I am a complete newbie on Solidworks.. I presently support the PTC Intralink (soon to be PDMLink) system for our company.
We acquired a company that uses Solidworks. As such I make analogies to the PTC PDM world when I ask these questions.
I am struggling with the complete picture, but appearances are we have:
~50 users using Solidworks Globally - 2008 version with PDMWorks workgroup version 2008 on a server at the primary facility.
Does PDMWorks workgroup allow for replication to remote vaults? (ie: how would I tell if they replicate to anothe site)
I do have access to the vault administrator and poking around the settings is not showing me anything so I suspect this function is not supported in the work group version.
Does anyone have a good strawman for upgrading from 2008 - 2010 using the workgroup version?
A plan would be great as I can adjust for our setup while also accounting for all the tasks I should be considering.
ie: Export config? Backup files? Vaults? Object lists?
Can I upgrade my license files to support 2010 and then upgrade the code later? I assume so but hey I better ask!
Any words of wisdom or gotchas are appreciated as I embark on this?
Links to any appropriate docs would be great as well!
