I had followed the steps to share a library with mysql.

The issue is that on the second pc there are no thumbs

in this article is said it should happen authomatically:

Most times it seems to happen right a way when setting up additional computers, but sometimes it doesn't and it seems to wait for XBMC's normal timer or whatever to check and see if new thumbs are needed. You can force this so you don't have to wait (it's something like once every 24 hours) by deleting the textures.db file from userdata/Database/ and then restarting XBMC, which will force XBMC to check and see if things need thumbs again. Or, you can pre-generate thumbnails using MilhouseVH's awesome texture cache script: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=158373

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Yes. XBMC has 6 different databases, and only 3 (maybe 4) can be shared. Videos, Music, and 1 or 2 PVR DBs. View modes and thumbnails are always local to each client, and are not the kind of database you would want to share.
