Network paths (Switch on Windows)

Post by LasseThid » Thu Feb 28, 2019 3:58 pm

If you want to point to a folder on a different server than the Switchserver do you have to use Inline value and enter the path as //ip-adress/share/folder? I mapped all servers as network drives and chose X:/folder, but Switch doesn't seem to like that... :lol:

It is best to use unc path, if possible.

Lasse,

please make sure that the service user switch might run under has permissions to this UNC path as well (common mistake).
Never use mapped network drives.
