Not able to access files from shared path

Hi All,

I have all the files in a shared path \\corp..\dfs\Enterprise-Reporting\PS_Metrics\ 

When I am creating a new connection & giving the path in the folder connection then no files are showing under that path.

Hello,

If i were you i'd check the folder permissions first. right click>properties>share >advanced> share with all. Thanks to @Michael_Tarallo in https://community.qlik.com/t5/New-to-Qlik-Sense/Creating-folder-connections-in-Qlik-Sense-Server/td-...

I already have permission (modify)of that folder. Otherwise I would get invalid path error.

Any other type of permission you are taking about.

Hi,

I am also facing same issue on our qlik sense server.

I can access the shared folder from file explorer but not from Qlik sense while creating folder connection.

Also, I can access shared folders from other vms which are also getting synced up by onedrive.

May be any policy on my current server which is not allowing me to connect with network shared folder on same server.

I am using service account to which all access are available.

I can access other shared folders which are not getting synced up by OneDrive. But the folder which I want to access from Qlik is getting synced up by OneDrive and not accessible.

 

Appreciate if have any solution.
