15.0 Setting Up Mirrored Folders

A mirrored folder is a library folder within Novell Vibe that is synchronized with a folder located on a system drive outside of Vibe. When you perform basic actions (adding subfolders and files, modifying files, deleting folders and files) by using the Vibe interface or by accessing the file on the drive, the change is reflected in the other interface. The advantage to using mirrored files is that you can apply Vibe tools to files on a drive, including tools such as text search, workflow, and discussion (in the form of comments applied to the entry in the library folder).

Initial setup of mirrored folder resource drivers is done during Novell Vibe installation, as described in Configuring Mirrored Folder Resource Drivers in Advanced Installation and Reconfiguration in the Novell Vibe 3.2 Installation Guide.

The Vibe Installation program enables you to set up as many as three mirrored folder resource drivers. If you need more than three, you must manually edit the installer.xml file, then update your Vibe installation.

After you set up the mirrored folder resource drivers by using the Installation program, you must perform additional mirrored folder configuration on the Vibe site.
