I noticed in the log into the repository you can open a Select... dialog, and in there is a section for "detected on local network:"
Even after clicking on refresh, however, our server doesn't appear. Is there a secret to getting this to work?
I did several tests with my environment:
My laptop belongs to a domain.
One repository & the ER/Studio Data Architect installed in a VM are in the same Workgroup
The other repository belongs to a different Workgroup.
The ER/Studio Data Architect in the VM (Workgroup) displays the 2 repositories available with my Local Network.
The ER/Studio Data Architect installed on my laptop (Domain) doesn't show any repository.
Then I have added the VM with the repository and the second workgroup to the same domain as my laptop.
After disconnecting from my VPN, I'm able to see the repository from the same domain with my ER/Studio Data Architect installed on my laptop.
(I have setup a bridge connection for the VM, not NAT)
I hope it helps, regards,
Thanks for taking the time to investigate!
I'm guessing it must be a subnet thing, assuming your VPN uses a different subnet as ours does. I don't have much of an option at the moment though, as everyone is working remotely now and VPN is my only option. (Our server is installed on our core network, and my laptop is connecting via VPN.)
Still, it's good to have an idea of why it's not working. Thanks again!
As you can still type the name of the server manually, or view it as previously used when you were at the office without the VPN, this is not an issue as you can use the repository over the VPN
Agreed. I like having answers though at the ready for my community of users. :-)
