We are setup with a Solaris Unix server running the Oracle/Intralink database, file server and license server. The Intralink client is running on a Sun workstation (along with Pro/E). Is it possible to run an Intralink client from a windows box and still get to the files, or in other words have the same setup as I have on the unix box?
I have been able to get Pro/E running on my windows box by pinging the FlexM license server (running on Unix) so this is a start. In order to fully transition to a windows box I need Intralink running and getting to the database and files.
What would need to be done? Would a Samba server have to be setup?
Does any one work in such a dual platform environment? Some designers on windows and some on Unix?
The main issues is the Admins set up the client boxes to run everything off a slow server: This includes Pro/E, Intralink, trail files, everything. It makes our Sunblade 2000 boxes very, very slow. I noticed a big difference running Pro/E locally on a PIII 800. Also, no wheel mouse support by sun and lots of other quirky (GRAPHICS) issues with the Unix boxes make them undesirable right now.
