Hello everyone,


I want to install an fx StoreNext client version 2.2 on a 2.3 xsan osx 10.7.2


The installation procedure fx client indicates to copy a license.dat file in the MDC in the folder: / Library / Filesystems / Xsan / config /.

After the file is copied, I restart the Xsan software and it creates a "auth_secret" file that I have to place my clients in FX windows.


My problem is that the folder / Library / Filesystems / Xsan / config / does not exist. I can not create the file auth_secret.


how to install my customer FX version?

Xserve, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    The auth_secret file is titled .auth_secret.  You will not be able to see it with the Finder as files starting with a . are invisible.  Use Terminal to find the file:


    cd /Library/Filesystems/Xsan/config

    ls -la


    cp .auth_secret ~/Desktop/secret_visible
