Hope someone can help me with the following:
During copy design in Vault 2012 (Inventor 2012) I get an error: Value cannot be null; Parameter name: value
None of the files are copied. I've tried al kind of different ways, coping in the same folder, different prefix and/or suffix, first selecting files, folderlocatin in "To", other way around, no folderlocation in "To', and so on! I've also contacted our Autodesk supplier, but till now do they also not know what causes this.
Does anybody know what can cause this or better, has a sollution for this?
VaultServer log file attached of today 6-6-2011
Solved! Go to Solution.
It looks like there is a permission problem with your filestore directory.
The server runs as a particular user (by default "AutodeskVault"), and that user needs full control of the filestore directory.
Hope this helps,
I'll try that, I'll let you know.
It worked, someone had the idea that the user Autodeskvault was not used and deleted it!!!!
I re-installed, and copy design now works! Sometimes it's much simpler then you think!
I've been cheering to early, it worked with one part, but not with compleet assemblies (idw, iam and ipt), I got the same error as before.
Also no-one did delete the user "autodeskvault" (which I thought before. My supplier told me it is a known problem at Autodesk and are working on it.
I know the user "autodeskvault" was there before I installed 2012 over 2011. I don't know if it was deleted on the installation of 2012.
Still, I've reinstalled the Vault Server 2012, but with no change.
Also, we hade to upgrade the SQL from 2005 to 2008, could there be the problem?
It sounds like there are multiple problems. My suggestion of giving the AutodeskVault user full control of the filestore was based on the errors in the vlog. Have those gone away?
No, till now they didn't go away after giving autodesk user full control. To be sure we also have restarted the server after reinstalling Vault server, but nothing changed.
Straingly enough I can copy design a single file, like a idw, iam or ipt, as soon as I select multiple files, as a iam with its ipt's then it goes wrong.
There must be something wrong with the installation of 2012, 2011 worked perfectly!
We had to upgrade from SQL2005 to SQL2008 because of 2012 installation, perhaps something went wrong there.
The errors in the log show permissions errors in the filestore. I can't think of anything in an upgrade from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008 that would have any impact on the filestore.
The "Impersonation User" needs full access to the filestore (and all the files and folders within it). By default the "Impersonation User Name" is set to "AutodeskVault", but it can be changed in the ADMS-Console (Tools >> Administration >> Advanced Settings Tab >> Advanced configuration settings). Check to make sure you are giving permissions in the filestore to the correct user.
The installer will create the default "Impersonation User" ("AutodeskVault") during a clean install if it does not already exist, but I believe it will use whatever is currently configured during an upgrade.
I have the same problem on a new installation of Vault professional 2012, Full Replication. I notice the same issues as Thimo. i only do not see anything showing in the VLOG timestamped at the time of the error. what I do see are sop exceptions which I believe are unrelated.
Copy Design works on single files. Will not work on 2 or more.
i have attached our vlog as well
Hope you can help :-)
Hi Dave and Jeremy,
I've checked and rechecked the permissions for user "autodeskvault" and made sure it has full access to al the folders.
It did not work.
Next I've restarted the server on which Vault Server works to make shure everything works correctly.
Still doesn't work.
What I do not understand, is that it is possible to copy design a single file (makes no differents between iam, ipt or idw), but as soon as I want to copy design multiple files it goes wrong.
I also made a totaly new testpart and assembly in a sepperate folder. Checking in and out is no problem, but copy design stays the same error, only once I had one other error (in Dutch):
Exeption of HRESULT: 0x80004005 (E_Fail).
I tried this new part and assembly also on other computers (Windows XP, Windows 7), but copy design stays the same with the error:
Our supplier asked to send him our Vault Backup so if he can find the problem. Over 1 week I have an update trainging at our supplier, so I hope to solve it, but better it would be to have it before!
