Cross Platform Installations
PDMWorks Vault will not run on Linux or Novell. However, it is possible to have the executables installed
on a Windows machine, and the vault storage area to be set up on a Linux or Novell server. “Possible” is
not “Recommended”. SolidWorks does not test or support the software on these cross platform
installations. It is likely that neither SolidWorks Corp not your reseller will be able to offer you any
assistance if an installation of this sort runs into trouble. I have done several of these, and they are most
prone to problems with user access to the vault data, and this has been in the most part due to assigning
permissions to the account running the service that accesses the files on a Novell server.
