Network File Share connector configuration

Jan 11, 2018

When installing the App Layering appliance, you set up a network file share that you can then use 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.

When to select the Network File Share instead of a Connector Configuration

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

Network File Share location

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