Windows Network Paths

Home Prev Top Next

When you create jobs, you will need to refer to file paths on the machine where FlowForce Server runs or to file paths on the network. When you refer to a Windows network path (e.g., a mapped network drive), use the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) syntax. This is necessary because drive letters are not global to the system, and each logon session is assigned its own drive letters.


The UNC has the following syntax: \\server\sharedfolder\filepath, where server references the server name in the network (defined by the DNS); sharedfolder references a label defined by the administrator (e.g., admin\$ is generally the root directory of the operating system installation); filepath refers to the subdirectories below the share.
