B.2 Understand how the application stores, names, and versions files so useful policies can be created

The more you understand about how an application stores files, the more opportunities you can create for integrating the application with Dynamic File Services.

This example focuses on one way that Novell Vibe OnPrem stores photos. When you upload a photo to Vibe OnPrem, it creates a thumbnail file for the photo in the cachefilestore subfolder structure and places the photo image in the filerepository subfolder structure. Because photos can be large, we want to set up a pair and policy so that photos are moved to a secondary storage location.

  1. Create a pair where the primary path is on the filerepository folder.
