In order to be able to share the component libraries in SHARK among multiple users, SQL SERVER is essential.
If the customer already has SQL Server Express, Unilab can configure the Shark database to work and connect with it (the activity is provided on demand), and the components’ archive will be shared within your office!
SQL Express must always be installed independently by the customer: the installation can be managed internally by your internal IT staff, or externally by consultants who, working closely with your IT department, can configure SQL Express under optimal conditions, in line with your internal policies.
Many of our customers, to avoid unsuitable configurations, prefer to use the specialized support of external companies, which working closely with internal IT managers, provide their expertise and all the support necessary for the optimal installation and configuration of SQL Express.
Unilab therefore DOES NOT install SQL Server. So what do we do in practice?
we prepare your Shark database to be compatible with SQL server, in any of the PCs where SHARK is installed.
Unilab configures SHARK to work and connect to a specific SQL instance.
Once SQL Server Express has been installed by your IT Staff or by external consultants, SHARK will be configured by our technicians to work and connect with it, and the Shark database will directly point to the server, becoming shared: by inserting a new component, even your technical colleagues will be able to see and use it.
Here are the steps to be taken:
- The customer must install SHARK in the workstations where he wants it to be usable.
- The customer must prepare the server (where then, Unilab will install the DATABASE ONLY, compatible with SQL).
- Once point 1 and 2 have been accomplished, Unilab will prepare the database to be installed on the server and will connect on the various stations to enable the connection between the server and the station!
