Subject Problem crawling windows share
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2011 08:11:51 GMT

I have been using windows share repository connection to crawl and get data
from a particular server (server 1). Its working perfectly fine. However,
am having trouble when I try with data from another server (server 2).

When I define a repository connection of type windows share and specify the
server name (server 2) with my credentials, the connection status shows
"Connection working". But when I run a job to use this repository
connection and index data from a location on this server 2, I keep getting
the exception below:

JCIFS: Possibly transient exception detected on attempt 3 while checking if
file exists: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.
jcifs.smb.SmbAuthException: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad
    at jcifs.smb.SmbTransport.checkStatus(

    at jcifs.smb.SmbFile.connect0(
    at jcifs.smb.SmbFile.queryPath(
    at jcifs.smb.SmbFile.exists(

Am able to access this location from windows explorer. What else should I
be checking or what could be the reasons/factors causing this to fail ?

Thanks and Regards,
