Installing and Configuring PDM/Link

We've decided to jump in with both feet and give this a shot. Yes, our
server is marginal, our timeline is too short and we don't know enough.
We are likely to fail at first, but this is something we've wanted to
try for a long time but haven't had the means. We have an opportunity
here and we want to take it. If it completely fails, well, we are no
worse than we are now. I'm fairly optimistic that we can get something
useable running.



Monday IT is going to install SQL and then we'll install PDMLink 9.1.
We're going with 9.1 for two reasons. 1 - It provides compatibility from
WF3 to Creo 2.0, eventually. Our immediate need is WF4, but we have
clients on WF3 through WF5 with one planning to go to Creo 1.0 this
quarter. 2 - It seems to be slightly better matched to our hardware. If
we're likely to have better success with 10.0, I'm open to that as well.



Now for the stupid question (and perhaps an illustration of how far over
my head I am. :-P). Looking at the download page for PDMLink, there are
a lot of things to download. I assume much of them are optional add-ons.
How much of that do I actually need for an OOTB installation simply to
manage Pro/E files (check in/out, rev control, etc.)? I've downloaded
PDMLink, the Help files, the PTC Solution Installer, Info*Engine and the
Windchill Config Assistant. What else do I need?



I'm thankful for all the help thus far, and all the help I'm likely to
get as I get into this.

Installing and Configuring PDM/Link

You will need everything except the business reporting section and workgroup managers, unless you also plan on other CAD files in PDMLink. You will notice that the 'latest' version of some of those files is not m060/m070, which ever you are usng.

Installing and Configuring PDM/Link

After I sent him the PDF linked below, my IT guy asked me to ask you people
"Can we use SQL Server instead of oracle?".

Thanks,

Installing and Configuring PDM/Link

Let me clarify this question. Which is better? Oracle or SQL Server for
a database?

How do I know if we are licensed for Oracle (seeing how we've been using it
for 13 years or more)?

Personally Oracle gives me the warmfuzzies because of how Intralink3.X has
always been FAST! As a user, performace is always the #1 concern.

Thanks again,
Joe S.

Installing and Configuring PDM/Link

I have heard that 80% of new installs are going on SQLServer and it is faster than Oracle.
Whoever, if you are planning a multiple site, multiple country implementation then use Oracle.
If you must use a Un*x OS, you can only use Oracle.

PTC seems to be pushing the use of Windchill down to the standalone shops with 2-5 seats of Pro/Engineer. In these cases SQLServer is ideal.
This makes the 80% of new installs using SQLServer a valid statement, but is it reality?


Thank you,

R10 upgrade issue

We had a similar issue when upgrading.this is because the password of the
user configured in the JNDI adapter has special characters.

R10 upgrade issue


Upgrade appears to be using wrong credentials to connect to the directory server. Is it active directory?
