Hi folks, having an issue that someone can hopefully help me out with:
I can register SDE geodatabases just fine, the problem I have is with registering folders. I have a network storage device; it has its own IP and is a share that is accessible by the server and client machines (let's say 192.168.10.21/geodata). Clients can access this share via the UNC or by mapping the drive to their own computer (we'll say the Q:\ drive).
I created one registration via the UNC address and it works fine (doesn't warn that data will be copied to the server), but I get a medium warning that data is being referenced by UNC (don't know if this is bad?).
I've also created a second registration with the following settings:
Publishers Path: Q:\
Publisher Folder Hostname: 192.168.10.21
Server Folder Path (unchecked): \\192.168.10.21\geodata
It creates the registration and validates just fine, but when I analyze to publish, I still get a warning that my data is not registered and that it will be copied to the server. Any ideas? This is server 10.3.1, but I had the same issues in 10.2.2.
