PostMon Nov 13, 2017 3:18 pm

What does that "Project Server " do, we got with 14.1?

In this case, the manual would not help you.

There's 2 features in this manager that I can't figure out:

Enable Sharing
Asks for authorization, but nothing happens when I click the button. I have no clue what this is even supposed to do.

Create Access Key (.resolvedbkey)
This creates an XML formatted file with the IP and credentials of the database, but there is no way to actually import this file in the actual Resolve application.

UPDATE:

your pg_hba has to explicitly have 127.0.0.1 listed for the new Project Server to work on Windows at least..

I can't even get it to open, all that pops up is "DaVinci Resolve Project Server connection error. The PostgreSQL server is either not running or the password is incorrect". Running Postgres on Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update.

127.0.0.1 should never be removed. That's the local connection to the server.

If our past procedures for modifying pg_hba.conf are followed, we add a new line to the bottom of the file for allowing same subnet access to the server from remote systems.

But we leave the original 127.0.0.1 line in place, so things on the local system can connect, without having to use an explicit IP address. That's what the Project Server app requires to communicate with the server.

Are there any step-by-step instructions somewhere for setting this up?
I'm only used to disk, but I'm interested in moving to this workflow.

Why is it possible to set my own password when creating a database but it is not possible to specify it when the project server starts. Why the password should be "DaVinci"? Credentials user=postgres and password=DaVinci does not correspond to the logic of the best unsecure way of authentication which is user=user and password=password.

Dear developers, you either give the opportunity to set my own user and password.
Either keep honor distance from data protection and skip down to user=user and password=password. In this case, the user will clearly understand that the connection is not secure and will act accordingly.
Do not mislead people!

Thanks, Dwaine!
