After you configure VMware Identity Manager access to your ThinApp packages, your IT environment might change such that your ThinApp packages are in a new location. When this situation occurs, in the administration console, update the path to the new location.


Verify that the new network share location adheres to the network share requirements as described in VMware Identity Manager Requirements for ThinApp Packages and the Network Share Repository.


  1. Log in to the administration console.
  2. Select the Catalog tab.
  3. Click Manage Desktop Applications and select ThinApp Applications.
  4. Change the value in the Path text box to the new shared folder where the ThinApp packages are located in the UNC path format.
  5. (Optional) If the previous network share was a CIFS share and the new share is a DFS share, select the Enable account based access check box and enter the name and password of a user who has read access to that network share.
  6. Click Save.
