Question:
Which server or server operating system can be used for data storage of Allplan.

Reply:

Since Allplan 2018 we recommend Windows Server 2016 as the server operating system for pure data storage and since Allplan 2019 also Windows Server 2019, since Allplan 2022 Windows Server 2022.
When selecting the server operating system, please also take into account the interaction with the client operating systems used.
For Windows Server 2012 R2, the "development phase" (fixing bug fixes, etc.) was discontinued in 2018.
However, Microsoft will continue to provide extended support (closing security gaps) until 10.10.2023.
The same applies in this respect for the Windows 8.1 operating system used in the same period.

Due to this fact, it cannot be ruled out that the further development of the Windows 10 operating system and the "technological standstill" of Windows Server 2012 R2 could lead to discrepancies when combining these operating systems at some point.

However, Microsoft should be able to guarantee compatibility for the operating systems used in the future.
Windows Server 2016 - Windows 10
Windows Server 2019 - Windows 10
Windows Server 2022 - Windows 10 and Windows 11 respectively.

If Allplan is also to be installed on the server operating system (e.g. Citrix), the corresponding release in the system requirements must be observed. For Allplan 2016/2017 this is e.g: Windows Server 2012 R2. For higher Allplan versions this is e.g: Windows Server 2016.


General information about the system requirements here:

https://www.allplan.com/en/system/system-requirements/


Notes on NAS systems:

NAS server are not generally recommended. Because the product variety and quality is very diverse, no effective quality control can take place. We can give no guarantee about operability. In the past we had performance or stability problems, false representations up to the loss of data in some cases.

This phenomenon occurs most in NAS systems of the lower price segment, which have not installed sufficiently fast hardware. If nevertheless a NAS system is to be used we recommend generally a high-performance hardware and the use of the operating system "Windows Storage Server 2012".

Question:

How can I check out a computer and continue to work as a normal CAD user with my usual settings and permissions?



Answer:

Install the "Microsoft Loopback Adapter" driver.
This driver is necessary so that network services are running on the computer all the time.
Go to Allplan Connect for a detailed description: https://connect.allplan.com/en/faqid/000162ae.html


Sign in as the Allplan administrator to the computer.


Step 1: add the computer to workgroup manager
You must add the computer to the workgroup so that you can store data (data server) on this computer. Do the following:

Create data folders:
Create a folder - for example, “Nemdata” - on the computer and share it (full control).
Create the “Allplan” subfolder in this folder. Create two subfolders - “usr” and “prj” - in the Allplan folder.
In this example: “...\Nemdata\Allplan\prj” and “...\Nemdata\Allplan\usr”

To share a folder for the Allplan file storage

  1. Start File Explorer on the computer that you want to use for file storage and switch to the folder that you want to share (in this example, the “Nemdata” folder).
  2. Right-click the folder that you want to share and select Give access to -> Specific peopleon the shortcut menu.
  3. Select Everyoneand click Share.


Add computer:

  1. Start the Services application as the workgroup administrator.
  2. Click and select Manage computers and projects.
  3. Click the Add any computer to Allplan workgroupicon and select the computer that you want to add.
  4. Select the “Allplan” subfolder under the share and click “OK” to confirm. This computer is now listed under workgroup server.


Note:If you have problems adding the computer to workgroup manager, read the following instructions:
https://connect.allplan.com/en/faqid/20200317162849.html



Step 2: define project owner
A user can only move a project if the user is the owner of this project.
The ownership of a project can only be changed by an Allplan administrator (or the owner of the project).
Allplan -> File -> ProjectPilot ->
Go to the “Projects” node, right-click the required project and click Propertieson the shortcut menu.
Define the owner.


Step 3: move projects
Sign in as the user who wants to check out the computer.
Select the Services application -> Workgroup Manager -> Manage computers and projects.
Click the main server and select the project that you want to move.
Drag the projects one after the other to the computer to be checked out.

Important note: You can take projects with you in several ways.

1. You move the project to the computer.
Move project: Drag the project to the destination computer, or open the shortcut menu of the project and click “Cut”. After this, open the shortcut menu of the destination computer and click “Paste”.
After you have checked in the computer, move the project back to the server so that it is available to all and included in backups again.

2. You copy projects. Click a project, select and hold the Ctrl key and drag the project to the destination computer. Or: Open the shortcut menu of the project and click “Copy”. After this, open the shortcut menu of the destination computer and click “Paste”.

You can continue in two ways: Lock the original project on the server to protect it from changes. Consequently, nobody in the office can work on this project, but it is still on the server. When you check in the computer again, you unlock the project on the server, delete the project and copy your copy back to the server if you have changed the project.
Alternatively, both projects remain active. Consequently, both the project copied and the original on the server can be worked on. In this case, however, you must adjust the data manually when you are back in the office by copying the changed drawing files of the projects by using ProjectPilot.




Step 4: check out the computer
Select the Services application -> Workgroup Manager -> Manage computers and projects.
Click your computer and then click Check outin the lower-right area.
Confirm the message that tells you that there are still user folders on the computer to be checked out.
Enter a comment and click OK. Users in the office see this comment when they try to access a project that is on the computer that is checked out.
Specify the parts of the office standard you want to copy to the computer and click OK to confirm.
The first time you check out the computer, you must copy the office standard once so that the entire STD folder is on this computer. This is no longer necessary when you check out the computer afterward because the contents of the STD folder do not change very often.


Conclusion:

You can now remove the computer from the network and work on your projects when you are out of the office. To make sure that the projects are not changed in the office in the meantime, the projects that are on the computer checked out are locked for the CAD users on the network. These users see the comment you entered when you checked out the computer.

Question:

What does this error message mean and how can I fix it? How can I change the path and switch from server to local?

Response:

For the use of Allplan Share, a defined path for the "LocaldataPath" is used for the temporary storage of the project data to be edited. In Allplan 2021, a default setting was made so that the LocaldataPath should always be in the Windows user folder. However, for customers who place their users on the server, this causes the problem that 80 characters are exceeded.
Since hotfix 2021-0-3 there is a possibility to change this path to local by creating a registry entry.


Note:

The procedure described below is done at your own risk.
Questions about this should be clarified before the practical implementation.
Always make a copy of a file before making any changes to it.
Before changing registry entries, create a backup of the registry key to be modified by exporting the key in the registry editor under File->export.
We recommend that you have this work done by an experienced technician.


After you have installed at least version 2021-0-3 of Allplan, proceed as follows:

Be sure to exit Allplan before making the change to prevent data loss and errors.

  1. On a local C: or D: drive of the computer used for Allplan, create a new folder with the name "Local data" and the subfolder "Allplan" (e.g. C:\Local data\Allplan) .
  2. In Windows, as an administrator, start the Windows Registry Editor (Start-> Run-> Regedit) .
  3. In the registry, in the left column, open the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nemetschek\Allplan\2021.0\InstallRoot.
  4. In the right window, right-click and select New -> String Value. Create a string value with the names LocalDataDrive and a string value with the name LocalDataPath.
  5. Now activate the edit mode for the "LocalDataDrive" key in the right column of the registry editor by double-clicking the left mouse button and enter here only the drive you have chosen for the local file storage (e.g. C: ) and confirm the change with "OK". Thus the change is taken over in the registration editor.
  6. Then activate the edit mode for the "LocalDataPath" key in the right column of the registry editor by double-clicking the left mouse button and enter the additional path defined for the local file storage (e.g. \LocalDataPath ) and confirm the change with "OK". The change will be applied to the registry editor. The result should look as follows:


  7. Close the registration editor. Allplan now uses the newly defined path for the Allplan Share cache.

Restart the Allmenu and you will see the local path displayed there.

Question:

How can I move the license server to a new server?



Answer:
If you activated the license(s) online by entering a Product Key, you can return the license(s) and then use them on a different server. You can return licenses only if the server has Internet access.


Returning a license

To return a license in online mode

  • Start the license server by opening the License Settings.
  • Click License activationon the left. Then click the license you want to return.
  • Click Return license.
  • Do this for each license until you have returned all licenses.


You can now activate the license(s) on a different server.


To install the license server on the new server, download the software for the license server from Allplan Connect.
You can activate a license in online mode only if you have ...

  • Internet access
  • a Product Key



Installing the license server on the new server

  • Start License Server Setupon the new server.
  • Click Install.
  • Start the license server by starting the License Settingsprogram. Go to the License activationarea, enter your Product Key and click Activate license.
  • If you have more licenses for the license server, enter the respective Product Keys and activate the licenses.
  • Afterwards, start CodeMeter Control Center.
    To do this, use the Windows start menu and select CodeMeter -> CodeMeter Control Center. As an alternative, open Search by clicking the Search button on the Start screen, enter Codemeter and press ENTER. A dialog box opens. Click WebAdmin at bottom right.

    Or Enter Localhost:22350in the address bar of your browser.
  • Select Settings -> Server -> Access serverin the Network serverarea and click Activate.
  • Click Apply.



Configuring the clients

The license server license will be detected automatically on the network; the clients display the license(s) provided by the new server.

Check the license selection in the license settings of the client:

Services application -> Utilities -> License settings -> License selection

Priority:
Select the check box in front of a license to select this license as a favorite. You can mark as many licenses as you want. Allplan will then prefer these licenses. Click to select one ore more licenses Allplan is not to use. If you do not select any license or if you have selected several favorites, Allplan will automatically use the first free license it finds.

Find license server automatically:
When you select this option, Allplan automatically detects a license server on the LAN. In some cases, such as VPN connections, Allplan may not be able to detect a server automatically. In this case, you can enter the server manually (see additional server name).
Note:Only the Windows administrator can change this option.

Additional server name:
If 'Find license server automatically' is not active or Allplan has not automatically found a license server, you can manually enter the name or the IP address of the server. If 'Find license server automatically' is active, you can enter an additional server. After having entered the server name, click Updateto see the licenses of the license server. Use semicolons to separate several server names.


Notes:

You can find detailed information on the license server in the License Settings help (F1 key).

Allplan communicates with the license server via TCP/IP. By default, communication is via Port 22350unless you change the port in CodeMeter WebAdmin.

If a firewall is active on your computer, you must enable port 22350 for TCP and UDP. If the firewall filters in an application-specific manner, you have to enable the CodeMeter.exe license server service. You can find this service in the %Program Files (x86)%\CodeMeter\Runtime\bin Windows folder. Define the CodeMeter.exe service as an exception in the firewall. Some anti-virus programs also include firewall functions. If you are not sure, contact the manufacturer of the anti-virus program.

Task:

You want to transfer a project with all its settings to a partner office for further editing.

Note:

The following description works only if both partners use the same version of Allplan (Allplan 2018-1 or later).

1. Backing up the project:

Before you back up the project, make sure that “office” or “project” is selected for the path settings of the project.
To do this, open ProjectPilot and select the project: right mouse button -> Properties-> Settings. Here, you can select the path settings.
For exchanging projects with partner offices, we recommend that you switch all project settings to “project”.
This ensures that all pen definitions and line definitions, user-defined fonts, patterns and hatching styles, bar and mesh cross-section catalogs, and layer definitions will be copied to the project and backed up together with the project.

Note:
After the backup, switch the path settings back to “office”. But do not change the paths that already had the “project” setting.

Start Allplan and select the “File” menu -> “New Project, Open Project...”.
Right-click the project that you want to back up and select "Create project backup".
(Allplan 2018: Select “Compress and export project”: )
Select the folder where you want to save the project.

2. Importing the project:

To add a compressed project to the "New Project, Open Project" dialog box

Start Allplan and select the “File” menu -> “New Project, Open Project...”.

  • Drag a compressed project (*.zip) from the desktop or from File Explorer into the "New Project, Open Project" dialog box.
  • Specify the folder and enter a name for the project; then, click OK.
  • Allplan unzips the project, adding it to the project list.

Question:

Does Allplan create backup files (*.bak)?
How can I use these files?



Answer:

Allplan creates backup files when you do the following:

  1. Copy, Move Elements between Documents …
    Allplan creates a backup file of the destination drawing file or layout.
  2. Deleting drawing files and layoutsin the "Open on a project-specific basis" dialog box
    If you have selected "Create backup copies of drawing files", Allplan creates a backup file of the drawing file or layout.
  3. Importing data to drawing files
    If you have selected "Create backup copies of drawing files", Allplan creates a backup file of the drawing file.


Note on points 2 and 3:

To select the "Create backup copies of drawing files" option, click
Tools -> Options -> Desktop environment -> Save/load area (until V2009 Global Options -> Miscellaneous -> Autosave, Backup)->Create backup copies of drawing files.


Restoring:

If need be, you can restore the original drawing file or layout.
Make a note of the drawing file number or layout number and determine the corresponding project folder as follows:
Services application -> Service -> Hotline Tools -> wopro

Open this folder in Windows Explorer.

Rename the corresponding drawing file "tb000001.ndw" "tb000001.ndw.old" or the corresponding layout "pb000001.000" "pb000001.000.old.", for example.
Delete the bak extension from the corresponding bak file.

Example 1:

You have inadvertently copied the wrong elements to drawing file 4711.
1st step: exit the project in Allplan.
2nd step: delete file tb004711.ndw or rename it tb004711.ndw.old.
3rd step: find file tb004711.ndw.bak and rename it tb004711.ndw.

Example 2:

You have inadvertently copied the wrong elements to layout 815.
1st step: exit the project in Allplan.
2nd step: delete file pb000815.000 or rename it pb000815.000.old.
3rd step: find file pb000815.000.bak and rename it pb000815.000.



Note:

These backup files can considerably increase the volume of data to be backed up. So it is a good idea to delete the .bak files you no longer require before you start backing up data. To delete the .bak files, you can select the Services application and click Utilities -> Delete temporary files.

You can also find this information in the help for Allplan. Please refer to the topic "Using bak files".

Question:

I installed Allplan with Workgroup Manager on a new computer for the first time. When I start Allplan, I get the following message: The user profile "DOMAIN\user name" was not found. Temporarily, the profile of local will be used.
Therefore, I cannot access any project. What can I do?



Answer:

You have logged in to the computer with a new Windows user who does not yet exist in Workgroup Manager administration of Allplan.
You need to add this new user to Workgroup Manager. To do this, log in as the administrator to the computer or use a different computer where a user has administrator privileges for Workgroup Manager.

Services application -> Workgroup Manager -> Administrate users -> right-click -> Create user

For the "user name", you can enter any Allplan user name, which can be up to 8 characters long.
For the "Windows user name", you must enter the name the user uses for login.
Important: If the user uses a domain for login, you must add it to the "Windows user name", for example, DOMAIN\user.


There is one Allplan administrator and any number of normal Allplan users.
A Windows user with any login name becomes an Allplan administrator if you go to "User group" and
select "Administrator"on the dropdown menu. Using this approach, you can also assign administration privileges to existing users.


You must enter the email address and the password only if the user is notpart of the workgroup but needs access to online projects (Workgroup Online).


Important: Click "Apply" and then "OK" to close the dialog box and the user overview respectively.



Note:

After you have created the user as an Allplan user, do not forget to assign the relevant projects to this user. Otherwise, this user is not allowed to edit the projects.

Question:

I want to run Allplan on a terminal server. Can I use any other terminal server than Citrix?



Answer:

Microsoft terminal server or Horizon is not approved for Allplan.
In addition, running Allplan on a terminal server requires an Allplan license server for managing the Allplan licenses.
If you have only used stand-alone licenses until now, you must purchase the additional ‘license server’ option. Should you have any questions, please contact your sales partner.


VM Ware (Horizon) or RDP is not approved for Allplan. This means that you do not get any support for this constellation.
You may not have any problems with the current Allplan version. However, future developments will not take RDP or VM Ware into account. Consequently, this functionality may be limited or not available at all in future Allplan versions.

Citrix is the only terminal server that is approved for Allplan.
