The online docs recommend using a network folder that all CM instances must have write access to, in an outscaled scenario.

The path to which is added to the temporaryFolder attribute of the binaryContentStorage element in Tridion.ContentManager.config.

Is this still needed if you're utilising stick sessions (again, as the online docs suggest you should for load-balanced CMEs)?


1 Answer 1


Both settings are required. The reason is that the sticky sessions are enabled per WCF client. In order to create a multimedia component (or TBB), two WCF clients are used: one for uploading a binary and another one for creating an item in TCM. These two clients may "stick" to different CM instances; hence you need to ensure the path to uploaded binary will be accessible from any instance.
