Media Shuttle Storage Servers provide the ability to customize your storage configuration in order to ensure that it meets your organizational requirements:
The default Media Shuttle storage configuration sends all transfers through UDP port 49221. Allowing Media Shuttle Storage Server to access multiple UDP ports can increase throughput for file transfers.
The resulting performance improvements depend on your configuration. Full bandwidth is generally available when multiple transfers are running concurrently, but performance may be limited by other constraints, such as disk speed, processing power, or memory allocations.
Before enabling multiple ports ensure:
To enable multiple ports:
Note: On-premises storage servers cannot enable multiple ports in deployments requiring server routing or relays.
If a proxy is not automatically detected during storage server installation, registration may fail.
To resolve the issue, you can edit the property configuration file in your installation directory to access your proxy configuration script.
After configuring your storage server for proxy use, you can register your storage server.
To edit configuration properties to support a proxy:
Verify that you have access to the URL for your proxy configuration script by opening the URL in a browser or by retrieving the script using
config.properties in the Media Shuttle Storage Server installation directory.
C:\program files\Signiant Media Shuttle\bin\tomcat\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\config.properties
PROXY_AUTOMATIC_CONFIGURATION_SCRIPT property to point to the proxy configuration script.
Save your changes.
In some cases your operating system may not be configured for international characters when installing Media Shuttle storage server software.
To configure international character set support:
export LC_ALL=$LANGto the end of the file.
>./siginit restartto restart your Media Shuttle services.
If the LANG variable is not set, this procedure may not have any effect and you may need to set the LANG to your language's UTF-8 setting.
C:\Program Files\Signiant Media Shuttle\bin\tomcat\bin.
set "JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Dfile.encoding=UTF8"to the end of the file.
There are two methods for setting up a storage server to use a shared storage location via a UNC path.
You can configure the shared storage file server to allow access when using accounts local to the storage server, e.g. the local System account, or you can configure the Media Shuttle Process Controller and Web Server services to run as an account that has access to the shared storage.
If you configure the Media Shuttle services, the account must be a member of the server’s local administrators group. It must be able to run a service and have access to the file server and files.
To test if the account has access to files:
If you are prompted for login credentials, adjust the account permissions to remove the login requirement. Once your account is properly configured, you can use shared storage via a UNC path.
