ST9 Fast Search setup guide

 

Hello all

 

We are having some issues with finding resources which illustrate the setup of the new data management system for ST9.

 

Our IT manager has tried to open the .pdf included on the ST9 install disk which discribes the server setup steps for Fast Search, but it is corrupted. Is there a place online where this guide can be accessed?

 

Is there a complete how to guide online to setup Fast Search on server & client machines?

FYI not all of the .pdf files on the install media are Adobe Acrobat documents.  The .pdf file type is also used by Microsoft as an install file.

 

Adobe PDF = Portable Document Format

Microsoft PDF = Product Definition File 

 

Therefore the .pdf file on the install media is *not* corrupted but is in fact a file necessary for installing the software.

@uk_dave, this is interesting, I've never heard or seen a .pdf being anything other than a media file.

 

The question still remains however, does anyone know of a good resource for setting up the server side of the equation?

The server side piece of the software is very minimal.

 

I would suggest you start with the Solid Edge online help and then follow the links:

Along with the SE Help you also find this blog post by Michael

Good luck!
