Welcome to Adobe® InDesign® CC Server. This document contains late-breaking product information, updates, and troubleshooting tips not covered in the InDesign Server documentation.
For an updated list of system requirements, visit http://www.adobe.com/in/products/indesignserver/tech-specs.html.
InDesign CC Server is now a 64-bit application to leverage RAM beyond 3 GB on both Mac and Windows. With support for 64-bit architecture, general processing becomes faster and more RAM can be made available to the application.
In InDesign CS6 Server, when a client requests server to begin a new session, the session gets blocked if the server currently does not have a free worker thread in the thread-pool. The client remains blocked until a session is initiated and this could be a problem for some clients depending on their workflow. Once a thread is returned to the pool by some module in the application, the new thread is picked and a session is initiated.
Now in InDesign CC Server, the client can dynamically communicate to the server whether the client wants to get blocked or not. Also, the client can specify maximum time limit for which it is willing to get blocked.
For session support configuration, you can provide the following two (optional) command line arguments at the time of server launch:
In CS6 or earlier, name of a resource file is restricted to 31 characters and the characters beyond this limit are trimmed from the name. Now this limit is removed in InDesign CC Server.
In CS6, some components or modules of the server are not IPv6 compliant. Those components are made IPv6 compliant. Now InDesign CC Server is completely IPv6 compliant.
The InDesign CC Server installer installs fonts into a default system font directory. Many of these fonts are newer versions of fonts installed by InDesign CS6 Server. If the installer finds older versions of these fonts in the default system font directory, it will uninstall the older versions, and save them to a new directory.
The default system font directory is:
The older fonts will be saved in the new directory:
Mac: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/SavedFonts/current
Windows: :\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\SavedFonts\current
This new directory will also contain a file named "Read Me.html" which lists the saved fonts, and the version numbers of the new and old font files.
You can re-install the older fonts by deleting the new font files from the default system font directory, and moving the old files back into that directory.
To find out how to install additional fonts, visit the installation page http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_fontinstall_en.
InDesign CC Server needs to be activated before it can be used. If the computer is online, activation is done automatically when you install. You need to provide your Adobe ID, and serial number when prompted by the installer. Unless the software is activated, you'll see an error, "Adobe InDesign Server’ is not properly licensed and will now quit."
If your computer is not connected to the internet, download and install Adobe Provisioning Toolkit Enterprise Edition (APTEE). You can serialize and activate the software using APTEE. You can download APTEE from the Creative Suite Enterprise Deployment page.
Software will not get deactivated during an offline uninstall. The computer must be online during uninstall to deactivate, else will lose an activation count.
To activate the Trial version, download and install Adobe Provisioning Toolkit Enterprise Edition (APTEE). You can use the trial for a period of 90 days.
