Complete the following tasks, in the order presented, to install and set up StorageZones Controller, StorageZones for ShareFile Data, and StorageZone Connectors.

  1. Configure NetScaler for StorageZones Controller

    You can use NetScaler as a DMZ proxy for StorageZones Controller.

  2. Create a network share for private data storage

    StorageZones for ShareFile Data requires a network share for your private data, even if you store ShareFile files in a supported third-party storage system.

  3. Install an SSL certificate

    A StorageZones Controller that hosts standard zones requires an SSL certificate. A StorageZones Controller that hosts restricted zones and uses an internal address, does not require an SSL certificate.

  4. Prepare your server for ShareFile data

    IIS and ASP.NET setup is required for StorageZones for ShareFile data and for StorageZone Connectors.

  5. Install StorageZones Controller and create a StorageZone

  6. Verify your StorageZones Controller setup

  7. Change the default zone for user accounts

    By default, existing and newly provisioned user accounts use the ShareFile-managed cloud storage as the default zone.

  8. Specify a proxy server for StorageZones

    The StorageZones Controllers console enables you to specify a proxy server for StorageZones Controllers. You can also specify a proxy server using other methods.

  9. Configure the domain controller to trust the StorageZones Controller for delegation

    Configure the domain controller to support NTLM or Kerberos authentication on network shares or SharePoint sites.

  10. Join a secondary StorageZones Controller to a StorageZone

    To configure a StorageZone for high availability, connect at least two StorageZones Controllers to it.
