Problem reloading files from mapped drives

I noticed something strange when i tried to reload a file that loads data from a mapped drive.

If i run the scrip manually, it works just fine. But when i try to create a job in QlikView Server to do the same thing it doesn't work. It acts like the drive isn't mapped.

Is this a bug, or Qvs can't use mapped drives?

I have QlikView Server 9 SR2 64bit on an Windows 2008 SR2 64 bit server.

Problem reloading files from mapped drives

Hi Alecs,

I had the same problem too.
I solved in two ways:
1. \\192.168.0.1\D$\Folder\Document.xls
(Attention at the folder security.) I used this in script.
2. \\192.168.0.1\Folder\Document.xls
(Attention at the folder security.
Attention at map networking drive.) I used this in vbs macro.

Best regards,
Mihai Turturica

Drives are usually mapped on a per user level, most likely the account running the task doesent have that mapping.

I don't think this is it ; the drive is mapped on all the users on the server with the same letter.

Problem reloading files from mapped drives

Hi Alecsandru,

I had the same problem before..it does seem that when it is running in the server it cant locate it if you just input the mapped drive..i solved this by just giving the complete path..on my case in the office its something like this:

\\10.248.2.24\folder1\folder2\folder3\filename.filetype
