After you have fully prepared for creating a deployment, you are ready to set up and distribute Autodesk products from a shared network location. A network share is an installation folder to which all users' computers have access. You create deployments in the network share, and point users to this location to install the program. Any subfolders inside a network shared folder are automatically shared.
If you select the option to create a network log file, then during installation, the user's computer writes an entry to the log file in the network share. Therefore, this option requires that users have read-write access to the network share.
You can create a deployment folder on a network share as part of the process of creating the deployment. If you plan to create several deployments of the same product or suite, configured for different user groups, then these deployments can share the same administrative image, and the shortcuts can reside in the same folder. However, if you plan to create deployments of different products or suites, it is recommended that you create separate product folders on the network share before starting to create deployments.
