Hi all.
Have spend about 1 and half day browsing and reading in Wiki and forums.
Have seen "similar" situations to our situation but not exactly the same.

And there are some points in "concepts" that I'm not sure.

Situation.
Machine A -> Alfresco Install
Machine B -> SQL Server
Machine C -> Netapp Storage Machine with a share that we want to use as MAIN share for storing the content.

Resume:
change C:\alfresco\alf_data to point to a \\IP\share or similar, using SMB, CIFS or other protocol. Microsoft Family only.

The URLS that I have consult are:
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/File_Server_Configuration
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Repository_Configuration
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Configuring_the_CIFS_and_web_servers_for_Kerberos/AD_integration
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Server_Configuration

http://forums.alfresco.com/en/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=14391

And more, from wiki and from forum, installation and configuration.

I know that the files tu change are file.servers.xml and so on, but in no place have found a way to "modify" default localtion on alfresco to a direct share, and how will be to integrate that share with Kerberos.

example:
<alfresco-config area="file-servers">

   <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="CIFS Server">
     <serverEnable enabled="true"/>
      <host name="${localname}A"/>
      <comment>Alfresco CIFS Server</comment>

¿Must I change Host name in this secction to my MACHINE C IP ?
¿Is the CIFS SERVER only the provider and what I must change is the default conf. of that cifs server ?

In the Second case…
 <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Filesystems">
     <filesystems>
       
       <!– Alfresco repository access shared filesystem –>
         <filesystem name="Alfresco">
            <store>workspace://SpacesStore</store>
            <rootPath>/app:company_home</rootPath>

         <!– Add a URL file to each folder that links back to the web client –>
         <urlFile>
               <filename>__AlfrescoClient.url</filename>
               <webpath>http://${localname}:8080/alfresco/</webpath>
            </urlFile>

         <!– Mark locked files as offline –>
          <offlineFiles/>

¿Is that secction the correct to modify the main storage?
Is there any way to CHANGE default root store for archives to another system or machine ?

How will I give permision to Cifs Server but not to a direct \\…\share from users ? (without using firewall)

thanks!!

I really need that help. I have browsed and reader and trying to conf without success.
