Windchill 12 Installation Repository Contains

Windchill 12 Installation Repository Contains

This is the first time I'm installing WC 12.  for the Repository Contains, Users is prechecked but Groups is not.  If I am doing an upgrade from 11.1, should I also check the Groups box?  Do I need to do anything with the User and Group Filter?

When I upgraded from 11.1 M020 CPS22 to 12.0.2.3 I did the following:

  • Users: checked
  • Groups: Unchecked
  • User Filter: uid=*
  • Group Filter: cn=*
    • Actually could have left blank

I have always just left that with the Users check and no filters.

But I have not done a Windchill 11.1 upgrade, just a 11.0 upgrade.

My 11.1 upgrade testing starts in 2 weeks.

 

My 11.0 system uses groups differently than my 11.1 so I may have to rethink this.

@BenLoosli, I have three different systems to upgrade and one uses groups extensively in workflows.  This one doesn't, but should in the future and I want to try and get the three as close to each other as I can from an admin point.

My 11.0 system was set up by the prior admin and has been upgraded from Windchill 8 to 9 to 9.1 to 10 to 11. He used DS groups. When I set up the Windchill 11.1 system, upgraded from 11.0, I used Wihdchill  groups.

That may be why I will need to check the Groups repository for the 11.1 upgrade.

Thank you for letting me know where to look for groups in Windhcill.  I usually set them up in Windchill and all of the ones that I have done are that way.  I too inherited these systems, so I will have to look at the setup.  11.0 didn't use licenses did it?  So would all the License Groups make a difference?  I'll see if they are there when I look.

When I upgraded from 11.1 M020 CPS22 to 12.0.2.3 I did the following:

@RandyJones, is the User Filter necessary?  What does that do?  I am curious because Ben hadn't used it.

 

I am going from 11.1.2.28 to 12.1.2.0.
