Configuring a File Server

Configuring a File Server


A file server saves the files to be downloaded to unconfigured devices. You can use a switch or server as the file server. Supported file servers include FTP, TFTP, and SFTP servers. Using an SFTP server is recommended.


The following procedure configures a Huawei switch as an SFTP server. If a third-party server is used, configure it according to the server manual.


  1. Enable SFTP.

    For details, see Set SFTP server parameters in the Managing Files When the Device Functions as an SFTP Server.

  2. Configure the Secure Shell (SSH) user login interface, user name, authentication method, service type, and SFTP working directory.

    For details, see Configure the VTY user interface for SSH users to log in to the device and Configure SSH user information in the Managing Files When the Device Functions as an SFTP Server.

Follow-up Procedure

After configuring the file server, upload the files required by the unconfigured devices to the working directory of the file server. When uploading files, ensure the working directory of the file server has sufficient space to save the files.

If many devices need to download files from the file server, set the maximum number of concurrent connections on the file server to a large value. If the value is not set to an appropriate number, some devices have to wait until other devices complete downloading, delaying the deployment.

To ensure security of the file server, configure a unique user name for the file server. After the EasyDeploy process is complete, disable the file server function.
