Link to Alternate Data Server

The IRM.Net can link to alternate data servers (not multiple; but one alternate at a time).  The IRM.Net checks for a Path=\\ServerName\RDPRootPath parameter.  Example: Path=\\MyDataServer\rdpnt\rdp\

UserHTML, UserText, and Images

The UserHtml, UserText and Images folders are always under the custom folder, and there is always a folder named after the dataserver and at least one RDPxx folder (RDP01). There may be RDP02 (second directory), RDP03 (third directory), etc., if applicable.

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP01\UserHtml
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP01\UserText
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP01\Images\Rooms
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP01\Images\Rooms\Gallery

The following represents a second resort directory RDP02:

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP02\UserHtml
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP02\UserText
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP02\Images\Rooms
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP02\Images\Rooms\Gallery

RDP ships the UserHtml, UserText, etc., folders which are used by RPD's demo files under \IRMNet\Custom\RDPDemo\RDP01\.

Another example would be linking to multiple data servers from one marketing site and the IRM.Net server.  Notice there is one IRM.Net server, two RDPData Servers, and four different RDP resorts/directories.

Irm.resortdata.com\irmnet\res\resmain.aspx?path=\\rdp2008a\rdpnt\rdp\&resort=01
Irm.resortdata.com\irmnet\res\resmain.aspx?path=\\rdp2008a\rdpnt\rdp\&resort=02

Irm.resortdata.com\irmnet\res\resmain.aspx?path=\\rdpirm\rdp1202\&resort=97
Irm.resortdata.com\irmnet\res\resmain.aspx?path=\\rdpirm\rdp1202\&resort=98

The images, descriptions, usertext, etc. would reside in the following folders on the IRM.Net server.

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\irmnet\custom\rdp2008a\rdp01\..
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\irmnet\custom\rdp2008a\rdp02\..

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\irmnet\custom\rdpirm\rdp97\..
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\irmnet\custom\rdpirm\rdp98\..
Newsletters\BlockReasons
Newsletters and BlockReasons, etc., are located below the UserText folder for that server\resort. 
For example:
\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP01\UserText\OwnerNewsletters
\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP01\UserText\BlockReasons
Large and Small Images
Large and small image pairs for implementing the clickable images are located below the UserText folder for that server\resort.
For example:
\IRMNet\Custom\ServerName\RDP01\Images\Rooms\Gallery
Custom Room Type Order
In the case of multiple resort directories, specify separate custom room type orders for the individual directories.   IRM.Net first looks for C:\inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\RoomTypeOrder.txt.  If not found, then it looks for C:\inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\Custom\<data server>\rdpxx\roomtypeorder.txt
