Error description

  • If you have a DFS namespace, and map it with Windows Explorer
    and then open Modeler and try and read files in that DFS (for
    example: test environment has a DFS at \\myserver\testdfs, with
    2 folders called, test1 and test2) SPSS Modeler will fail to
    open the files within these subfolders. Viewing these files
    using Windows Explorer poses no problems at all.
    
    On a Windows 2008R2 environment, you can see the Z:\ drive when
    I open Modeler Client. You can see test1 and test2, but not the
    files inside these folders. If I map \\myserver\testdfs\test2 as
    Y:\ , then the files are visible and can be opened by our
    product.
    
    On Windows 7, I cannot see the Z:\ drive. I can type
    \\myserver\testdfs and I can then see test1 and test2, but I
    still cannot read the files inside. If I map
    \\myserver\testdfs\test2 as Y:\ , then these are available to be
    used.
    

Local fix

  • This has been reported to IBM SPSS Modeler development team for
    investigation. This issue will be addressed in a future release
    of IBM SPSS Modeler.
    
    There are two workarounds currently available:
    a) Copy the required files locally; or
    b) Create more mapped drives for the individual subfolders.
