7.1 Assigning a Managed Path to Existing Group-based or Container-based Storage

A collaborative managed path attribute is created by File Dynamics when the Active Directory schema is extended. The attribute is used to associate a Group or container object with a managed path.

In this procedure, you assign a managed path to a Group or container object that has existing collaborative storage and then assign the storage path.
