    1. Share the required directory in the Windows file system.

    Open the Windows Explorer and choose the directory that you want to release. Click with the secondary mouse button and choose Sharing.

    From the Sharing tab, choose Share This Folder. Click on Permissions, and add a user with administrator rights to the list.

    Give the user all permissions for accessing the directory.

    If necessary, you can release the directory for all users and define the permissions for the folder.

    Confirm your entries and close the dialog box.

    2. Configure a network path.

    This step is necessary if you want to access a remote system. Enter the path to the released directory.

    If you want to access a WINDOWS system from a UNIX system, activate the parameter Use jCIFS.

    3. Now create a File System Repository Manager.

    Enter the System ID of the Windows system into Windows Landscape System.

    In Security-Manager, choose W2kSecurityManager.

    You should note that when using the portal on Unix, you must store a file in the configuration of this security manager that contains the domain information for all WINDOWS remote server (see Security Manager).

    Enter the previously defined network path (Network Path) in Root Directory. If your documents are stored on the portal server, enter the relevant disk and directory, for example, C:\data.

    4. You carry out user mapping for the Windows system in the portal (see Specifying User Mapping).

    Enter the Windows user and domain in user mapping (in the form DOMAIN\USER).


    If you have carried out all the steps, you can now access documents and folders in the configured repository. Every time a document is accessed, the system checks whether the user has the necessary permissions.

    System principals are excluded by the check. Whether you have further access to documents depends on your permissions.
