ShareFile StorageZone Controller Installation Checklist

What Would Dan Do?

Here is a checklist when installing an on-premises StorageZone Controller. I have included sections for both native StorageZones “ShareFile Data” as well as StorageZones Connector.

If you lose the passphrase, you cannot reinstall StorageZones, join additional StorageZones Controllers to the StorageZone, or recover the StorageZone if the server fails.

Note: The encryption key appears in the root of the shared storage path. Losing the encryption key file, SCKeys.txt, immediately breaks access to all StorageZone files. Be sure to back up the encryption key file as part of your normal datacenter procedures.
