In addition to installing the file server software, you must also set up the file service virtual directories on the remote file server. Remote file services can be configured using either of two methods:
Set up the virtual directories using SmartPlant Foundation Server Manager.
Set up the virtual directories manually.
It is recommended to use Server Manager to configure the file services on the remote file server.
The site you create for hosting the remote file service is not a fully functional SmartPlant Foundation site. It can be used only for the remote file service. You cannot log on to this site in the Desktop Client and access data.
