How to configure a Virtual Directory VA


An IIS site can add a Virtual Directory, for example:

If my base account is located under the path:
C:\Program Files\Sphera\ServerDirector\accounts\

In my site - I have a real path to:
C:\Program Files\Sphera\ServerDirector\accounts\\WWW\images\

My required Virtual Directory is "temp" which will point to images\1\

So, when I will enter:

I will be redirect to:\images\1\

Add a Virtual Directory VA with the following settings:
Virtual Directory Name "temp"
Relative Directory Path "images/1"
Adjust your File System Permissions and IIS Permissions as you wish.

Protect the Virtual Directory with a password:
You can remove the anonymous user option - Anonymous User Permitted. This will protect the Virtual Directory with a username and password.
All VDS users (like email accounts users) can use their name and password to get through the Virtual Directories.
