Have you gone through the template setup process?

What is the NX syslog telling you about the PAX file loading?

In documentation it is stated to run tcin_template_setup.bat to import the template.

I executed this batch file, I can see NX templates folder under Home folder of infodba. But NX template folder is empty.

I have many pax and prt files in templates folder of NX installed.

Did you run the command from the Teamcenter command line? No errors during installation? Check the Newstuff folder.

You need to import the template files into Teamcenter to use them with managed NX. You do not need to do this with the utility provided, a regular import through NX will be OK too.

You will then have to change the PAX files starting with nxdm_ to point to the files uploaded to Teamcenter. The file system path will be replaced by "@DB/{item ID}/{item revision}".

As i am not able to see all the tabs after launching NX from TC , so I am trying to improt OOTB template provided in . C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 12.0\UGII\templates   location.

I have successfully executed tcin_template_setup.bat, I can see many NX related folders under Home of infodba. But except NX Template folder all other folders are filled with data. NX template folder is empty.

The folders are only for us humans, NX is not using them at all, it is just checking for the existence of the items.

What does the NX syslog tell you about the processing of the PAX files? Find it through "File => Help => Log File".

Look for lines like the following:

Processing C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 10.0\UGII\templates\nxdm_ugs_manufacturing_templates.pax for File New Templates

The lines after these are usually telling you what is wrong with your PAX file.

Usually there are folders created specific to your release, like "NX10 CAM Setup Templates", these are the ones that contain the imported items.
