Scan to homeDirectory issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a situation where I can use the full path to scan to homeDirectory, but if I use only the path (homeDirectory) and attribute (sAMAccountName) it fails. I am using an administrator id and I have tried a user owner id. The access is confirmed into the authenticated user folder if I use the fully defined path. The error is "Unable to reach destination". This is a one domain network. LDAP address book works. We added the IP/hostname into the SMTP gateway to get the eMail to work. Is there something like that with the scanning? Cross eyed and looking for other ideas.

  • BTW - This is the sandbox forum to play and test forum functions and features. Due to my assumption (read below) about the question asking about AD device integration, maybe we can get a moderator to move this to the Directory Services (AD) forums. But usually the vendor support docs are better for specific device setups.

    .

    As far as your question, by the term "scan," do you mean a scanner, like a Kyocera office scanner to send scans, faxes, etc, to the home folder of a user? Last time I set this up was only for 5 users with Folder Redirection enabled, and I just manually created the user accounts in the Kyocera and for each user, I specifically set the target to go to a folder on their desktop: \\server\redirectedfolders\username\desktop\scans.

    I consulted the Kyocera docs to set it up. If you are referring to a scanner as I described, and it sounds like you're trying to setup AD sync with the device, then what did the documentation say? My feeling is the AD variable %homeDirectory% and the attribute "sAMAccountName" are not being recognized by the device. There is another variable, %username% but I have a feeling that may not work.

    If my assumptions are incorrect, please provide more details, device vendor, what the docs say, etc.
