Is this again the same in 2014?
Autodesk Vault Server must be available to open or create vault projects. AutoCAD Plant 3D supports the following Vault Servers:
Vault Server Workgroup 2014
Vault Server Professional 2014
Or is Vault Server Basic 2014 also possible?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Correct, Vault Basic is not sufficient.

This Autodesk site states that Vault Basic 2014 does support AutoCAD P&ID 2014.
The AutoCAD P&ID 2014 Read Me file seems confusing.
Is there a document that explains how to setup Vault Basic 2014 for use with AutoCAD P&ID 2014?
You can use P&ID with Vault Basic as you would with AutoCAD. However, for P&ID-specific functionality and projects, you’ll need the next level up on Vault. This information is also found at this help link: Installing for Autodesk Vault
This help link includes information on using Plant 3D or P&ID with Vault (see video too): About Autodesk Vault
And this Autodesk University class link that may be of interest: PD1335: Multi-site Workflows: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly—An Advanced Look at Your Options Some good info in the handout there on using Plant 3D with Vault. FYI.
This Autodesk website does not indicate any limitation to the functionality of AutoCAD P&ID 2014 with Vault 2014.
The customer purchased based on this information. Shouldn't there be an asterisk next to the check mark to indicate a limitation to the product? Inventor projects are fully supported by Vault Basic. AutoCAD Electrical projects are supported by Vault Basic? Why not AutoCAD P&ID projects?
