I have created the source and target folder but in the Channel monitor I get error, System does not recognize C drive or any other drive.

A related answer here says that if I can Run windows + R to the file then the directory is accessible. I can, still getting errors.

Please help.

I only have access to a trial version and I have been stuck for 2 days

Hi Olubunmi!

In order to give PI access to file located on your local drive, you should mount your local folder as network share to PI's file system.

Thanks for your response.

Please can you elaborate on this fix. I have mounted the local folder such that I can view the files from my browser. Then copied the link to the source directory. From explorer, I have used the same network link and it redirects to the directory I want.

However, I am still getting the same error.

Can you share some sort of guide or link to any resource.

Thanks.

Morgan,

when you say you can see file from browser it means you are on java stack accessing the files via Java Http config ? if yes then you won't be having a drive name in that ex : C:/test/folder1 instead you should access it as <prefix of the domain>/test/folder

Check below link : https://blogs.sap.com/2013/05/13/getting-access-to-file-system-in-java-only-systems/

Hi Manoj,

Thanks a lot for this info. I am now accessing the files via Java Http config

See screenshot below

However, I am still getting the same error from the communication channel. Source directory existence test fails: Directory...<prefix of the domain>/test/folder..does not exist (though it exists)

Any new ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Morgon,

  • In channel have you mentioned like /administrator/source/ this should work

Yes I have. This should work from all I have gathered so far.

Pity I can't attach a screenshot right now.

I am restarting just to be sure. Thanks again.
