System Management


VA FileMan is designed to be used either with Kernel or as a stand-alone application running under a variety of implementations of ANSI standard M. If VA FileMan is used without Kernel, the basic DBMS features of VA FileMan all work as described in the manuals. However, there are some features (e.g., bulletin-type cross-references, print queuing, and filegrams) that do not work without portions of Kernel. Whenever Kernel is needed to support a particular VA FileMan feature, that fact is mentioned in the manuals.

The installation of VA FileMan V. 22.0 is not integrated with the installation of Kernel. The "VA FileMan Installation Guide" contains instructions on how to install VA FileMan, both for stand-alone sites and for sites running Kernel.
