Best practices for installing Solid Edge in multiple computers

Is there any document with advices on best practices to install Solid Edge in multiple computers?

 

For instance, I have a customer asking what are the files that are specified on Solid Edge Options > File Locations that can and cannot be shared on a network location.

 

I imagine that the Sheet Metal Gage File, Material Table Folder and Holes database folders can be shared across multiple Solid Edge installsm but what about the other files? Can or does it make sense that the Options.xml, Custom.xml, Propseed.txt, etc files are shared across all the installations, or should they be specific for each install?

 

Thank you.

Here's my file locations snapshot. Custom.xml is not there but it's controlled by SEAdmin which controls the options.xml file. Ours is also on the server.

Hi @Cadflow

 

 

 

a very fast and first answer from me would be:

 

"Everything where You change anything, should be placed centralized on a server drive, to allow everybody to have access to them!"
