If you'd like to have a user or application flow configured as a specific mount-point which survives system reboots and starts automatically, you can setup LucidLink client to run as a Windows service.
You can start/stop your service through Windows Service Manager and have it depend on additional services and applications.
Please consult the following steps from our command line interface with lucid help service .
usage: Lucid service [--status] Lucid service --install Lucid service --uninstall Lucid service --start Lucid service --stop Manage the Lucid service - requires Windows Administrator privileges (run commands from Administrator console) Once lucid is running, use lucid link command to link to a file space. When running as a service,options to lucid link will be securely persisted in the OS. If the service is restarted any previously persisted link options are automatically reused. Options: [--status] Display information about the current state of the Lucid service --install Install Lucid as a service --uninstall Uninstall Lucid as a service --start Start Lucid service. --stop Stop Lucid service
Example usage will be that you open a command prompt with Run as Administrator to install and start the service:
lucid service --install Lucid has been successfully registered as a service. lucid service --start Starting Lucid... Lucid started.
Now that the service is installed and started, the service/daemon is awaiting link instructions. Once the link command is provided the settings will persist and resume automatically when restarted at reboot.
lucid link --fs <filespace.domain> --user <user> --password <password> --mount-point <mount-point>
lucid link --fs <filespace.domain> --user <user> --password "$ecure&SafePassword" --mount-point <mount-point>
In cases where an inconsistent file index is detected (because of corrupted cache or a long period where LucidLink was not used on a particular machine) you might need to reset it. You can set the --reset-local-fs flag to the link command to automatically apply this.
Please note automatic linking to a Filespace is not guaranteed if Internet connection is not available
