Enter the user name and password of the
ENOVIA V5 VPM Administrator.
Note: The ENOVIA V5 VPM Administrator's User Name and Password must already exist.
Both of these entries are case sensitive.
Note that, at this point, the userid and password may not be
recognized on the computer. This means that either you have made a
mistake, or you entered a UNIX userid and password because the database
to which you want to connect is located on a UNIX workstation.
The following dialog box then appears:
If you click Yes, the userid and password will be checked. If you want
to access a remote database, the warning will be ignored.
The ENOVIA V5 VPM Administrator:
Click the Next button to move to the next step.
- has administrative privileges in
ENOVIA V5 VPM
- creates users
- grants privileges for users
- grants roles to users
- grants process access to users
- must already exist as a system user.
Execution dialog box appears, which lets you specify exactly what
operation to perform during the installation:
What Are Database Objects?
Database objects are the data structures implemented to support the
ENOVIA V5 database.
Checking this option:
- creates tablespaces (or uses existing tablespaces)
- creates data structures ( application tables, indexes and views)
using the DDL files installed with the code; the role of these data
structures is to manage data persistency and object mapping
- sets up privileges for accessing the data structures
- in all database domains, sets up (inserts) CDM STEP data required
for domain management (mapping of domain objects)
- creates the dictionary owner and ENOVIA Administrator in the
What Are Startup Data?
Once the data structures have been created, the
installation inserts startup data into certain database application
Checking this option:
sets up domain administration
sets up a default people and organization (P&O)
implementation comprising a root organization (ADMIN), a default role
used for logging onto
ENOVIA V5 VPM (VPMADMIN), and an administrator
creates default security management: privileges
(functional access control), masks (data entity & attribute access
control) and processes
imports lifecycle graphs.
What Is Interference Management?
The Clash Server is used to compute geometric interference analysis
from ENOVIA V5 product assembly data.
A clash server is installed on the machine if the Interference
Management option is checked. If the option is not checked, a clash
client is installed.
In a typical industrial scenario, most installations will have a
separate UNIX workstation acting as clash server. The
ENOVIA V5 VPM server
will be configured as a clash client to the clash server.
The ENOVIA V5 VPM server does not need a graphics card installed to run.
The Clash Server, on the other hand, MUST have a graphics card installed
as well as the V5 code.
Regenerating ENOVIA V5 Environment Files and
In order to regenerate ENOVIA V5 Environment files and settings used
for runtime purposes, you should select neither Database Objects,
nor Startup data.
Whenever you choose to install the Startup data, you will
not have the option to generate a file containing DDL commands.
If you choose to install the Startup data but not to install
the Database Objects, it is assumed that you have already installed the
