On Premises Data Gateway - Cannot find file path

Hi All,

 

I am pulling my hair with trying to get an on premisis data gateway setup for saving files from Sharepoint to a local server.

 

I have the connection setup correctly as I am able to navigate through the folder structure in Flow to select the folder I want to save to or get information from. However, when I run the flow it fails because it is not able to find the filepath

When I check the failed flow this it what it shows me:

{
"status": 400,
"message": "The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path '\\\\NAS3\\Test' exists on your file system.\r\nclientRequestId: c6f6b2dd-c4a4-4ce4-80b6-192bd4424dd9",
"source": "filesystem-eus.azconn-eus.p.azurewebsites.net"
}
 
Should the filepath have double backslashes??...
NAS3 is the name of the mounted volume that im wanting it access but also show the same if I try it pointing at the C drive of that machine.
Any pointers would be great - Ive seen alot of other posts but their issues relate to the user authentication which I know mine is fine as I can see the folder structure in Flow
 
Many Thanks

Re: On Premises Data Gateway - Cannot find file path

hi, 

There is Two scenario if you want to add path in your local machine than give path in this way

For user name if you are a user of any domain add user name with domain\Username

Secondly if your want to make gateway in network folder follow this step.

Starts with double slashes like \\rootfolder\folder\file . 

If you find this helpful, Please mark it as solution.

Thanks,

Re: On Premises Data Gateway - Cannot find file path

Hi @Harry_G and thanks for the quick response.

 

The connection type is domain based as its a machine at the office.

This part of the process I already having working etc as im able to navigate the folder structure inside by root folder on MS Flow:

So I know theres nothing wrong with the connection as I can see the folders etc and when ive tried other methods with the connection that doesnt work it wont let me navigate

 

The issue is when I try to run it:

The error is:

{
"status": 400,
"message": "The requested action could not be completed. Check your request parameters to make sure the path 'C:\\Users\\administrator/test.doc' exists on your file system.\r\nclientRequestId: df8103fb-bf28-4e64-b5f2-f405b49ab3b9",
"source": "filesystem-eus.azconn-eus.p.azurewebsites.net"
}
 
Many Thanks

hi @AnthonyJackson,

Please check test.doc is already exist in that folder and not? This is occured when file is opened already because data is not write in file when file is opened. If file is not opened please try this formula Base64('content') or see below pic.

If this solve your problem , Please Accept it as a solution.
