Required:

ONYXPLUS
ONYX 1.2.0.3 or newer
ALSO SEE: What is required to run ONYX?
Port number 27005 is used by ONYXPlus.
Available:

ONYXPLUS: Installation files supplied when purchased
ONYX 1.2.0.3: Install CD shipped with USB tap
Updates is available on the internet:
[www.datatex.co.za -> downloads -> software updates -> onyx]
Overview:

With this setup all ONYX user will have access to the central database,
and therefore have access to all the recordings in the database.

Recordings are made with an USB tap on each workstation and saved to a
central location.

ONYX and ONYXPLUS is installed by default in the "C:\Program Files\Datatex\ONYX"
folder. It is not meant to run on the same PC.

Setup:

Install the ONYXPLUS.
ALSO SEE:How to install and configure ONYXPLUS
Disable the ONYXLINES service (since there is no recording cards).
[START -> SETTINGS -> CONTROL PANEL -> ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS -> SERVICES]
One of the items wil be "ONYX LINES".
Select it and click on the stop option.
Right-click on ONYXLines, select PROPERTIES, then the GENERAL tab,
set "Startup Type" to "disable".

The Windows user on the ONYX+ PC must have full control over the ONYX
folder.

ONYX_Sweeper.ini

The ONYX_Sweeper.ini file only gets created once the ONYXSweeper is run. To
do this, go to
[START -> SETTINGS -> CONTROL PANEL -> ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS -> SERVICES]
and Right-Click on ONYX Sweeper. Select Start. Now go to
C:\Program Files\Datatex\ONYX\. There you will find the ONYX_Sweeper.ini.
Make the following changes to it:

[PATHS]
DATAPATH=\\cardserver\Onyx\data\
WORKPATH=\\cardserver\Onyx\temp\
INCOMPLETEPATH=C:\Program Files\Datatex\Onyx\incomplete\
DATABASE=cardserver:C:\Program Files\Datatex\Onyx\ONYX.FDB
[PORTS]
LISTENPORT=27005

Make sure the ONYX folder is shared on the network.
Use the network path for the datapath and workpath folder, in the format;
"\\" followed by the PCNAME, then "\", followed by the ShareName, then "\"
and the folder location)
For the database path, use the format:
IPAddress, followed by ":", followed by the drive, followed by ":" and
the database location.

DATABASE=cardserver:C:\Program Files\Datatex\Onyx\ONYX.FDB

Install the ONYX on the various work stations (with the USB tap).
ALSO SEE: What is required to run ONYX?
In ONYX under SETTINGS (for each instance of ONYX):
Tick "Enable ONYX + connection".
Enter the extension number for this workstation.
The WORKPATH and DATAPATH has default file locations. You can
change these locations for the local paths in ONYX under SETTINGS.

Example of an ONYX.INI file

[RECORD]
WORKPATH=C:\Program Files\Datatex\Onyx\work\
DATAPATH=C:\Program Files\Datatex\Onyx\Data\


Conclude:

With this setup you will be able to access all your recordings from
any one of the ONYX programs installed. No recordings can be listened
to from ONYXPlus. In this case ONYX_Config programs is used to do the
configuration and load calls into the central database (ONYX_Sweeper).
