Windows Network Drive Configuration (WND)

Introduction

Here are the steps to configure WND in the Appliance.

Windows Network Drive is avaialbe only in the Enterprise Editon of ownCloud.
You will need both of the following described steps for each share.
The steps need to be done in / on the docker host (appliance virtual machine) and not inside the docker container

WND Listener

Create a service following the instructions below that checks the share for changes:

  • For each WND mount point distinguished by a SERVER - SHARE pair,

    • place one copy of a file with following content under
      /etc/systemd/system/owncloud-wnd-listen-SERVER-SHARE.service

    • replacing the all upper case words SERVER, SHARE, USER and PASSWORD

    • in both, the filename and in the contents below with their respective values.
      Take care to also adjust the paths in WorkingDirectory and ExecStart according to your installation.

      [Unit]
      Description=ownCloud WND Listener for SERVER SHARE
      After=docker-app-owncloud.service
      Requires=docker-app-owncloud.service
      [Service]
      User=root
      Group=root
      WorkingDirectory=/root
      ExecStart=/usr/bin/univention-app shell owncloud occ wnd:listen -vvv SERVER SHARE USER PASSWORD
      Type=simple
      StandardOutput=journal
      StandardError=journal
      SyslogIdentifier=%n
      KillMode=process
      RestartSec=1
      Restart=always
  • Run once for each created file the following commands:

    sudo systemctl enable owncloud-wnd-listen-SERVER-SHARE.service
    sudo systemctl start  owncloud-wnd-listen-SERVER-SHARE.service

WND Process Queue

Create or add a crontab file in /etc/cron.d/oc-wnd-process-queue.

  • Make a crontab entry to run a script iterating over all SERVER SHARE pairs with an appropriate occ wnd:process-queue command. The commands must be strictly sequential. This can be done by using flock -n and tuning the -c parameter of occ wnd:process-queue

* * * * *     root  /usr/bin/univention-app shell owncloud occ wnd:process-queue -vvv SERVER SHARE
