Not a clue.
Server's in Germany?
Creo 1 bug?
Windchill 10 bug?
Wish I knew.
And removing the cache doesn't fix it? Not that I am advocating that as fix, but in time crunches as the FIRST teams currently are in, does clearing the cache regain access?
Feeling for those of you struggling with this, but I don't have Creo 1.0 student version installed to take a look.
I haven't really seen much performance advantages in deleting the cache. This thing has me completely stumped.
Sometimes it's almost impossible to reach the server from school (like today), other times it seems to work fine.
Last night working on my personal network, I lost connection to the server and never got it back.
Now, it's working beautifully.
If you delete your local cache, all the changes you did not upload or check-in is GONE.
We get that error ALL day long. It's a real drag, makes it near impossible to get anything done. My advice if you keep getting that and can't get it fixed (we can't either), manually go offline and STAY offline until you absolutely need to move files around, then get right back offline again. If the HAL9000 isn't looking for the server, it's not going to hang up. Kind of defeats the purpose of HAVING a vaulting system though, doesn't it?
I don't recall see you on here before. Which team are you involved with?
Anyway, my experience with WC10 is very random! Last night I probably spent 2 hours doing a LOT of check-outs and check-ins with no problems whatsoever.
The previous night in the same location, I found it almost impossible to connect to the server and check out anything.
Yesterday from the school, I did exactly what you mentioned and worked offline all day because I never got a connection, aside from in an independant browser.
Stu from Buzz 175 back again. Still same issues.
Loaded a laptop with Creo1 last night at the High School. Made recommended changes from Adam Haas. Tried to connect (add server) to Windchill (via schools wireless/54Mbps) and never was even able to reach the server.
This AM from work; deleted my .wf and .creo directories; started CREO, logged successfully onto Windchill; imported some files from disk to a Workspace, open models in Creo; closed Creo session; restarted Creo session; "The server is currenly unavailable. Do you want to work offline?"
Enough said. So glad the KOP online in our Project!!! Maybe we'll only model our internally designed parts & assemblies and forgot modeling a complete bot.
But now my few CAD students are building/assembling the real bot so the only design resources are a few semi-proficient Creo CAD guys. NOT THE DESIRED INTENT OF GETTING THE KIDS TO DO THE WORK!
I feel for you! Week 4 is no time to be figuring out problems with the CAD system.
I've had completely random luck with connecting to the server. I believe I've connected from all locations (home, school and work), and also been completely shut out at all locations. I usually go through a series of hitting "No" several times when it asks if I want to go offline. If that doesn't work, I completely shut down Creo and start again. I've also set the server to work offline, shut down Creo, start again and then set it to Online. A thoroughly confusing shell game, but ultimately I usually get it to work.
One question. It sounds like you're not able to get the KOP because it's in Windchill. Any reason you don't download it again from here http://www.catalogds.com/db/service?d=first&c=browse
Have it all on a stick too but pain to put on each of my machines' local drives.
Also have created a very extensive Standard Parts library of non-KOP, COTS parts. Nuts, bolts, gears, AndyMark parts....... that I cannot get to in session. Can download via external browser, but that's not the way to build assemblies!
