Problems with UNC paths in Watchlist

Post by speedandy » Mon Apr 28, 2014 11:54 am

When trying to add the folder \\REIDS-AIRPORT-E\airport\Videos\Children as a watch Folder I get the error

The Folder you entered does not exist

Please Specify a valid folder

What am I doing wrong?

The most likely issue is permissions. Are you running in desktop more or service mode? If the latter, then when you are adding a Watch Folder, you will only be able to add local or remote paths that the user running the iHomeServer service account. This service account will need to have sufficient permissions on the remote server's folder share.
