Before you can create add a Windows File Server to EmpowerID as a managed resource system, EmpowerID must first be connected to Active Directory. For the details, see Connecting to Active Directory.
Additionally, for EmpowerID to have the necessary NTFS permissions to create shared folders, you must associate the Windows Server Management Web Service job with a service account that is a domain user with administrator rights on the server hosting the shared folders. The password for that account must be vaulted in EmpowerID. For more details, see Configuring the EmpowerID Windows Server Agent Account.
