BackgroundStarting with Windchill 220.127.116.11, packaging and delivery of Windchill DS is discontinued (remove), and the direct technical support by PTC of any specific Directory Server product is discontinued from Windchill 18.104.22.168.
In this model, a Directory Server is still part of the deployment architecture, but the support is equivalent as for other 3rd party components of the overall system. That is, PTC may refer cases that are traced to a specific Directory Server issue to the relevant software vendor.
