Configure file shares and permissions

The ThinApp packages must reside on a network share  ThinApp package repository. The network share must be accessible using a Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) path from each system running the VMware Identity Manager Desktop application used to access the ThinApp packages. For example, a share named ThinAppRepo on a host named server is accessible using the UNC path \\server\appshare. The fully qualified hostname of the network share folder must be resolvable from VMware Identity Manager.
