We are in a joint venture with a firm in another city that wants us to hook up to their existing Revit server. They will maintain the central file and the Revit server will synchronize the remote locations.
I'm concerned about the hardware requirements. The Revit wiki help http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Revit/e...79-System_R179 requires:
- 2GHz/2 core processor
- 8G memory
- hard drive 7200 rpm
- gigabit ethernet
- MS NET 4
- Win Server 2008 R2
- T1 phone line (found this requirement elsewhere)
I can accept this for the central server that will hold the central file. What disturbs me is the Wiki states "Each machine on which Revit Server is to be installed must meet the following requirements" Are they saying that everyone on the team requires this Sherman tank? It doesn't make sense; what user machine would be running Server 2008?
We are currently working on Revit 2012 and everyone on the team can run it, though some machines are a little slower than others. The T1 line is an issue because we are on a high floor of an older building that does not have fiber optic service. We exchange link files with our consultants via FTP and this has been working so far.
