In the lifetime of a SOLIDWORKS PDM vault, there will be occasions when the PDM archive folders will need to be moved to a new location. This can happen if the vault gets too big for the space on the server, or new drives are added to the server to increase the space.
In a previous article, we discussed and demonstrated adding users to a SOLIDWORKS PDM vault. The section Adding PDM Login User contains a mistake in the spelling of the login name for the user Ender Wiggin. The login name should have been Ewiggin, not Ewiggen. In this article, we will explain editing users in SOLIDWORKS PDM after an account is created.
There will be times when a PDM administrator needs to block users from being able to log into the vault. This article covers how blocking SOLIDWORKS PDM log-ins and why one would want to block PDM log-ins. An administrator would need to block log-ins when an upgrade on the server is planned for over a weekend or is going to be moving the archive server or the database server to a new location, or if there is some extensive maintenance that will be going on.
SOLIDWORKS PDM users must be created in order for individuals to be able to access and navigate in a PDM vault. Each vault will have a set of users who can be unique to that vault or also exist as users in other vaults. This article will cover adding a user to a SOLIDWORKS PDM vault via Windows login and PDM login.
