Network File Share connector configuration

Jan 11, 2018

When the App Layering appliance (Enterprise Layer Manager) is installed, 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.

Each Connector Configuration is set up to access a storage location by using a specific account. For more about Connectors and Connector Configurations, see About Connectors and Connector Configurations.

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.

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.
