We are thinking of having our databases moved to our server so that we have the same information available for each user. If we do this how does the Management Tool find the databases when we need to make a change or add something?And, can the libraries we each have on our local machines be moved to the server as well so we can have common libraries?Thank you.

Hello Russ,first step would be to move your databases to the preferred location on your server. Once they're placed, you would then need to modify the Database Configuration file.It is located at the path.C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Advance Steel 2016\ConfigurationYou can open the file in Note Pad and edit the path of each database to be read at the new location on your server.The Configuration file is local to each computer. Once you've modified it, copy it to the other stations so that all users can be using the same databases.Best Regards,
