A few Items I noticed
Here are a few observations. They may overlap to some extent with observations by other people.
Overall I find the Server fast and stable ( for a few hours of testing at least).
An attempt to “Check out” a file results in a message “The method or operation is not implemented”
When I make changes on one machine, the changes do not appear on the second machine till the focus comes back to the photo that has been changed. This is potentially confusing if two or more people are working on the same set of photos. I would assume that once "Check Out" is implemented, this will be the way to avoid problems, at least for disciplined users.
When I attempt to create a new shared catalog (NewCat), Daminion created the new catalog, but with the same contents as the default NetCatalog. Adding files to the NewCat also adds them to NetCatalog. It appears to be two names, one catalog. The “Name” can even be different on the two machines.
I tried adding some files from the laptop to the server catalog from the server machine. I checked off the “Upload files to the Server” box, but it does not appear that the files were actually copied to the server. The Properties - “Folder” still shows the original location, and C:\ProgramData\Daminion Software\Daminion Server\Data is empty.
On the Server machine the menu selection “Item/Locate in Explorer” reports ( Unable to locate “ ) including the single quote. On the Laptop client the selection is greyed out.
On the Server Machine, “Open with” does not work for any files. On the Laptop Client, “Open with” works for files that are stored on the Laptop, but, after downloading the file, results in an “Unhandled Exception” error for files actually stored on the Server.
Guess that will have to do for now.
