File System Repository Manager

The Portal is on HP - AIX

The file share is on Windows XP.

I created a KM Windows system and entered the user mapping from my portal user to the remote Windows XP machine user

I created a File Sytem Repository manager with the following properties:

Root Directory: //<ip address>/Shared folder

Security Manager: W2KSecurityManager

ACL manager cache: ca_rsrc_acl

Windows landscape system: the alias of the previously defined system

Now in the Component Monitor -> Repository Managers, I see the new repository red

But the constituents: Filters, resource event broker and services all green

The mountinfo is missing.

In the logs I get:

getting mapped math - java.lang.NullPointerException
