WSS Activities - Copy to another location error

Feb 17, 2012 at 8:03 PM

I was wondering if anyone who has used the "Copy to another location" activity encountered "Web application at ... could not be found.." error.

I am trying to copy the file to another Web application hosted on a different server.

I am assuming it is a permission issue and wanted to know what kind of permissions need to be setup on both Web servers for this to work.

Appreciate any help you can provide!

Thanks

hemantdesai - that won't work.  This thing uses the object model to do the copy, so the source & destination will need to be on the same farm.  I'm not sure if it will work across web applications on the same farm or not, it's been quite a while since I've done anything with this.

Thanks for the quick reply Ryan. I will have to find an alternative solution since the two sites that we have cannot reside on the same Farm.

You could rewrite the copy to use a weservice upload or to use webdav.

Unfortunately, I am not familiar with programming within SharePoint. I can use SPD but that is where my knowledge ends.
