OS X job submitted from Windows machine
« on: August 19, 2007, 09:43:31 PM »
Is it possible to submit a job targeted at OS X workers from Qube GUI running on a Win2k workstation since directory paths are not the same?

Browsing from Win2k: \\file_server\share_name\prod-X\shots\....
But for OS X workers: /private/var/automount/Volumes/prod-X/shots/....

It might sound like a dummy question but since we have limited resources in terms of workstations, OSX jobs troubleshooting and resubmission may occur on Windows machines.

Assuming you are using UNC on the windows side, then you could use a trick to mount the file server on the OSX host to look like the UNC path.

Opening a command window, and running:

sudo mkdir /file-server
sudo ln -s /private/var/automount/Volumes /file-server/share_name

Will get you what you are looking for.
