How do I send a file to a network drive using PI?

Hello, PI experts:

We are having a vendor place QVD files on a Box account. PI is to pick up these files (we have the username and password for the ftp.box.com address) and send them to a network drive for Qlikview consumption. However, I am having trouble configuring this second channel that will send these QVD files to the network drive.

What adapter, transport protocol, and message protocol are to be used here? Is it even possible to do this using SAP PI?

Kind regards,

Elna Hantalasevic

    • Hi, Anurag,

      Thank you for your input! So, what I'm getting from some research online is you need to mount the network shared directory to the PI server. However, these talk about transaction code AL11. These all seem to be SAP directories, though. I need PI to place the files in a folder on a network drive. Do you know how this would be possible?

      Kind regards,
