Course Overview
Good day everyone. My name is Neil Cross, and welcome to my course on Autodesk Vault Professional Installation. I'm an independent Autodesk applications and data management consultant based in the UK. I'm also a Pluralsight author for Autodesk Inventor and Inventor Certified Professional. And along with being on the Autodesk Expert Elite roster, I've worked within a Platinum Autodesk reseller for eight years as a Vault Services provider. I've previously consulted in an advisory role for the Autodesk Vault development team, and I now manage the Vault environment in two hugely successful global engineering companies. So it's safe for me to assume that you're needing to install Vault Professional. Well, if so, you've absolutely done the right thing by seeking advice and guidance. If you were to ask anyone who works in, or has previously worked in an Autodesk reseller, I can guarantee they'll have a horror story about how they know of a company who tried to install Vault by themselves, thought how hard can it be, only to find themselves not only requiring a complete reinstall from the CAD supplier, but also needing to spend even more money fixing problems that resulted from the failed install. Vault Professional is essential and it demands respect. It's a high-end data management solution which houses the most important asset of your company: your digital design data. It's so essential, in fact, that it indeed warrants its own dedicated course on Pluralsight, so, in this course we're going to be looking through the entire installation procedure for Vault Professional. We'll cover the planning and preparation required prior to the installation, along with how to configure the various server elements to best practice guidelines. As this is a server-based course, you'll need full administrative permissions and unrestricted physical or remote access to the server you wish to install Vault Professional on, along with access to the software installation media and licenses or serial numbers for the software we'll be using throughout the course. A full detailed list of that software will be given at the beginning of the first course module. So thank you very much for your time. Now let's begin on making sure that you're suitably equipped with the knowledge and insight required to deliver a best practice Vault Professional installation.
