  • To confirm that a file transfer has been completed, configure a Serv-U event to receive notifications about successful file transfers. For information about configuring events, see Domain events.
  • Use $ macros for events and in system messages (such as login messages or customized FTP responses) and % macros for configuration values. For more information about macros, see System variables and Directory access rules.
  • To automatically add new users to a group, use a user template in which a default group is specified. For information about setting up user templates, see User accounts.
  • Organize user accounts into collections to make account management more logical and organized. For information about creating user collections, see User accounts.
  • To limit user access to client views, modify the system settings that control client view accessibility. For more information about configuring limits and settings, see Server limits and settings.
  • To send emails to multiple recipients and to groups when an event (such as a file transfer) occurs, configure email actions. For more information, see Domain events.
  • To back up your Serv-U configuration, save the following files and folders:
    • serv-u.archive file
    • Users folder
    • serv-uid.txt file
  • To identify the user's home directory, use the %DOMAIN_HOME% macro. For example, to place a user's home directory into a common location, use %DOMAIN_HOME%\%USER%. For more information, see User information.
  • Encryption options specified at the server level are automatically inherited by all domains. Any encryption option specified at the domain level automatically overrides the corresponding server-level option. For more information about setting encryption levels, see Configure server encryption.
  • To control access to virtual paths, configure virtual paths for individual users or groups. For more information, see Virtual paths.
  • To override default system limits when configuring the file server, create a new limit. The value of the new limit takes precedence over the default value. For more information, see Server limits and settings.
