Configuring a File Server

Configuring a File Server


A file server stores the files to be downloaded by clients. The Commander can function as a file server. Before configuring the Commander as a file server, ensure that there is sufficient storage space for the files. Generally, a third-party server is used as the file server on an EasyDeploy network.

Supported file servers include FTP, TFTP, and SFTP servers. Using an SFTP server is recommended.

In the following operations, a Huawei switch is used as the 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 user login page, user name, authentication mode, service mode, and SFTP service authorized directory for the SSH user.

    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, save the files to be downloaded in the working directory of the file server.

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.
