Adding a Share

To create a share, you must supply a share name that is unique across all shares and the share path. Some protocols also support the inclusion of a comment or brief description of the share. Additionally, you must enable at least one of the available protocols.

While a single user interface is provided to create a share for all protocols, in actuality, a separate share is created for each protocol. You can remove individual sharing protocols from a share, without removing the share itself. However, removing all sharing protocols from a share will delete all versions of the share.

To add a share

  1. On the primary navigation bar, choose Shares.
  2. On the Shares page, choose Shares.
  3. In the Tasks list, choose New.
  4. On the General tab, type the share name and share path.
  5. Select the appropriate check box(es) to specify which types of protocols you want to enable.
  6. Use the protocol tabs to configure the specific properties of each type of share.
