multiple PDMLink servers

Gurus,



Is there any special setup required to use multiple PDMLink servers? I've been using one local server and now I am starting a project where the server is offsite and connected thru VPN. Can I bounce back and forth from server to server without worrying about data corruption since my cache is all going to the same place? I'm using one batch file to launch CREO and set the cache folder. I've noticed some sluggishness and some weird computer related things that "could" be attributed to VPN issues but I'm worried that maybe CREO does not like being redirected all the time. Have you experienced any problems when registering multiple PDMLink servers and bouncing back and forth?



CREO 2.0 m040

Windchill 10.0 m030





Thanks,

Eric

I don't use the same cache for different servers. PTC seems to think you can, but I don't think it's safe.

I do this:
[cid:image001.png@01CF1209.CD34F800]

My complete startup script looks something like this:

* tskill creoagent

* del "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\PTC\Creo\Platform\2.30\agent\ServerMgr\.srv_mgr_db.fldx"

* attrib -R "C:\ptc\Creo 2.0\Common Files\m090\text\config.pro"

* attrib -R "C:\ptc\Creo 2.0\Common Files\m090\text\config.sup"

* echo y|copy "P:\Creo 2.0\ environment1_configs\config.pro" "C:\ptc\Creo 2.0\Common Files\m090\text\config.pro"

* echo y|copy "P:\Creo 2.0\ environment1_configs\config.sup" "C:\ptc\Creo 2.0\Common Files\m090\text\config.sup"

* attrib +R "C:\ptc\Creo 2.0\Common Files\m090\text\config.pro"

* attrib +R "C:\ptc\Creo 2.0\Common Files\m090\text\config.sup"

* echo y|copy "%USERPROFILE%\pro\Creo_2_home\configs\user\my_config.pro" "%USERPROFILE%\pro\Creo_2_home\config.pro"

* echo f|xcopy "P:\Creo 2.0\environment1_configs\creo_parametric_customization.ui" "%USERPROFILE%\pro\Creo_2_home\cache\PDMLink_cache\PTC\ProENGINEER\.Settings\creo_parametric_customization.ui" /y /r

* set PTC_WF_ROOT=%USERPROFILE%\pro\creo_2_home\cache\ environment1_cache\PTC\ProENGINEER

* set PTC_HELP_CENTER_URL=C:\ptc\Creo 2.0\Help\help\creo_help

* del "%USERPROFILE%\pro\creo_2_home\*.log*"

* del "%USERPROFILE%\pro\creo_2_home\*.xml*"

By the way, I see you're on an m040

PTC changed the APPDATA location where they are storing default from Roaming to Local.

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\PTC <--M030
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\PTC <-- M050

I don't know where it is in m040 since we didn't install it.

Also the rev number directory changes with each revision, so I show below it's in 2.30, but that's for m090. M030 was 2.11, m050 was 2.19. Not sure what it was in m040.
