With PDM standard, is it possible to retrieve the metadata from the DB regularly?
In addition, is it possible to use an existing SQL server instead of sql express?
PDM Standard can only use SQL Server Express. You can query the database.
Thanks a lot, Mike.
Any recommendation on the server spec to run PDM standard (archive+sql express) for up to 5 concurrent users?
As per solid-works site,
CPU: >= 3.3GHz
RAM: >= 16GB
Graphics Card: Not sure if this is needed
Disk: SSD 200GB (CAD, metadata and backup)
In reality, how much capacity is required?
i think you will need more capacity over time. Last week a computer store offers a Samsung 1 TB SSD drive for as low as 99,- bucks. Okay: It's recommended to use a raid as well as you have to think about backups. Anyway. I would recommend at least 500 GB storage, because you'll get copies of your files on every check-in.
Yes, it is possible to query the database for SQL Standard. you will need SQL Management Studio though. this can be downloaded from the Microsoft website.
regarding SQL standard, you cannot run PDM Standard there. You must use SQL Express
