NX 10 + 11 Documentation Servers

Experimenter

Hi All,

 

This may have already been answered, but i can't seem to find the issue specifically to what i'm experiencing.

 

Upon moving to NX 10, we of course took the chance at getting the central location for Documentation to avoid the painfulness of locally installing the documentation onto each workstation.

 

Needless to say we want to keep this for NX 11 as well.

 

However, there is the problem.

 

I of course have both of the Documentation servers working, but under the assumption that I go to them manually.

 

I found these variables:

UGII_UGDOC_BASE

http://localhost:8181

UGII_HELP_RELEASE_NOTES    

http://localhost:8181/tdoc/nx/10/release_notes/#uid:index

UGII_HELP_WHATS_NEW      

http//localhost:8181/tdoc/nx/10/whatsnew/#uid:index

UGII_HTML_UGDOC          

http//localhost:8181/tdoc/nx/10/nx_help/#uid:index

UGII_CSHELP_MAPS          

C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 10.0\ugii\docmaps

UGII_CSHELP_DOCS          

http://localhost:8181/tdoc/nx/10/nx_help

UGII_CSHELP_API_DOCS      

http://localhost:8181/tdoc/nx/10/nx_api

UGII_CSHELP_DEFAULTS_DOCS

http://localhost:8181/data_services/resources/nx/10/nx_help/en_US/graphics/

fileLibrary/nx/cust_defaults

 

UGII_CSHELP_FUSION_DOCS

http://localhost:8181/data_services/resources/nx/10/nx_api/en_US/graphics/

fileLibrary/nx/fusion

 

I have been deploying a Group Policy to enforce the NX Documentation variables onto the NX Workstations, but I obviously can't have multiple entires of the same thing.

 

The director of the NX Team feels the need to have both the prior version and the latest at the same time for a period until users are familiar/trained with the latest version before removing the older version. So i need to be able to have both software versions, direct to their appropriate documentation services.

 

If I was to force this variable for example:

UGII_HTML_UGDOC          

http//localhost:8181/tdoc/nx/10/nx_help/#uid:index

 

Then users on NX 11, upon clicking the Help would be directed to NX 10 Help, instead of NX 11 Help.

 

Any way I can have both? Perhaps another variable somewhere that detects the NX version and adjusts accordingly?

Put the variables you want in the ugii_env.dat file for the specific version of NX. That's exactly what that file is for. Edit one file for each version, then copy that file to all systems into the ...\UGII folder where the specific version of NX resides.

Hello @Intersurgical,

 

Anthony (@PhoeNX_Support), is correct. In the NX UGII folder, you will find the ugii_env.dat file, in which you can set the Variables. If you set in here the UGII_UGDOC_BASE=yourserver:8181 NX knows where the server is. And it will point automatically to the right NX version for the documentation. This is where this ugii_env.dat file is for.

 

It might me possible you have your ugii_env place somewhere else. If you have done this in a central location, you will only have to point all user to this location. (search on this community site for the NXCustom, which might help you in centralizing your files).

 

Another option would be, if you are working with a startup script to start NX, you can put the Variable in the startup script for  both versions.

 

Kind regards,


Dennis
