WPDM Vault Name

Hello,

I have created a WPDM vault on my local disk and got the Lifecycle and Revision Scheme set up the way I want it. I now want my colleagues to try it out before I go live on the main data vault.

I have shared the directory

 

C:\vaultdata with my colleagues and they are able to connect to it in Windows Explorer.

 

The next step is for my colleagues to open up WPDM in Solidworks and right-click, Switch Vault/user.

 

However, on my machine, the new vault is called

 

Localhost

 

but I doubt whether my colleagues will be able to connect using that name.

 

On my company network, if my computer is called

 

johnspc

 

and my new vault is on

 

C:\vaultdata

 

what do my colleagues have to type in the box labelled

 

Vault Computer?

 

We have tried typing

 

johnspc

 

and that did not work.

 

I would be grateful for your help.

 

 

Regards,

 

 

John
