This node connects to a remote SMB server (e.g. Samba, or Windows Server). The resulting output port allows downstream nodes to access files , e.g. to read or write, or to perform other file system operations (browse/list files, copy, move, ...). This node generally supports versions 2 and 3 of the SMB protocol. It also supports connecting to a Windows DFS namespace .
Path syntax: Paths for SMB are specified similar to Windows Paths, but with a leading backslash ( \ ). The path is interpreted relative to the chosen Share (or DFS namespace). For example \myfolder\file.csv , is an absolute path that consists of:
- A leading backslash ( \ ).
- The name of a folder ( myfolder ), followed by a backslash.
- Followed by the name of a file ( file.csv ).
