KM Windows Drive


We are trying to create a new file system repository on our Portal (EP 7.0 SPS 12)

server, which isUNIX based and the file system repository is Windows


The reference document we are following is:

We first create a windows file system with the read/write/execute

permission for all. Then we created the file system repository with

property search manager, security manager and ACL manager cache.

We also create a network path under global services -> network paths. However

when we look at the component monitor, we see "Startup Error: getting

mapped math - Failed to connect to server".

Any ideas?

    I think this problem occure while selecting "Security Manager", you have to select

    <b>"Security Manager = AclSecurityManager"</b> instead of <b>"Security Manager = W2KSecurityManager"</b> and try it once.

      The error message we are getting is at the Global Services--> network path, not even at the KM Repository level.

    Hi Deepu,

    weather using WK2Security Manger or using ACL Security Manager is only a question if the portal or windows owned the permission.

    Your mistake is in your configuration of the network path (which belongs to the global services).

    “Use jCIFS” mus be activated. This is the first important option.

    The network path must be accessed and the user and password must be valid.

    You can verify this by accessing the windows drive using the network path and user/pwassword at operation system level. Perhaps you have to adjust your mount point at unix side.

    Best Regards
