Problem: Geoprocessing Server is unable to read data in a shared directory
The Geoprocessing Server is unable to read data in a shared directory on a client machine.
Data on Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000 machines that is to be used on a Geoprocessing Server must reside on a shared drive using a nondefault drive name.
Solution or Workaround
Share the drive containing the data on the client machine.
- On Microsoft Windows operating systems, default share names such as C$ will not work, nor will share names that contain spaces.
- For Microsoft Windows 2000 Operating Systems users whose drive(s) are NTFS, set directory level permissions on folders requiring restricted access.
