Server Name and DNS Cname


Since OpenAsset is installed on your server, you can name that server whatever you would like. You can also create a DNS Cname entry to create an internal URL of your choice. Be sure to contact OpenAsset Support if you have any questions or need assistance. 

Server Name

You can name your OpenAsset server whatever you want. If, after a period of time, you want to change the name of the server you need to consider that any InDesign documents containing links to OpenAsset images on that server will break after changing the name. 

DNS Cname

You can create a DNS Cname entry which points to the OpenAsset server. This would allow you to keep the server name as is, while customizing what the user enters to access OpenAsset. For example, you could create a DNS Cname called "images.example.com".
