Sharing Same Working Directory in StarTeam with numerous users.
Information in this Brief applies to:
If two or more users share the same working directory in StarTeam, when user 1 updates a file, the other users see a file status of unknown.
The files that are used to record the file status"s are, by default, stored in each user"s home directories. If you are using the same working directory then the status for the file will be out of date after one user makes a modification. What is recommended in this situation is to store the file status in each folder of the working directory. Use Tools | Personal Options... to set the the file status repository to Per Folder. Each user will need to do this.
