You create a workspace on the Enterprise Analyzer server machine. Other users connect to the workspace from Enterprise Analyzer client machines. The workspace repository resides on a database server, and can be accessed by any user with database privileges to the repository.
The folder in which you plan to create workspaces must be shared with team members. It’s usually more convenient to share the folder before you create workspaces, but you can do it afterward if necessary, then refresh the workspace path.
It is the responsibility of the workspace creator to designate users for security policies. Perform this task as soon as you have finished creating the workspace, then periodically edit the list of users as required.
You can use Microsoft SQL Server Express to create a workspace on your local machine. Enterprise Analyzer creates a database for the workspace "on the fly," with no intervention on your part. If you do use SQL Server Express, keep in mind that the Windows user who creates the workspace must have been configured with appropriate permissions in SQL Server Express. The user who installed SQL Server Express will always have the appropriate permissions. See the SQL Server Express documentation for configuration instructions.
