    WPDM Vault Name

    John Wayman

      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
