Hi,

I have some files(eg: xml, txt) in a file server, well in the same network
i need to access or read those files from my system, how can we achieve this.
previously i was having those files from my same machine, now this should be
achieved from a different machine.

For the local machine: Directories were created for specific drive and grants were also given;

D:\Project1\

so the above this is not a problem when accessing within a local machine,
how to get or create a directory into a file_server/backup_server, and
access those files from a local machine? how to set these things?

Pls give some ideas!

Stanlee.

NET SHARE on the server.

NET USE on the client.

You'll have to create a directory (Oracle object) which will point to file system directory which contains those files. If they were on a database server - no problem. As they are on a file server (which is, I presume, different from your database server) - no problem either. You'll just have to use UNC notation.

On the server:
SQL> CREATE DIRECTORY project1 
       AS 'D:\PROJECT1';

C:\> NET SHARE PROJECT1=D:\PROJECT1

On the client:
NET USE <drive_letter> \\<DB_Server_name>\PROJECT1

Just search for UNC, no need to be a network expert.
But you have to know that Oracle account has no right on network and must NOT have any.
So, anyway, you can't achieve what you want from Oracle database.

Hi Michel,

I have found out in google these below;

UNC Name Examples

Consider a standard Windows XP computer named teela . In addition to the built-in admin$ share, say you have also defined a share point called temp that is located at C:\temp. Using UNC names, you would connect to folders on teela as follows:
\\teela\admin$ (to reach C:\WINNT)
\\teela\admin$\system32 (to reach C:\WINNT\system32)
\\teela\temp (to reach C:\temp)

well i will try it out and say, mean while i will try gazzag's idea;

Thanks...

And you will fail due to the reasons I mentioned.

Actually, I'm wondering where oracle comes into the picture at all ...
