Right now we have our PI server installed on a windows machine. The files are available in a different windows machine but in the same network. So far we were using FTP to write or read files. Now recently we run into lot of problems in the FTP server. So we have decided to access the files via NFS. I just want to know what has to be done to access the files from a different machine in the same n/w via NFS.
I saw some threads related to this, but most of it talks abt NFS b/w unix and windows. Will the SAMBA s/w mentioned in one of the thread can be used for windows to windows also??. The simple MAP network drive is not helping a lot. I get the following error in the CC monitor.
Configured source directory 'H:\abcd\inbound does not exist;.
Of course, first change the protocol from FTP to NFS.
Then, if you can see the 'H:\abcd\inbound' directory in your windows explorer on the PI server, you should be able to access it via PI as well. You can also access any server in your network by entering '
servername\directory' in the directory field.
> Configured source directory 'H:\abcd\inbound does not exist;.
As for my knowledge by using NFS it can access the file from the same (where the PI server installed) system only. If you want to access the different systems in the same network then that folders (ex: 'H:\abcd\inbound ) need to share to the PI server. Network people do this things once it is shared then it can access that folder.
