Remote mxf file location not found

#1

Post by atomasze » Sun Oct 13, 2019 10:46 pm

I am testing out server/client for mxf file import. The testing is with version 1.2.18.10 of EPGclient. The server is a Win 8.1 and the client a Win 7. The problem i am having is the client setup fails to update and logs "file does not exist".

Then when i use manual import with same file path it performs as expected. Any pointers in there as to why it works directly with import but not with the scheduler?

Output from Log.

You need to change the user of the task to one that has access to that shared folder. Open the epg123_update task in Task Scheduler, and click the [Change User or Group...] button. Change the user to your account, when you click [OK] of the task window, it will prompt you for your password if needed.

Thanks for the quick reply. I figured since the share was RO for everyone it would be read just fine. I had to make the task run as privileged user and it fixed the error.

Yah, permissions can be tricky. The user assigned to the task needs to have network access, which I don't believe Everyone does.

I"m going to correct myself, here. It may have more to do with the fact the Everyone on computer A is not the same Everyone that is on computer B. However, I found this post which appears to be exactly what we need... I may add this to the guide.

I don't particularly like changing Group Policies, but this looks pretty reasonable. I still need to research for myself.
