Configuring folder redirection

You can configure folder redirection using the Windows Properties window. The advantage to using this method is that the Windows user can configure folder redirection without assistance from the SVM administrator.

Procedure

  1. In Windows Explorer, right-click the folder that you want to redirect to a network share.
  2. Click Properties.
    Properties for the share you selected are displayed.
  3. In the Shortcut tab, click Target and specify the path to the network location where you want to redirect the selected folder.
    For example, if you want to redirect a folder to the data folder in a home directory that is mapped to Q:\, specify Q:\data as the target.
  4. Click OK.
