How to change the DLO Network User Data Folder [NUDF] Storage Location on a NAS Device with Emulated OS, which is not supported according to Symantec's SCL/HCL
By design, DLO NUDF Storage Location cannot be created on a NAS Box which doesn't have a drive letter. This configuration has also not been tested and is not currently supported by Symantec.
NAS Box without a drive letter as a Storage location for the users could be used. User's data could still be effectively/efficiently backed up and restored from these non-supported NAS Boxes per the following:
This NAS device will not be listed as a Storage Location on the DLO Setup Console under Storage Locations.
Select Second Radio Button => "Move the Contents of the user data folder to an alternate location". (Figure 3)
5. Click Browse to select the Path [NAS without Drive letter] (Figure 4)
6. In regular Movement we get the path as \\Server name\Folder\%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%
However in this case we cannot get the %USERDOMAIN% and %USERNAME% we have to manually type the user name Example: jquinn
7. Start the Movement by clicking on the Start button above.
8. Now the user will be moved. Backups and restores will normally work without any issues.
NOTE: This is a manual process and will have to be performed for every user as the NAS device which does not have a drive letter or a Windows OS.
