A host is any computer that stores files. Host identification includes both computers that store files for a long term and computers used for short term processing, such as PDF generation.
To store and manipulate physical files such as documents and drawings, users, organizations, and vaults must be created and then related to a host object. To uniquely identify each directory location on each host where the files are stored, a vault object must be created. The file storage vault is determined by conditions on the relationship between interfaces on the object and the vault.
