Content-Repository for Windows

We currently have windows server 2003 running ZCM 10.0.2, we are winding up the last few tests before deployment. The one last thing that we wanted to see if we could accomplish was changing the content repo to a Lacie box. I checked the documentation and under the zcm10_system_admin pdf it seems as though you can only change the content repo if it is connected as another drive to the server. Is it possibly to dump the images directly to the LACIE? If so, how would one go about accomplishing this?

Re: Content-Repository for Windows

I presume the LACIE is some type of Network Attached Storage.
The answer to that question is no.

You would have to install from the ZCM Server or Removable Media such as a
DVD.
It's not possible to bring an Image down from a general Windows Share.

ähmm.. no.. you can.. but only if you cifs mount the share..

the question asked though was about the content repo..

you can move that to a NAS / SAN if you are able to mount that device
inside the content repo location.. it is not possible to use a UNC path to
that device

Re: Content-Repository for Windows

Marcus,
i know this thread is old but are you able to explain how I could mount the share via CIFS into the windows system?
I have a NAS unit which i beleive has the ability to utilise a CIFS approach and if this works it could solve numerous issues we are having

Thank you in advance

hmm windows based zcm server?

I would say in this case it will be quite hard as IIRC windows only likes
mounts at drive level

if you have a linux based server it would be just a normal mount command at
the right place or via a symbolic link
