To configure an S3 bucket as a data source:
- Configure AWS.
- Configure the SST Application Server.
- Add the S3 Data Source in the Stewardship Tier.
- Under the File shares section, set the Type to SMB.
- Set the Authentication Method to Active Directory (not Guest Access).
- Add the customer’s domain and user to the "User and group file share access" screen in both the Allowed users and Allowed groups sections.
- Identify the IP address of the gateway for the file share. S3 provides an option called "S3 fileshare storage gateway" which, like NFS, is profile based. The IP 10.XX.XXX.XX is a virtual appliance on which the storage gateway is configured.
Configure the SST Application Server
- Map a network drive to the remote share \\10.XX.XX.XX\<myBucket> using the credentials of the domain\user.
- NOTE: You do not need to grant permissions to Network Service, IUSR, or any other
- modify access on this mapped drive.
- Change the identity of the IIS Application Pool to the customer’s domain\user and restart IIS.
- Change the logon account of the Cransoft Service to the customer’s domain\user and restart IIS.
- NOTE: Ensure the domain\user has Modify access on the C:\BOA app folders, the
- D:\BOA Export folder and any other folders as described in Set Up and Configure File Paths on the Server in the installation manual. The domain\user could already be part of a group which has access so there may be no need to explicitly grant Modify permissions.
Add the S3 Data Source in the Stewardship Tier
Register the S3 data source with a Data Source Type of Local File. Refer to Register a Data Source in the help for more information.
- NOTE: As part of adding the data source, enter \\10.XX.XX.XX\<myBucket>\ in the Path
- field on the Vertical View of the Data Sources page.
NOTE: The trailing slash (\) is required.
