Automatically registering correct Windchill Server from Pro/E WF4
We are looking to move to Windchill PDMLink 10. This is our first Windchill implementation and I have some concerns about registering the server from Pro/E. We have over 500 users and while most will be able to set the server properly, there will be a percentage that will either not read directions or find creative ways to mess this up.
Has anyone been able to successfully register the Windchill server from Pro/Engineer automatically through batch or any other means that is transparent to the user?
Currently we are still using Intralink 3.4 and I have a feeling that this is adding to the problem during testing since I often receive messages that the server is offline, even though I can connect through a standalone browser.
Re: Automatically registering correct Windchill Server from Pro/E WF4
I have not tried this myself, but this could be done with a Pro/E trail file. The only interuprt would be supplying server credentials which is not captured in the Pro/E trail file. This would only give you 1/2 of the registration process because the user would still need to authenticate, choose a workspace and pick OK.
