How Search & Retrieve Interacts with Rimage

As illustrated in the diagram below, when a Search and Retrieve job is executed, Search and Retrieve sends data to the Export folder on the local system and an Order file to the Network Publisher Order Files folder on the Rimage computer. Rimage takes care of the rest. In the diagram, the label file resides on the Rimage computer, but it can easily reside on any networked computer that Rimage has access and security permissions to.

Folder Access and Permissions Settings

To enable Rimage Export functionality, the Rimage Network Publisher must be installed and running on the network, and the Rimage Orders folder must be visible from the computer where Search and Retrieve is running. Check the following:

There is a Rimage export folder on the Search and Retrieve client desktop computer.
Search and Retrieve users have write access to the export folder and Rimage has at least read permissions.
Security is set for domain users to have full control.

Rimage Export Configuration Window

Configure Search and Retrieve for Rimage export using the Rimage Export Configuration window. This process enables you to export or save files to a Rimage system.

Access the Rimage Export Configuration window from the Search and Retrieve Advanced menu.

1.To enable export to Rimage, from the Search and Retrieve Advanced menu, select Rimage Export Configuration.

You must enable export to Rimage. If you do not enable it, Rimage does not activate as an option on the Set Retrieval Options tab in the Where do you want to write the retrieved files box.

2.Select the Enable Rimage Export checkbox. This enables the rest of the boxes in the window.
