ESB 7.6 FilePickup: cannot access dir on the network

  • Hi all,

    we have set up an ESB Process with a FilePickup service. As long as the pickupDirectory is on a local drive everything works fine. But if we set it to a dir on a network drive, as soon as we sent a message to the process to pickup the file, we get the following error:

    File Pickup Error: requested directory does not exist

    OS is Windows and we are starting the ESB as a service. We therefore created a user ESBService which has read/write access to the dir. The ESB service is started using this server, but the FilePickup service cannot access the direcory.

    Any help greatly appreciated...

  • Hello Mike

    Did you map the disk on local file system or did you try to access the disk using \\myhost\sharedfolder\ ?

  • We mapped the drive. I now changed our Code to use UNC instead, and: it works!
