What type of file system is your NetApp storage using? WAFL?
The usual suspect:
Important! If the directory resides on a network drive be sure to use the UNC naming convention; DO NOT SPECIFY A MAPPED DRIVE.
In order for this to work, appropriate permissions need to be set on the remote directory. Both the Shavlik Protect console user and the console machine need to be granted access to the download directory. The console user should have read/write permission to the share and the console machine needs read access. When specifying share permissions for a machine, you must append a ”$” to the end of the machine name.
In some configurations additional users may need to be granted access to the download directory. If you specify machine or machine group credentials for machines that download patches from a distribution server, the specified user accounts will require read access to the download directory share.
Making the download directory share readable by everyone may or may not be an effective strategy. It depends on:
- Whether the credential users and the download directory host belong to the same (or trusted) domain(s)
- The specifics of the local security policy
Glad it's working Brett. Let use know if you need anything else.
