AppsAnywhere and other services will require access to a network share to store and provide access to resources.

Access

The Network File Share will need to be accessible to your servers and your app admins. No end user access is require

Sizing

• An initial 1TB storage space is recommended.
• This may need to increase as more apps are published.

We recommend use of a file server or SAN with at least weekly backups. Loss of Repository files or access may result in a service interruption.

Share access and modify permissions will be required for:
• The AppsAnywhere Support user account and your AppsAnywhere App Admin and AppsAnywhere System Admin AD security groups will need full access from the root share and all sub directories.

  • The Cloudpaging Service account needs access to the Repository share
