Setting Up Indexing

You should set up the SOLIDWORKS PDM index server for a vault on the SQL Server hosting the vault database.

The SOLIDWORKS PDM/SOLIDWORKS Manage Installation Guide describes the requirements and procedures to configure the index service on the SQL Server system that are performed outside the Administration tool, using tools such as SQL Server Management Studio.

These include:
  • Verifying the Microsoft Indexing Service installation
  • Updating the vault database with the index server name
  • Changing the database server login account
  • Changing the SQL Server login account
  • Adding index server filters
  • Rescanning the index catalog
  • Managing vault index catalogs
