Haven't ever experience this and haven't had to. Simply either save as template internally or export as file.<br /><br />From: Joseph Cugini [mailto:-]<br />Sent: Monday, May 23, 2011 11:07 AM<br />To: Lockwood,Mike,IRVINE,R&D<br />Cc: -<br />Subject: [solutions] - RE: Using Product Templates<br /><br />Mike,<br />When I try to do a "save-as" of the product a folder gets created in the following location: c:\ptc\windchill_9.1\windchill\loadXMLFiles\content\CSE\<save-as name="><br /><br />While the directories get created I do not see any xml files.<br /><br />Can you confirm this behavior?<br /><br /><br />From: Lockwood,Mike,IRVINE,R&D [mailto:Mike.Lockwood@AlconLabs.com]
Item 3. I've never seen this behavior in an OOTB installation, but my current test system is an older 9.1 release and there could have been a template change I'm not aware of. The General Product Template creates folders, but not domains associated with those folders. Even if domains were to be created, there would not necessarily be any access rules defined OOTB for those. Remember, OOTB templates are starting points to configure a solution that fits your business requirements.
It is certainly possible that your template has been modified from its OOTB state.
