When you create a new Storage Location, you must enter the following information.

See Creating DLO Storage Locations.

Table: New Storage Location options



Computer name

Indicates the name of the computer on which you want to create the Storage Location.


Indicates the location on the computer where you want to create the Storage Location.

Storage Locations should be in the same domain as the media server or in a domain that trusts the media server’s domain.

Storage Location name

Indicates the name for the new Storage Location. The name cannot contain any of the following characters: \”@#$%^&*()=+|/{}[]‘


Lists the location and format of network user data folders that will be created for new users who are assigned to this Storage Location. Network user data folders are automatically created in the Storage Location.

DLO uses the %USERDOMAIN% and %USERNAME% variables to determine the actual folder path for each user who is assigned to a Storage Location. DLO uses the user’s domain and user name to create a unique network user data folder name for that user. If the user is logged on with credentials that do not allow access to the Storage Location, the user is prompted to enter alternate domain credentials.

The network administrator can access this folder, but cannot configure the variables.
