Managing file servers

The Fileservers page handles the properties for the CIFS and FTP servers.
  1. Open the Admin Console, and then click Fileservers.
  2. On the Fileservers page, click Edit.
    You see the Edit: Fileservers page. The page is divided up into sections for Filesystem properties, CIFS properties, and FTP properties.
  3. Set the Filesystem property:
    Filesystem property Example setting What is it?
    Filesystem Name Alfresco This is the name given to the file system when using CIFS, WebDAV, or FTP. For example, Alfresco.
  4. Set the CIFS properties for connecting to Alfresco using CIFS:
    CIFS property Example setting What is it?
    CIFS Enabled enabled This checkbox enables or disables the CIFS server.
    Host Announce enabled This checkbox enables the announcement of the CIFS server to the local domain/workgroup so that it shows up in Network Places/Network Neighborhood.
    Domain   This is the domain or workgroup to which the server belongs. This defaults to the domain/workgroup of the server, if not specified.
    Server Name ${localname}A This is the host name for the Alfresco CIFS server. This can be a maximum of 16 characters and must be unique on the network. You can use the special token {localname} in place of the local server's host name and a unique name can be generated by prepending/ appending to it.
    Session Timeout 900 This is the CIFS session timeout value in seconds. The default session timeout is 15 minutes. If no I/O occurs on the session within this time then the session will be closed by the server. Windows clients send keep-alive requests, usually within 15 minutes.
