PSOS and Network Drives

Hi All,

 

I am having trouble trying to figure out how to reach a network drive (windows domain) from PSOS using the BaseElements plugin.

 

I am using the FileExists function from BE and on my local machine which has the network drive mapped it returns true as expected. On the PSOS side it returns 0 when using the same path. The database server has the network drive mapped to the same drive letter and everything as my local machine so I'm thinking maybe the PSOS runs differently and isn't using a windows login?

 

Anyone have experience with this because the documentation doesn't mention anything about network drives.

 

The ways I've tried setting the path has varied and all have worked on my local machine. For example:

  • Set variable [$path; Value: "T:/folder name here"
  • Set variable [$path; Value: "\\\T:\folder name here"
  • Set variable [$path; Value: "\\\fileserver1\folder name here"
  • set variable [$path; Value: "\\fileserver1\folder name here"

 

Hope that makes sense.
