    WPDM Vault Name

    John Wayman


      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




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


      On my company network, if my computer is called




      and my new vault is on




      what do my colleagues have to type in the box labelled


      Vault Computer?


      We have tried typing




      and that did not work.


      I would be grateful for your help.
