  • Upload to a mapped netword drive/folder

    Hi guys,
    I want to create a document up-loader application and use a mapped network drive/folder on the server to store the files, but encountered error like attached screen capture.
    I have set the Documents Path on application's Settings to use the mapped drive.
    Is there any prerequisite that's missing here.

    Thank you.

    Has the user running apache service, permission over this folder?

        Hi Giu,
        I have set the service's user account to domain administrator, and also the security of mapped drive as attached picture.
        Still got the same error.

          How are you adding the mapped drive to scriptcase? Are you mapping the drive on the server and then using the drive letter, or are you using the sharename in Scriptcase?

          I haven't actually tried this, but i do save uploads to a different harddrive to where the application is. I use the drive letter when setting up in Scriptcase.

          e.g Scriptcase is on C:/ and Uploads are on D:/

          Nevermind, i have also tried to upload to a mapped drive with no luck. No error message for me though.

            Hi Mikelaw,
            I use a drive letter, I don't have any issues uploading files in different server's local drive.
            The idea is to have multiple servers using one files repository.
            Also, uploading failed using neither drive letter nor shared folder name.

              I suggest using a hardlink with the mllink command. This one survives a reboot and can be created anywhere you think you need it. You can even make it point to some remote server without problems. Just be sure to allow the windows service user to have the access to the dir where the link is and the dir where the link points to.

                  This solution does work for us you just have to set the user and rights properly.. That is the trickiest part. We use uniform on a windows server..

                    Thanks RR,
                    I still haven't solve the problem, but at least I know it can be done.
                    I'll try to use Uniform server.
