Apr 25, 2016

To disable a StorageZones Controller

Note: Use this procedure if each StorageZones Controller has a different external address. Disable a controller from the NetScaler interface if you use the same external address for all StorageZones Controllers.

Disable a StorageZones Controller before taking the server off-line for maintenance.

  1. In the ShareFile web interface, click Admin and then click StorageZones.
  2. Click the zone name and then click the StorageZones Controller hostname.
  3. Clear the Enabled check box and then click Save Changes.
  4. Restart the IIS server of all zone members.

To delete a StorageZones Controller

Deleting a StorageZones Controller does not delete the data or SCKeys.txt. If you are deleting a primary StorageZones Controller, demote it before continuing.

  1. In the ShareFile web interface, click Admin and then click StorageZones.
  2. Click the zone name and then click the StorageZones Controller hostname.
  3. Click Delete.
  4. Restart the IIS server of all zone members.

To redeploy a StorageZones Controller

No information is lost when you redeploy a StorageZones Controller.

  1. Uninstall StorageZones from the server.
  2. In the ShareFile web interface, click Admin > StorageZones, and then select your zone. Do not delete the zone.
  3. Select the StorageZones Controller and delete it.
  4. Install StorageZones. Do not register it yet.
  5. Run the StorageZones Controller configuration wizard to join the StorageZones Controller to a zone and complete the registration.
  6. Restart the IIS server of all zone members.
