To use App Volumes with VHD In-Guest Operation mode, the App Volumes Manager, and Agent computers require the special permissions on the CIFS file share to perform certain tasks on VHDs during the normal operation of App Volumes.
About this task
- On a file server, create a new empty folder.
- Copy the contents of the Hypervisor\In-Guest VHD folder from the App Volumes Installation media to the new folder.
- Share the folder and grant full access permissions on the file share to everyone.
- Configure NTFS permissions as described below.
An Active Directory domain group might be used to manage permissions for the following roles:
Managers: App Volume Managers
Agents: Machines that receive App Volumes and writable volumes assignments
Capture Agents: Machines that are used for provisioning new App Volumes

Write or NoneNote:
Write permissions are required by Agents when Dynamic Permissions are not enabled.
