System Diagnostic Report Feature in CentreStack

Hi there. I’m Tom Roe, Product Evangelist for CentreStack. And in this video, I want to demonstrate how the new System Diagnostic Report works.

So, from the Cluster Admin Dashboard in the Web Portal, on the right-hand side, click System Diagnostic Report to get started. (Narrative continues below...)

This tool analyzes your installation to ensure that all the parameters are set-up correctly. To get a report on these parameters, simply click the text, “Start System Scan to Generate Report”.
As you can see, this tool quickly assesses your setup parameters and shows you items that need your attention.
Initially we decided to collect the most common settings where issues occur for new users of CentreStack, but in the weeks ahead, we will be adding more items to this list to make you aware of any other issues that may be present.  
That’s it for this video. I hope it was helpful for getting you started in understanding the System Diagnostic Report feature. Please like and share and don’t …

CentreStack WebDAV Server Support for Editing Documents with GoodReader on iOS Devices

In the attached video, I will  show you how easy it is to setup a WebDAV server connection to your CentreStack folders and files.

CentreStack provides WebDAV Server Support primarily for Mobile Devices. This allows mobile applications like GoodReader on iOS devices to access and update files on the CentreStack cloud drive directly and ensures that the file changes will remain synchronized.

This is especially important with iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad, where applications do not directly communicate with other applications.

CentreStack has integrated WebDAV support to solve this. It does require you to have a valid SSL Certificate on the CentreStack server to take advantage of this feature. We are using GoodReader in this example of how to set it up.

As you can see, setting up a WebDAV connection with an application like GoodReader on your iOS device is very straightforward.

Bring Your File Server Experience to the Cloud :)

There are a lot of solutions for cloud-based file management on the Internet, so I think you should be aware of just how good CentreStack is for migrating your users and files to the cloud.

In this video I will show you how easy it is to use CentreStack’s Web Portal. I will also demonstrate how your users can easily install the Client software. I will show you the mapped Windows Cloud Drive. And finally, I will demonstrate some reliability and security features.
So, let’s get started. (script continues below...)

Typically, the CentreStack Administrator will create a Tenant which is like a company or division within your Management Console. This Tenant will have one or more Tenant administrator users assigned and other non-administrator users which have access to shared team folders. These folders have the same permissions and security settings you’re used to seeing in the Windows Active Directory.
I’m logging in as a standard user. As you can see the CentreStack Web Portal is like a …

Outlook Add-In for CentreStack

Recent updates have brought us many enhancements to CentreStack, including better access to file sharing for our Microsoft Outlook users.

As a Cluster Manager you can enable the Outlook Add-In, which is located in the Default Group Policy > Client Control > Native Client area of your management console.

This video shows you how to make use of this excellent addition to your Windows Client Workflow.

I cover three use-cases: AddFiles, AddFolder and RequestFile.

As you can see the Outlook Addin creates an easy and useful way for you to take advantage of CentreStack’s features from within an email. It handles all the difficult tasks of creating a shared space for you to interact with others using email to give them access to files and folders in your server.
