    What is required to convert an undocked machine into a networked workstation install?


    It is not technically possible to convert the current undocked installing, it will need to be removed and then replaced.  Below are steps to remove the undocked installation and to replace it with a networked install:

     


    Resolution

     

    1 - Ensure all undocked machines are up to date on synchronization.
    2 - Uninstall GoldMine from the undocked machine via Programs and Features.
    3 - Open SQL server Management Studio and  connect.
    4 - Expand databases >> Delete the GoldMine database by right clicking >> Delete >> choose the option to 'close existing connections' >> OK.
    5 - Close SQL Server Management Studio.
    6 - Uninstall SQL from the undocked machine via Programs and Features.
    7 - Reboot machine.
    8 - Install GoldMine on the machine as a networked workstation by:
    A - Map a drive to the GoldMine server root directory.
    B - Reboot workstation (This is necessary for the UAC change to take affect, otherwise GMPE will not install properly.
    C - Copy the gmsetup.exe for your version of GoldMine (usually on the server under GoldMine\Setup\GoldMine) to the workstation desktop.
    D - Right click on the gmsetup.exe and select "Run as Administrator" (this is very important, otherwise GMPE will not install correctly).
    E - Install GoldMine as desired.

    For additional information please see the Installation Guide for the version of GoldMine you are currently using.
