So we're looking for a Digital Asset Management system. Since we use the Master Collection, times 14, so an Adobe solution would be great!
We found Adobe Drive 4 to be a perfect fit for us...
However getting started has been a pain in the ***....
We have a Mac Pro, with 2 x quadcore 3.2's, 32 GB of RAM, 1 x 256GB SSD, 26 TB eSATA and Firewire 800 connectors... Installed on it is the Master Collection, OSX Server and Adobe Drive, that's it!
Fast forward to yesterday as my ip address, 10.0.0.108, as I type in the Adobe CQ Digital Asset Management details, server url, username, password, desplay name, I get the following error...
"The server could not be connected"
com.adobe.drive.connector.api.exception.RemoteSystemNotFoundException: Failed to connect repository
I've tried everything I can think of to get Adobe Drive 4 connected so I can get our assests under control... I'm at my wits end an need help getting this up and running..
I'm not sure if this is too difficult a question? One that's asked a lot? There's not a lot of feedback for this product... Only install steps, that I've followed implicently...
What is the repository? Do I need to install a Database? Where does the "respository" live? When I can connect to the server via http from the browser why won't Drive connect to it?
I'm assuming Drive and actually "see" the server and NOT connect to it?
ANY help, and I mean any help, would be greatly appreciated...
First, here is a link to the Adobe Drive help documentation: http://helpx.adobe.com/drive.html
Do you already have Adobe CQ DAM rolled out? Since you can connect to your Adobe CQ DAM via the browser, I believe the answer is yes, but want to confirm. What version of the DAM are you using?
no we, I'm guessing, don't have Adobe CQ DAM installed... I installed OSX Server and Drive 4 along with the master collection... Where would I install Adobe CQ DAM from?
However, if you're asking about Drive, we installed 4... that's all we installed, that and the OSX Server
You’ll need to identify an asset management system to work with…either from Adobe or a number of outside vendors. To fully enable the Adobe Drive connection to a DAM server, one needs an Adobe Drive plug-in (what we call connectors) to interface with the DAM. Adobe Drive includes a connector that is designed to work with Adobe’s CQ DAM, now Adobe Experience Manager DAM. We also include a generic CMIS compliant connector that will work with servers that implement the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) specification. There are also custom connectors available from third-party vendors that are designed to work with their DAM systems.
