easa-share folder contains the configuration of Databases and Emails. It must be shared to grant a remote SYSTEM account access to those settings (the account that is running tomcat on the remote server with JSF, Excel or EASA Web Service).
Remote servers running JSF, Excel or EASA Web Services will need remote access to the
easa-share folder located on the main EASA Server. Remote Compute Servers don't require access and as a result environments where all remote servers are Compute Servers do not need this configuration.
During installation time, EASA asks for the network path to
easa-share in a host name or IP address format.
\\<Host name OR IP>\easa-share
While the IP address can be used as well, using the name of the host is recommended.
Setting the network path on an already existing installation involves editing the
shared.properties file found in the
EASAServerData folder, (uncommenting, if necessary, and) changing the shared.path property to the desired network path, made up of the host name/IP and easa-share, as shown above.
