file to map each node ID to the appropriate hostname.

* – If you use dynamic IPs via a BOOTP server, you should enable the ResolveIPsByFile option.

SuperServer File – Adxhsiif.dat

  • Add the following line to the end of this file: edjserv tcp EDJGAZER:edjservr.286
  • Save the file and exit.

Sample file: ADXHSIIF.DAT

ftp tcp ADX_SPGM:adxhsifl.286

telnet tcp ADX_SPGM:adxhsiul.286

edjserv tcp EDJGAZER:edjservr.286


Port File – Adxhsisf.dat

  • At the end of the “# Network services, Internet style” section add the following line: edjserv 1236/tcp
  • Save the file and exit.

Sample file: ADXHSISF.DAT
