Digital Signage, Accessing File Share

Information about the digital signage file share.

Digital Signage File Share:

  • The file share used to store content for the Digital Signage Service can be accessed from within the Remote Desktop Session or from a workstation.
  • Each department has access to their own folder.
  • In the Remote Desktop Session the S: \ drive is mapped automatically.

Connecting from your workstation:

  • The method of connecting from a departmental workstation may vary based upon the platform and configuration.
  • The general concept is to map a drive to the resource path \\digisign-fs.cites.illinois.edu\data using your active directory credentials.
  • If you need assistance, it is best to work with your local IT Support first. 

Notes on File Transfers:

  • There are ways to eliminate the need to map to the file share from your local workstation.
  • Some Remote Desktop clients support copy and paste of files from your local machine into the remote desktop environment. This is “my” preferred method.
  • If you are a user of Box, it should be possible to place your files on box and then access them from within the remote desktop session- saving them into your folder on the S:\ drive.
