Can I set up a shared drive to contain data files for my controller and agents?
Yes a shared drive can be used to store data files for use by the SilkPerformer controller machine and any agent machines.
- Data files can be made available to agents either by adding them to the data files section of SilkPerformer or by hard coding the entire path in the script of a shared drive which the agent can access.
- The hard coded path in the script cannot be c: or any other physical drive on the agent machine otherwise SilkPerformer will look locally for it. e.g. \\machinename\sharename
- If using a shared drive to store data files it must be available to all agents and you will need to enable UNC access.
