Before using Smart 3D, you must configure the following network shares. The paths to these shares are needed while working in the software.
Database Templates Share
Creating a share for the database templates that are delivered during the Reference Data setup is necessary only if you are planning to use Oracle databases.
Create a share on a computer to hold the database templates that you create for use with the software. By default, the database templates are delivered as part of the Reference Data setup.
The user login used to create the Smart 3D databases and the account on which the Oracle service (OracleService<SID>) is running require Write permissions to this share.
For Oracle, the userid under which the Oracle service runs must have Write permission on both the share and the folder where the database templates are located. If the Oracle service is running as the local SYSTEM account, you should add the NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM account to both.
Create a share for the SharedContent folder that is created during the Reference Data setup. All users must be granted read permissions on the share; those users responsible for creating output and reference data must have write access. You will need to specify this location name when you use the Database Wizard to create the Site and Catalog databases.
Additionally, if you installed Reference Data in the default folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Smart3D\3DRefData\), you must adjust access permissions as follows:
Access the Properties page for the SharedContent folder and modify the share permissions on the Sharing tab. At a minimum, permissions must allow read access for all users, and write access to those users responsible for creating output.
Access the Properties page for the SharedContent folder and modify the share permissions on the Security tab to give users full control disk access for the SharedContent folder and subfolders.
