Re: External drive connection

Hi Tom,

I already tried that even with just the IP it says Invalid path.

It does ask me for any permission to be granted when I access it from explorer.

Thanks

Re: External drive connection

Are those the qlik services?

So the reason why you can't connect to the external folder is that the user running qlik doesn't have access to it.

Re: External drive connection

Re: External drive connection

I reckon this is out of Qlik context now, but do you have any documentation I can follow to achieve this?

Thanks for your help!
