DMS:Original file path overriding configuration ?



Running 4.6c. We use vault method for originals. We have configured data carrier type "Server,frontend" -> PC and are maintaining a path as c:\ for the temporary files. We also have configured 'frontend computers' by putting in the entry as 'Default' data carrier.

Example: Using CV01N, one person Bob, creates a DIR - 100, checks in the original into the vault and saves the DIR. When another person Frank, using CV02N opens DIR - 100, tries to change the original, there is a pop-up with two fields: 1. Data Carrier (blank with a drop down option) and 2. Original: displays the full path of the first person's PC as C:\Document and Settings\Bob\SapWorkDir\<temp. file name>.

Issue-we get a 'ftp:subcommand local error' for Frank when trying to access the original. We also observed that sometime, it would actually create the path C:\Document and Settings\Bob\SapWorkDir\<temp. file name> for Frank on Frank's PC!!

Is the original overriding the configuration? Should it not create the temporary file in C:\ as we have configured in DC20?

Any help would be appreciated.
