    If you are updating an existing deployment, you cannot change the Deployment Folder. If you create a new instance with a different Deployment Folder, the old deployment is not updated and the package must be redeployed to client machines under the new Deployment Folder location.


    Files in the Deployment Folder selected are overwritten.

  2. Enter a Share Name in the field provided. This is the name that the Deployment Folder will be shared as to users.

    The Share Name must be unique. You cannot enter the name of an existing share. If you are updating an existing instance, you cannot change the Share Name.

  3. Enter the External Name of the server hosting the Deployment Folder selected, or accept the default value presented. This is the name users will use to access the server. The default value is the machine name of the machine containing the shared folder.

    The External Name field is only available if Advanced Mode is selected on the Welcome to the Deployment Creation Wizard dialog. If you are updating an existing instance, you cannot change the External Name.

  4. Click Next. The Folder Share Permissions dialog is displayed:

  5. Click Add to add additional users or groups, or select a user or group to remove and click Remove to remove it. If the users and groups presented are acceptable, proceed to the next step.

  8. Click Next. Go to the Service Location and Deployment Configuration steps to complete the installation.
