Hi All,

 

I have question related to both teamcenter installation and teamcenter catia integration. As of now we are using TC 11.2 and TCIC 11.0.4 in our environment. We have requirement to connect to our partner's system which running on TC 11.4 and same TCIC version. Is it possible for us to install two teamcenter system in one machine.

 

Thank you in advanced.

It is possible to install two Teamcenter clients (TcRAC) on the same machine given some ground rules...

Minimally:
1. You cannot install both TcRAC in the default location since they would overwrite each other.
2. You have to force the setting of FMS_HOME for the correct TcRAC being launched.
3. You have to stop any previously running FCC (java.exe).
4. You can only run one Teamcenter client at a time not both simultaneously.

Maximally:
A. Redirect the location of FCCCache out of the users profile.
B. Redirect the location of Teamcenter\RAC out of the users profile.
C. Use separate TCIC, one for each TcRAC, pointing to the same Catia install.

This situation is often encountered by a company that enforces the software lifecycle, Dev to Quality to Prod. The normal work-around is to have multiple workstations with a single TcRAC on each which isn't cost effective.

This situation is also encountered by a company that signs in to several other companies Tc. The normal work-around is to have a workstation sitting in the server room with TcRAC installed for that company's Tc and users remotely log in (VPN/RDP) to the workstation to launch TcRAC.

I'm giving a presentation at Siemens PLM Connections 2018 on this topic. Hope to see you there!

Dear Randy

 

Thank you for your reply. It's great to hear that multiple Teamcenter system can be running on the same machine.

For Point C : ( In case TcIC Version is different)

1. You cannot install both TcIC in the samelocation since they would overwrite each other.

2. You cannot use same Enviornment file for both TcIC Installation

3. You cannot use both TcIC at same time considering they use same socket port until it is configured to use different.

 

For Point C : ( In case TcIC Version is same)

1. With Latest TcIC Version 11.0.X, you can configured client_env to configured for multiple client of TC Installation in single file so as to use it as per need

2. With previous TCIC Version, it will challenged to use same location so need to install TcIC in different location
