PCS General Board / Setup PCS on a cloud Virtual Machine
« on: February 24, 2024, 03:46:03 am »
Hello EA experts,

Upon receiving recommendations from Geert, BobM, and Eve, I proceeded to create a virtual machine (VM) on Azure to host the PCS. Here's what I've accomplished thus far:

1- Set up a VM on Azure Cloud (Windows Server 2022 - Size Standard B2ms (2 vcpus, 8 GiB memory))
2- Installed PCS.
3- Installed Xampp.
4- EA? (Do I need to install EA on the server?)

However, upon attempting to open the Pro Cloud Config Client, I was prompted to enter a server address and password, as shown in the following screenshot:
https://ibb.co/pzBtwhG

My understanding is that I should enter the IP address of the VM. Yet, upon doing so, I encountered an error message, depicted here:
https://ibb.co/ZcxSRrV

I then navigated to the network settings within the VM and ensured that inbound traffic on the specified port (in this case, 4242) was allowed. However, despite this adjustment, I continued to receive the same error message.

Additionally, in the "Server Address" field, I attempted to append the port number to the IP address (xx.xxx.xx.xx:4242), yet still encountered the same error message.

I would greatly appreciate your guidance on how to proceed past this obstacle.

Thank you, BobM. I really appreciate the additional clarification.

Thank you, Geert and BobM, for the clarifications.

What I understood is that there's only one option (or at least a recommended option) to have multiple team members collaborate on the same model concurrently and at the same time manage the floating licenses, that is through PCS. Is that correct?

Thank you, Eve and Bob. So, the recommended path in my situation is to follow the below steps to set up a PCS on a Windows-based virtual server on AWS or Azure.

I am curious to ask. Given that PCS is the recommended approach, why "Server Based Repositories" is still offered as one of the options?

Is there a side-by-side comparison for both options somewhere?

General Board / Re: Can EA and ServiceNow coexist? How?

Thank you, rupertkiwi.

I came across this in EA documentation: Walkthrough: ServiceNow Integration.

Hello, Eve,

Thank you for your response.

It seems that the links you provided are for setting up PCS. I am looking for the steps for hosting the model/database on our own server on Azure (not through PCS).

I would appreciate your help in pointing me in the right direction.

Thank you!

Thank you, Geert.

I could not find this information in the documentation. I would appreciate it if someone from the community or SparxSystems team could point me to the process for hosting the database on a server and hosting a license server on the same server.

Thanks a lot, Geert, for your response. I really appreciate it.

Can you point me to the documentation that I can share with our IT folks to go through this process?

General Board / Floating License Server with Server Based Repositories
« on: January 20, 2024, 04:36:27 am »
Hello, EA experts,

I posted a question a couple of weeks ago on how to get multiple users to collaborate on the same model concurrently. Eve advised that the recommended approach is to host a server that both can access.

https://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/16.1/the_model_repository/settingupdatabasemodelfile.html

My questions are:
1- We started moving towards purchasing floating licenses. Can we have a Floating License Server with the server that we will use to host the repositories? I could not find this information in the EA documentation. The documentation I came across only describes how the Floating License Server works with the Pro Cloud Server.
https://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/16.1/the_model_repository/procloud_keys.html

2- My understanding is that the server we intend to host can also be hosted on the cloud, i.e., it does not have to be on promise. Correct?

Thank you!

General Board / Re: Searching in EA

Juan,
I had a similar question recently. I came across this add-on. I have not tried to use it for this specific problem, but I think it has a feature for funding duplicates.

I'm afraid I can't. I don't have experience with serviceNow

Thank you, Geert. I appreciate your response.
