Hello


We are trying to get the Network Processing working between 3 machines. We have used the instructions on the following link:

https://agisoft.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/31000145918-how-to-configure-the-network-processing

The machines connect to the server, however, when we start processing, we keep getting an error:

"The system cannot find the path specified (3)"

What is the correct way to specify the location of the project files on Windows:
Do I use the \\PC-Name\Folder syntax, or should I use the IP address, should I map a network drive and use that?

Can someone please advise what we could be doing wrong?

Thank you!

You may be using forward slashes instead of back slashes in your path.

On Windows, Agisoft have it on their manual as the following:
metashape.exe --node --dispatch 333.333.333.333 --root //Storage/FOLDER/

You need to change it to back slashes instead.

metashape.exe --node --dispatch 333.333.333.333 --root \\Storage\FOLDER\


See if that fixes your issue.

Hello heinrichvr,

UNC paths for Windows are preferred, when defining the root path, as mapped drives may have temporary connection issues.

Make sure that root paths for all nodes and path used on client machine (where from the network processing is started) are pointing to the same shared network directory.
