I have two servers. I have set Telerik.AsyncUpload.TemporaryFolder in my web.config on both servers. On server # 1, the setting looks like this: "\\192.168.0.5\upload\". On server #2 (which hosts the shared folder), it looks like this: "c:\files\upload\". Both point to exactly the same folder, and both servers have write permissions. I do not have a target folder set.
This generally works, but occasionally fails. I end up with the uploaded file in "c:\files\upload" on server #1. When my process looks for the file in the shared folder on server #2, it is not there. Nowhere on server #1 is the temp file location set to that local folder - it is always set to the shared folder.
I modified the temp location on server #2 to use the same share path as server #1. This seems to be working, but I will need to watch it for a while.
So, two questions. First, was I causing my own problem by using two different strings to point to the same shared folder? And second, is there any issue with not using a target folder? I just pick up the files from the temp folder and move them where I need them. This seems to be ok, but I thought I would ask in case I am missing something.
