com.linoma.dpa.ExecutionException: [8048 - Zip] Unsupported file type for file 'resource:smb://Local Network Share/backup/04182017/Example File (Crystal).rpt'. Expected type is 'LocalFile'. Full stack trace written to '1000001771478_error_2.log'
Is it the parenthesis that is throwing it off? I do not have control over the filenames so if anyone knows of a workaround please let me know. Here is my zip step. The variables resolve to proper paths which I know because it will iterate through the files until it reaches the one throwing the error above.
The parenthesis would not be the problem as those are acceptable in naming conventions. The error message is stating the file set location is a network share resource location using smb:resource. You can zip files in a network share location as well as local files, but you must use UNC path to the network share for it to work properly (\\network share\folder), assuming you are accessing a Windows share.
Let me know if that helps.
