[ORD 2019 R2] Workspace on a Network

Has anyone found a way to have a workspace on a network, but have the delivered workspace still located at its default location? Generally, we want users to access our workspace for its settings, but if they need to do a self paced training, we would also want to allow them to use the training and example workspaces. We would rather not put a full copy of them on the server, but only have files needed for our workspace located there.

I have a very good grasp of pre-ORD workspaces, but this is pretty much starting over from scratch.

In the past, I have managed to have PCF files that change folders of UCF files and UCF files that change folder of PCF files. I'm hoping I can select a Workspace and the list of worksets will change, and that some of these will be on the users C: Drive and others will be on the network.

Any ideas or tips will be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi Chuck,

    Has anyone found a way to have a workspace on a network, but have the delivered workspace still located at its default location?

    yep, I think we have it set up like you desire. The delivered configuration is local and accessible to the users. Our configuration is stored on the network.

    This is done in the ConfigurationSetup.cfg by defining the variable  _USTN_CUSTOM_CONFIGURATION

    I'm hoping I can select a Workspace and the list of worksets will change,

    This is the way it works, WorkSets are children of their WorkSpace. The WorkSets are CFG files in a single location, local or network.

    that some of these will be on the users C: Drive and others will be on the network.

    It doesn't work like this, all WorkSets .cfg file are stored in one location. You can have a workset point to its data files anywhere you want.

    Hope this helps.

    ~HTH

    John.
