File System not connecting



I'm trying to create a flow to save specific email attachments into a network drive, but can't seem to get 'File System' to successfully connect to a file path.


I've set up a 'File System' connection, and put "[domain]\[user]" as my username, along with password and gateway.   I've verified the gateway connects successfully in the on-premises app.  However, every time I try to navigate the folder path in File System, it throws the following error:


"The dynamic invocation request failed with error: { "status": 403, "message": "The credentials for this connection do not have access to '', please try using a different location or account.\r\nclientRequestId: 79ce29a8-84e1-410a-885e-27e6-500f7b78", "error": { "message": "The credentials for this connection do not have access to '', please try using a different location or account." }, "source": "" }"
I've tried all iterations of user and domain (which seems to be a common issue), and tried using a local drive instead of a network drive, but all result in the same error.  Any ideas on how best to debug next?
Really appreciate any help!

Hi @cholland5,


Are you input the correct domain/username?

You could find your computer name via reading this document:

If the domain is "", the domain put in the file system connection should be "Atest".

Hi Lin Tu,

Thank you for the fast response! 


I can confirm I've tried this, also with many other varieties (user name vs machine name, "\" vs. "/", domain with and without ".org") but still get an error.


Are there other checks I can perform to verify compatibility?
