File sytem Repository - What am I doing wrong?

Hi,

We are on EP6.0 SP2 P03 HF02 / CM6.0 SP2 P03 HF01 / TREX 6.0 SP1 P03 HF01.

I'm trying to setup a file system repository but I'm having problems.

Here are the steps:

- portal server running on portals01.portal.company.com (PORTAL domain)

- shared out the directory "Office" on portals06.portal.company.com (same PORTAL domain) as "officeshare" and gave PORTAL\installuser full access to the share, everybody else has read permission to the share (installuser is a domain admin in the PORTAL domain)

- changed the user to PORTAL\installuser on the SAP J2EE services Dispatcher and Server, restarted servlet engine

- assigned PORTAL\installuser to the "Act as part of the operating system" and "Log on as a service" security policies, restarted server

- checked for the existence of a Windows system, "Microsoft_Windows_KM" was already there

- setup the "KMWindows_System" windows system template in the portal

- created the "KMWindows_System" sytem in the "KMSystems" folder of the Portal Content catalog based on the "KMWindows_System" template and gave the same alias to the system as my Windows system ("Microsoft_Windows_KM")

- setup the network path "officepath" to the shared directory "officeshare" as "
portals06\officeshare"

- setup the File System Repository Manager parameters as follows:

Name: fs_office

Localroot: //portals06/officeshare

Prefix: /officeshare

Windows Landscape System: Microsoft_Windows_KM

Lookup Mode: caseless

Security Manager: W2kSecurityManager

- restarted the portal server, just in case...

I'm not seeing the new repository in the explorer, I can not assign it to an index, etc.

What am I doing wrong here? Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank You!

Gabor

    Hi Gabor,

    did you assign your user to the "KMWindows_System"?

    If not: Personalize -> User mapping => <domain>\<username>

    Hope it works,

    Best Regards

    Helge

    Did you activate the file system mount service? That's the only thing that appears to be missing from your config.

    Hello Gabor,

    Use CM repository and in Persistence Mode setting select fsdb instead of file system repository.

    Hi Gabor,

    Please add the Repository Service "properties" to this FS Repository and try again!

    Hello,

    are you sure it is Windows 2000 and not Windows 2003 Server? For Windows 2003 Server you have to upgrade to SP2 Patch3 HF1 to get W2kSecurityManager to work.

      Hi Reinhard,

      I'm extremely sure we are on W2k servers. :o)

      Also, at the time of the original post we were already at the latest and greatest patch/hotfix levels: EP6.0 SP2 P03 HF02 / CM6.0 SP2 P03 HF01 / TREX 6.0 SP1 P03 HF01.

    Hi Gabor,

    can you check the "Component Monitor" of KM? You might find there an error message about what's wrong with your FS Manager configuration.

    Gabor,

    Have you tried changing your "localroot" to "
    portals06\officeshare" (instead of "//portals06/officeshare").

    I have successfully set a repository up like this (eventually!) on my development box and it would only work with "
    " not "//".

    Good luck!

    Stuart.

    Hi all,

    i did all configuration requested to set up a windows repository in portal.

    Actually i can see from the repository manager monitor, new repository works fine, but my question is where should i see the repository installed?

    Under the km root directory? in an appropiate navigation iview?

    thanks in advance

      Hi,

      The problem should be related to the user mapped. The error message says the user used for the usermapping does not have a domain, that is fgrilli does not have the format domain\user required for windows systems. Be sure that the user contains this info in Portal mapping.(I guess you just forgot to type the domain in portal user mapping)

      Regards,

      Miguel

    Hi!

    Looks like I have a similar problem:

    Have configured anything like Gabor, but the Repository Manager just got a "startup failed".

    The only part which is different to Gabor: I'm using EP6.0 on NW04, anything patched up to SP09 (WAS, EP, TREX, KMC): J2EE is installed as Plug-In into a ABAP-WAS.

    Maybe the FS-Mount-Service is not running? But where can I find the Log-File? \usr\sap\SID\DVEBMGS00\j2ee\cluster\server0\log --> a fs-scan doesn't return anything usefull.

    Thanks

    Rene

      It looks that the FS-Repository only works if it is installed on a J2EE-Only-NW04 system.

      My first test was on the following system:

      ABAP-Stack (Netweaver04 ABAP WAS)

      J2EE-Plug-In

      EP6.0

      This didn't work. After reinstalling the Portal on a J2EE-Only NW04-System, anything worked fine.
