Hallo community,

this is my first post and hopefully you can help me in this issue:
Our keyusers gained access on PDF files via our Windows fileserver. On our old system AS400 we used the keyword 'QNTC' in our path to provide them the PDF's.

On our transition to S/4HANA we use SLES, and I really dont know, how I can provide the files to our fileserver in Windows.

In AS400 we had to set up the Mapping first like MKDIR DIR('/(QNTC/<Name of FilesServer>/')

Now I need the same thing in SLES. If u need more detail information dont worry to ask. Sorry for my bad english. Thank you!

The Lord greets.

additional info:
the scenario is to export the files directly into the fileserver on Windows. This could be the answer: https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001636.htm but the scenario is a little bit different. I dont want a copy of the file on our Linux Servers. It should be go directly into the fileserver on Windows.

That link shows how to make files stored on a Windows server accessible
to Linux but from what you describe you want to make files stored on a
Linux server accessible to Windows. The process is essentially the same.

- Setup Samba on your SLES server.
- Share the directory SLES server containing your files.
- On your Windows server, map a drive to the shared folder on SLES.

The process is a bit more involved: You probably want to restrict
access to the shared folder so the Windows server will likely have to
authenticate and you may want to adjust the SLES firewall to restrict
access only to the Windows server.

Hello KBOYLE,

thanks for your response.

But the scenario is little more different: we administrate SAP on SLES and the File should go directly on the windows Fileserver- that means, there are no PDF's on our Linux Server. Is it still the same way u described in ur last post?
Thank you very much.
