Action "edit text file" with network file

Does anyone know how to use this action to edit a text file located on the client workstations network drive?

for example drive M: is assigned to \\server\data\username

I defined: Configure a file on the managed device
File name * \\server\data\username\file.txt
or
File name * M:\file.txt

both leads to
unexpected exception processing action edit text file
the indicated path format is not being supported

Sauerwein,

the default option is to run the action as the system - did you change
it to run as the user?

Sauerwein,

If you are providing the path as "M:\file.txt", then you should configure the action to be run as "User".
If you still see the problem, could you please post the error message here, as you are seeing it on your box?

Re: Action "edit text file" with network file

Thank you!
I found the problem.
It seems to be critical which "Action Name" I assign to the Edit Action.

I used "P:\Organizer\lotus\organize\install.rsp" and that was the problem.
Now I use P_Organizer_lotus_organize_install.rsp
and it works without problems.

Kind regards

Sauerwein,

I can confirm this, and I think it's a bug -
can you get me customer details please?

can you send this to spond at novell dot com
I know you have a way forward, but I don't think that ZCC should allow
you to enter invalid characters...
