    RunAllExports returned false

    Jim Weeks

      Still in learning mode on MDP 9.0.....when I want to distribute files to another server, the distribution fails saying "Exporter Method RunAllExports returned false".  The process distributes correctly when it is directed to the local drive.  Any ideas would be helpful, please.

       

      Thanks.

          You need to use UNC file paths instead of mapped drive letters for your export locations.

              Thank you, Joey.

               

              I haven't gotten there yet but will I have to do the same for all other file loactions out side the local drive, for example models, perquisites, etc?

                  [SIZE=3]Yes.  When Data Pump runs, it has no access to mapped network drives.  Sometimes it can be tricky to track down a culprit that isn't using UNC paths (for example a linked table in an Access database or VBA code).  Sometimes I log in as myself to the server and unmap all drives.  Then I run the process manually.  This usually lets me know where I have a mapped network drive.[/SIZE][/FONT]
