Not able to use MapNetWorkDrive in HPC Task Command line RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We are using MapNetWorkDrive(W=\\Testmachine\TestFiles) in our Application. while Converting the same to HPC is not working in HPC. Is there any limitation of using MapNetwork Drives in HPC.



    EX:
    Copy C:\a.txt W:\


    ERROR:
    The system cannot find the drive specified.

    We run the above test only in HeadNode and HeadNode Contains this MapNetWorkDrive(W).

    Thanks in Advance

  • Murthy,
    There are a few other threads discussing this I think (if you look around) where you can find some more detail.  But the basic story is that drive mapping is not a really reliable way of accessing data, as mapping don't persist across sessions, have strange reconnect behavior, etc . . .

    As such we strongly recommend using UNC paths instead of drive mapping.  Instead of doing W: just do \\testmachine\testfiles.

    Thanks,
