How to access UNC (windows share) paths

Postby kubosj » Wed Jan 23, 2013 9:49 am

UNC paths (http://compnetworking.about.com/od/wind ... c-name.htm) are supported in Readers and Writers components - read the next post/comment below.

For now there is recommended workaround:
* map network share into local file system and then access it in usual way used for local files in Readers and Writers

On windows
* you can use UI or command line approach described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308582
* when CloverETL Server will run as system service, this approach will help http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1827 ... 24#4763324 , also see detail http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1827 ... 47_4763324 for persistent share

On linux and other unixes
* http://linuxcommand.org/man_pages/smbmount8.html
