How to talk someone into implementing the vault...
kpyoung333 posted a topic in Autodesk InventorWorking with a company that does not use the vault. They have 1000+ parts and 200+ assemblies. If the vault is installed, activated, how easy is it to upload all and have them work and not break relations and constraints? The last time I started vault from scratch and didn't upload any old files. Will this be as simple as I hope? I really want them to get the revision management and copy design implemented into everyday use cause it's awesome. Thanks!
Multiple Vault Users Access
kpyoung333 posted a topic in Autodesk InventorI have been using the vault at administrator status and feel pretty comfortable with it. Time to bring on other coworkers and get them going. I set up permissions for coworker as administrator, but when they log in and try to copy design it gives the attached error. Probably a simple answer, only thing I could find was talking about permissions and security setting of the .ipj? Any ideas?

AutoCad 2012 and Vault 2012 issues
paisis123 posted a topic in Vertical Products: GeneralI have multiple class A (A for Annoying) issues with AutoDesk and Vault 1. I have a "phase out" problem (again) is where I'm checking in a drawing on the prompt, and while im typing a comment on the bottom, the prompt phases out as if I'm not clicking on it anymore and interrupts my typing. This is something has Been not only bugging me but a great deal of other designers im the group. Does anyone know of a quick fix or a Cause to why this is happening. 2. Autocad crashes while trying to edit a Xref in place (this is worked around by separately editing the XREF, but i rather edit in place to see the other xrefs for a reference in which to work from...... 3. Random error while checking in ,has anyone seen this before? If anyone has solutions to the above problems it not only helps me but to others that may have the same experiences.....
tmccar posted a topic in Autodesk InventorWe are looking at rolling out Vault 2012 to approx. 50 users in 5 sites and we have not decided whether to have a local Vault server/SQL server at each site, or use one server located at a datacenter. What I am hoping to do is to do some comparison tests with the local Vault server and the remote datacenter server. I can use single 3D Inventor parts, complex Inventor assemblies and 2D Autocad drawings. I would appreciate any advice on how I can do some useful speed/timing testing that will provide good feedback on what solution is best for us. I was trying to list some test parameters but all I have come up with so far is 1. Check out Inventor part 2. Make changes and check in 3. Check out complex assembly 4. Change part of assembly and check in. And for each point, I would record "Time taken on local server" and "Time taken on remote server" What further testing can I carry out on Vault functionality?
