|Launch New Sync Share Wizard from Server Manager|
|Provide the local path where user folders will be created under, type C:\SalesShare, and then click Next .||
There are 2 options to specify the local path:
If you have a local path that is configured to be an SMB share, such as a folder redirection share, you can simply select the first option “Select by file share”. For example, as the screenshot shown above, I had one SMB share created on this server, which points to the C:\finshare location. I can simply enable the path “c:\finshare” for sync by select the first radio button.
If you are creating sync share first, ((without the SMB share configuration), you can provide the local path directly in the second option, which I’m using in the demo.
|Select the user folder format, choose the default user alias, and click Next .||
There are 2 options you can select from the UI:
Using user alias . This is selected by default, and it is compatible with other technologies such as folder redirection or home folders Using alias@domain . This option ensures the uniqueness of the folder name for users across domains.
Admin can choose a subfolder “Document” as the folder to be synced to devices, and leaving other folders still functioning with Folder redirection. To do so, check “Sync only the following subfolder”
Sync only the following subfolder:
By default, all the folders/files under the user folder will be synced to the devices. This checkbox allows the admin to specify a single subfolder to be synced to the devices. For example, the user folder might contain the following folders as part of a Folder Redirection deployment:
|Provide the sync share name and description (optional), and click Next|
|Assign security groups for sync share access by clicking the Add button and entering the Sales security group (created in section User and Security group creation). Then click Next||
By default, the admin will not be able to access the user data on the server. If you want to have admin access to user data, uncheck the “
Disable inherited permissions and grant users exclusive access to their files
As part of this assignment, the share creation will modify the NTFS folder permission on the sync root, to ensure users in the security group can create their folders, and access documents to only their own folder.
The table below shows the permissions which will be configured as part of the sync share creation:
|Define device policies, and then click Next .||
Encryption policies requires the documents in Work Folders on the client devices to be encrypted with the Enterprise ID. Data encrypted with the Enterprise ID will have a different key from the EFS key which is used to encrypt personal documents on the same device. The separation allows the admin to wipe only the Work Folders data, while preserve the personal data on the device.
The password policy enforces the following configuration on user PCs and devices:
If the device doesn’t meet the policy, user will not be able to configure the Work Folders.
The policy enforcement on the client devices is not in the Preview release. It will be in the RTM release.
|Check the sync share settings, and click Create.|
User can find the setup link in
Control Panel->System and Security->Work Folders
|Provide the user email address or Work Folders Server URL, and then click Next .||If the client machine is domain joined, user will not be prompted for credentials.|
|Specify where to store Work Folders on the device|
|Consent to the device policy, and then click Setup Work Folders .|
Work Folders is now configured on the device. You can open File Explorer to see Work Folders.
