Using FILE to interact with the CI from an App server


Hi All.

We have a custom code function where a user takes a text file and uploads it into the SAP system. The file is immediately processed and a new 'outbound' file is created. Currently, we have the dirctory structure set-up on out CI/DB server. Our users access the system from one of 2 application servers.

The issue we have is that due to the definition in FILE, when the users execute the report, it errors out. This is becasue when they execute, SAP looks to the local server - the app servers - for the directory. As stated, this directory lives on the CI. Does anyone know how to adjust the functionality of FILE so that I can point the program to execute on the CI and not the app server? Thanks!
