Network File Share connector configuration

Jan 11, 2018

After installing the App Layering appliance (Enterprise Layer Manager), set up a network file share. You can use the share as a Connector Configuration when creating layers and publishing Layered Images. This Connector Configuration contains the appliance's Network File Share credentials and location so you can deploy a Packaging Machine to the File Share when creating layers, or publishing Layered Images.

Each Connector Configuration is set up to access a storage location through a specific account.

Network File Share location

The name of the Network File Share Connector Configuration includes its location. Look for the App Layering folder at the top level of the Network File Share. For details, see Configure a file share for the App Layering Appliance.

When you publish Layered Images to a provisioning service for which we do not yet have a Connector, you can select the Network File Share Connector Configuration. You can then copy the Layered Image from the network file share to the correct location for provisioning servers.

When to select the Network File Share as your Connector Configuration

When you publish Layered Images to a provisioning service for which we do not yet have a Connector, you can select the Network File Share Connector Configuration. You can then copy the Layered Image from the network file share to the correct location for provisioning servers.
