What are the Eclipse samba shares used for?

The Eclipse application uses the following samba shares to transfer files between Windows servers:

  • msg-out: this share is used to provide print jobs to the Eclipse Forms server
  • msg-in: this optional share can be used to deliver files to Eclipse from external data sources
  • CONV.DATA: this optional share is used by the data conversion tools when migrating data between ERP solutions
  • exports: this optional share is used by the “Windows Direct” companion product to allow users the ability to download access their reports from a mapped network drive

    1. John,

      The “Windows Direct” companion product functions identically on both AIX and RHEL. From the OS side, all we do is create the /u2/exports share. The remaining configuration steps, including auth keys and folder creation, are performed via the Eclipse application. If you need further information, please create a service request and send it over to our applications team — they’ll be glad to walk you through the steps!
