I haven't found support for this yet. I have a need for this as well and am considering writing an adapter to support get/put operations using smbclient. If there's a better/quicker way to accomplish this, I'd be very excited to learn about it laugh

We had toyed with the idea of mounting all of the shares as cifs filesystems on the RHEL 8.5 hosts, but there are quite a few ... Dynamically establishing a connection and then performing the required operation is preferred.

I will create a pex smb client. Thanks!

Mount such folder as a network disk, and you can use it. Just be aware, that you have to mount it under the right user, which runs IRIS.

My req is a smb client, but I will create one using a Java pex client and I will publish into OEX to the community use it. Thanks!
