Hi All,

We want to integrate sharefile with XenMobile and we are using Netscaler gateway as a loadbalancer for XenMobile server.
I want to know how many IP address we need for ShareFile interms of Private/Public
We will install SZC in internal network, were as XMS and Netscaler will be in DMZ

Please let me know if anyone knows the answer.
Thanks in advance.

Regards,
SV

Hi Sekhar,

Assuming you already have XenMobile and NetScaler configured, you will just need a publicly-resolvable Internet hostname (not an IP address) as outlined in the system requirements of the StorageZone Controller documentation. More information on this can be found here: https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/storagezones-controller/5-0/system-requirements.html

Best regards,

Hello Kevin,

Thank you very much for the info.
I dont have much knowledge in sharefile, sorry if ask a very basic question.

We have a 1 StorageZone Controller installed in our internal network.
So we need a Internal IP address for it for sure.

And do we need ShareFile load balancer even though we have 1 server?
 - If we dont require sharefile Load balancer, how does the traffic from the devices will go to the        storagezone controller?
- And if we require ShareFile load balancer then we have to use publicly-resolvable Internet hostname in the load balancer?

Thanks.

Hi Sekhar,

You can set up a DNS entry for the StorageZone Controller and point it at your firewall, or whatever you have in place. Then you can configure a NAT in the firewall to your NetScaler content switch and then load balance to the zones.

For assistance with an initial deployment we do offer consultation services. More information on these services can be found here: https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX209122

Best regards,

Yes, the external traffic from the sharefile control plane will reach your firewall and firewall should forward traffic to the netscaler content switch IP for sharefile( Please use the wizard in netscaler to configure sharefile configuration)



Netscaler
===============
Content Switch: 1 DMZ IP Address
AAA Virtual Server: 1 DMZ IP Address
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Firewall
==========
Publicly-resolvable Internet hostname (Public IP): Sharefile DNS Entry (example:sharefile.companyname.com)

Does "Content switch"  mean the sharefile load balancer in the netscaler? 

Thanks

Yes content switch sever will be created with the netcaler wizard for sharefile just you need to provide the informations and the ip addresses..
