Installation

Windows

First, you need to download the latest release of ExpanDrive Server Edition. It is supplied as a 64-bit MSI that runs on Windows 2012, 2016 and 2019. It also runs well on Citrix servers as well as terminal server environments, although you might want to consider using the regular edition of ExpanDrive in these scenarios, as it is designed to provide strong isolation between multiple users as well as multiple instances running in different sesions.

Linux

Debian and Ubuntu based distributions

For Debian and Ubuntu based distributions the easiest way to get started is to download and install the latest .deb package (64 bit), either through the graphical installer or via the command-line with the following command. Note that the package for server edition name is exfs

sudo apt install ./exfs_7.5.2_amd64.deb

Installing the .deb will also automatically install the apt repository and code signing key to enable easy update using the system package manager.‌

You can install the repository and key manually with the following script

curl https://packages.expandrive.com/keys/expandrive.asc | gpg --dearmor > packages.expandrive.gpg
sudo install -o root -g root -m 644 packages.expandrive.gpg /usr/share/keyrings/
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/packages.expandrive.gpg] https://packages.expandrive.com/expandrive stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/expandrive.list'

Then you update the package cache and install ExpanDrive using:

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install exfs

RHEL, Fedora, and CentOS based distributions

Download our latest .rpm package (64-bit) and use yum to install ExpanDrive and the required dependencies. Note that the package for server edition name is exfs

sudo yum localinstall ./exfs-7.5.2-0.x86_64.rpm

Installing the .rpm will also automatically configure the yum repository and code signing key to enable easy update using the system package manager.‌

You can install the yum repo manually using the following script:

sudo rpm --import https://packages.expandrive.com/keys/expandrive.asc
sudo sh -c 'echo -e "[expandrive]\nname=expandrive\nbaseurl=https://packages.expandrive.com/rpm\nenabled=1\ngpgcheck=1\ngpgkey=https://packages.expandrive.com/keys/expandrive.asc" > /etc/yum.repos.d/expandrive.repo'

Then update your package cache and install ExpanDrive using dnf (Fedora 22 and above):

sudo dnf check-updatesudo dnf install exfs

or using yum

yum check-updatesudo yum install exfs
