When defining the samba shares, No matter how I define the parameters, I always get the parameters wrong error, Could you give a practical example, of how to define this one and use it..

My Director is installed on WIndows, and the Share that I am using is on Unix. (Authentication should be based on the Windows login)

When setting up a Network Share, you can see the syntax of the SMB resource in bold black on the Edit Network Share screen. If you press the "?" next to the Screen name, you will see a full example of how to setup the SMB Network Share.

Name and Host are required items on the Basic Tab. For Example,

Name: Develop_RElliott
Share: Develop

--Name is what I will reference in my Project
--Host is the IP address of the Server I need to communicate with
--Share is the Name of the Share located on the Host, and optionally followed by a sub-folder located on that share

On the Authentication Tab

If the Credentials you sign onto GA Director matches your Windows Login, you could select "YES" for the Use Logged-In User Credentials option.

Otherwise, you will need to supply the Windows Login information.

In this example, the resource would be referenced like:
