Setting the File Adapter Sender Source Directory...

Good morning, Experts

We have 2 sender file adapter communication channels in XI 7.0. Source directories for each are as follows:

Channel A - //757spgmr16-xp.sauder.com/SAP

Channel B - //devqas.sauder.com/ROOTBIN

Channel A works. Channel B does not. It returns "Configured source directory '//devqas.sauder.com/ROOTBIN' does not exist". When I remote into the XI box as the administrator I can open a Windows Explorer window and can see both of these source folders.

What user ID is used to access the NFS for the communication channel???

Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Chad

      Hey

      you have your SAP XI user ID,right?now you login to SAP XI system via this ID and its this ID via which communication channel is created(in case of NFS) and this ID must be able to access the files on the server.check your roles in SU01 and make sure your user ID has correct authorizations

    Chad,

    "What user ID is used to access the NFS for the communication channel??"

    Communication channel uses XIAFUSER to that folder.so,XIAFUSER has to have permission like R W E.

    • it the user when try to access the file from(or to) your folder.so,your folder has to have all permission to AFUSER.

      but in general all XI users are assigned to some user(letsay SAPUSER) in the network level and give all permissions to that user (SAPUSER) to have access to the folder.

    Is the integration engine running in a service on the XI server??? There are a number of SAP labelled services. Some are started with the log on of "Local system", some with the administrator account and then some with an ID of "SAPServicePID".

    My guess here is that possibly this SAPServicePID user is running the integration engine and does not have permissions to the source directory??? Could this be the case???

    Can somebody tell me the name of the service for the integration???
