Disable, delete, or redeploy a storage zones controller

To disable a storage zones controller

Note:

Use this procedure if each storage zones controller has a different external address. Disable a controller from the Citrix ADC interface if you use the same external address for all storage zones controllers.

Disable a storage zones controller before taking the server off-line for maintenance.

  1. In the ShareFile web interface, click Admin and then click Storage zones.
  2. Click the zone name and then click the storage zones controller host name.
  3. Clear the enabled check box and then click Save Changes.
  4. Restart the IIS server of all zone members.

To delete a storage zones controller

  1. In the ShareFile web interface, click Admin and then click Storage zones.
  2. Click the zone name and then click the storage zones controller host name.
  3. Click Delete.
  4. Restart the IIS server of all zone members.

To redeploy a storage zones controller
