Questions about picking a file from file system

29 Views

Hi experts,

excuse me if it is a basic question, but I'm confused about accessing file system with XI.

My need is to pick up a PDF file from file system ,the file to be picked is in file system ECC.

I have created a sender channel with transport protocol File System (NFS).

With transaction AL11 I'm able to see file system (SAP directories).

In column: "Name of Directory Parameter" I see the name of the directory which contains the file to be picked: DIR_GE

In column: "Directory" I see:
dm10sa21\sapmnt\GE where dm10sa21 is the name of the ECC server.

My questions are:

1) XI has access to file system XI or to file system ECC? (The XI server is dm10sa09, so a different server)

2) In file system some directories are defined with a disk name and a path (Example D:\usr\sap\...), some others with a server name (example:
dm10sa21\sapmnt\GE). My case is the second. Is possible to access in the second case?

3) If it's possible, what is the correct parameter to write in sender channel (like source directory...)

Thanks,

Fabio
