Shadow Folders with UNC Paths

Post by Beth » Wed Jun 12, 2013 4:01 pm

In order to use a UNC path for the Vault Shadow Folders, additional configuration is needed.

Run Vault under a domain user account.
Vault can be set up during install to run under a domain user account by selecting Custom in the IIS Process Model screen and entering a domain user.

Vault can also be changed to run under a domain user through the user of our Identity Switcher tool. The Identity Switcher tool can be found in the Power Toys section of the Vault downloads.

In some cases users need to make the target for the shadow folders a share and setting share permissions to allow the domain user account Vault uses read/write permissions.
