Re: SMB parameter format

Hi Pauliolio,

Thank you for using the Support Forum. The manuals indicate in the Default Repository Document Path field, type the directory path of the folder starting at the root of the shared folder. For example, if you have a folder named scans in the shared folder, type \scans.  If you need additional information Please consider contacting your support centre for further assistance.

SMB parameter format

Product Name: Other - specify product in post


When setting up a Template to scan to a folder using SMB you are asked for server, port, share, folder, username, and password.
Port, and password - Obvious.

Now then, say the full UNC path to the folder to be scanned to is: \\myserver\sharename\folder1\folder2

Should the 'Server' box (if using host Name) be '\\server' or '//server' or 'server'?

Should the 'Share' box be filled with '\sharename' or '/sharename' or 'sharename'?
Should the 'Folder' box be filled with '\folder1\folder2' or '/folder1/folder2' or 'folder1\folder2' or 'folder1/folder2'?

(I'm particularly confused here because the Templates that are already set up have '\sharename' and '.' for the folder, but if I edit the default Template under Workflow Scanning->Default Template the Document Path: is showing as 'folder1\folder2/' )

Should the Username box in the Template be domain\username or username (or even domain/username for some reason)?



Many thanks
