In certain cases you might want to access a UNC share from a VCO instance. This is especially true when you have a mainly Windows based environment with more than one VCO instance. In addition it comes in handy when you implement the VCO Powershell Bridge I presented earlier.
- First you have to run the VCO service under a service account (as described in vCO: Write a file to a network share) that has some kind of network access permissions on the target system. So a LocalSystem or LocalService account will not do.
And it might be best to first interactively test and verify the permissions are correct.
- Then you have to adjust the access permissions in the configuration file (check also the official documentation):
%ProgramFiles%\VMware\Orchestrator\app-server\server\vmo\conf\js-io-rights.conf r = read w = write x = execute +rwx \\\\ServerName\\CommonVcoShare$\\
- Restart VCO service after you finished editing your configuration.
