Can VW be hosted on a Server?

Recommended Posts

Can I run VW -- or a an image of it -- on a server (specifically OSX Server)? We have enough licences for all the clients, but VW updates, Standards folder updates, Plug-ins updates etc. would be simpler if I had to do them to only one copy (server) instead of on all the client machines.

With a PC network you have to have a working copy of the software on each workstation. With a network of 20+ users, I have a script that during log-in, will copy liscences, master workspace and plugin files from the server to each workstation to ensure that everyone is using the most up to date files and liscneces. I know it's an NT network and doesn't help you an ounce with your OSX issues, but if I can do it with a PC you must be able to do it on a Mac. Someone out there must have something similar.

It has to be installed at the local station, it cannot be installed universally on a server.

This is true for PC and Mac.

i thought it could be done using "net-install" on osX server

(which if this can't be done can it be added to the wish list)

but the other way to do it would be to set up one way Folder Sync

ie each of the client machines sync's off a folder on the server. you would just have to put in the serial numbers on each of the client machines the first time it's run.
