I have never been able to schedule a report to load to a path/folder. I would really like to schedule reports to load to a SharePoint folder. Has anyone ever got schedule to path working?
I'm sure that works in any case. The SLM server itself must have write access to the destination.
SLM does not use AD authentication. What account has to be used for access?
Have you looked at the report export logs on the SLM server to see what the error might be saving to disk?

I have followed the steps and read the contributions, but they still do not give a good answer. The local service account cannot be used on another server.
However, I found one helpful way - using C:\ on the SLM allows me to get the files from it. It's better than nothing.
May I recommend a sleeker way, such that one can enter the domain\username and password to be used to export the file to the external path?
Can you setup a folder shortcut to your local machine on the SLM server desktop? Target that folder, which should look local?
Yes, I could do something like that but it does not help much with collaboration among teams, some of whom are not Snow users or even in IT. I am trying to get my team to deliver reports directly to the business, instead of having to send them. Thanks, Mark.
I also wanted to schedule some Reports from SLM WebGUI directly to a shared folder on SharePoint. The official answer I got from Snow Support 28th September 2017: "We can confirm that saving to an network location should be possible, but not a sharepoint."
Sounds like a new feature request in the making to me.
What is the process for requesting a new feature?
Submit a feature request ticket to SNOW Support.
A SharePoint folder today is not so different from a UNC path, since it can be opened in Windows Explorer. But the issue is that I can't get it towrk either to a network drive or SharePoint. As with SCCM, the right solution should involve providing the credentials to the destination path from Snow Reports.
I haven't tried this, but what about writing the file to the local drive on the SLM server, then scheduling a bat program to copy/move the file to whatever share you wanted. If you run the bat program as a user that has write access to the share, that may do what you are looking for.
