Windows, File Adapter, UNC path

Hi <experts>

Does somebody have experience with UNC paths in a file adapter?

According to SAP note 821267 Q38 it should be no problem in a Windows environment.

I'm in a pure Windows environment, and want my receiver file adapter to write files to server XXX which has a share called YYY.

I have entered
XXX\YYY in my target directory field but com. channel keeps saying that the directory does not exist.

I have created user SAPService<SID> on server XXX with full rights.

Are there any other prerequisites .... anything I've overlooked ?

Help highly appreciated (with points) 😊

    File Adapter does not support that. You must mount this path locally using Samba ( www.samba.org ) so XI can see that as a local directory.

      Yes, Samba is for Unix environment. In this case you should use "net use" command to mount your Shared Folder to a Local Driver and then use it in File Adapter.

      Like:

      net use x:
      host\folder /PERSISTENT:YES

      Hope it helps

      Hi Hans,

      sorry it is over one year ago. I can't remember the trouble in detail. But it was a lot of trial and error.
