File Export with Function Block Diagram to Network Location

I am trying to create a simple CSV file with a function block diagram to be created every 5 minutes and written to a network drive.  Everything works fine when the program writes the file to the local C drive but when I point it to the network drive, it does not write the file there and I don't see any errors or indications of why it is not writing it.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?  I can copy and paste files from windows file explorer to this same location so I think permissions are set to allow writing but for some reason it will not write the file to this network location.  Let me know if additional details or information would help you to understand the problem better.

Re: File Export with Function Block Diagram to Network Location

You've not specified which product you are using, but I'm guessing its Geo SCADA Export (formally ClearSCADA).

Geo SCADA Expert has its own forum (this forum is for SCADAPack devices):



The Geo SCADA Expert server is running as a Windows service under the built-in SYSTEM user account. This user account doesn't have access to any network resources, so you can't access network drives from a Windows service.
