Once a File Storage drive has been configured and is available to the worker roles, the region can be configured to use it,
in a similar way to an on-premises deployment.
Note: You must use the Classic type of Azure Storage with Enterprise Server for .NET.
For example, to use the drive to store application DLLs, maps, etc, and configure the region to load them, do the following:
- Deploy the region startup file, and, if you are configuring a CICS region, the resource definition file into SQL Azure. An
example of how to do this can be found in the seedbdeploy.cmd script used in the ACCT sample deployment example.
- Once the region startup file is deployed, define the region as described in the Defining an Azure Region topic.
- Edit the Region Startup configuration, as described in the Configuring Regions and Resources.
- Set the path names to the deployed objects on the Azure drive and save the configuration.
For example, if you configured the File Storage drive to use drive letter M:, you might configure the Application Program Paths node to contain m:\programs.
