I'm using Windows 7 and have a remote folder available. Let's call it
I can map a network drive to the folder root, so
Z:\ points to
\\mycompany-portal. I originally used the command prompt
pushd \\mycompany-portal, however manual mapping through windows explorer makes no difference.
I note that the mapped drive is actually a DavWWWRoot
I can navigate to
z:\somefolder\attachments in Windows Explorer and create a new folder therein successfully.
However, when I attempt to create a folder in this location from the cmd.exe command prompt using
mkdir I get the error:
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
The mkdir command was
mkdir 11112. The intention was for 11112 to be the Sharepoint call id. This fails, however
mkdir blahblah works just fine in the command prompt
Why would this be?
