How to access CIFS share to update a CSV file with payload data

Hi Team,

I am using vRA 7.5 and my requirement is to add Hostname and Environment from payload to a CSV file in a Windows share path.

I have read the post, https://www.vcoteam.info/articles/learn-vco/278-how-to-allow-the-vco-appliance-to-write-files-to-a-w... , not worked in my case as it was throwing an error "cifs share is not a valid block device". The cifs util is not installed in vRO. I am unable to mount the CIFS path as a local mount.

Please help me if there is any solution for it or with some alternatives ways of updating the CSV file with Hostname and Environment(Prod/DEV etc which comes from payload).

Thanks and Regards,

Sasidhar

I have faced issues with mounting Windows share as a local drive to vRO.

The other options are, adding powershell as host and copy to CSV which was not implemented due to some port limitations.

Finally, using SCP to Windows share through port 22 worked like a charm.
