Service Setup

The service is established in the service namespace defining the demographical information. The associated files are loaded into the DFS. If the service is NOS smart, no additional steps are needed.

If the service is NOS dumb, then the service needs to be wrapped into the NOS. This is accomplished by creating NOS peripheral stubs for the terminal, key board, mouse, hard disk, and any other needed peripherals. The NOS dumb service will be running on a NOS smart machine. When the service is activated, the peripheral stubs will send the information to the requesting customer machine.
