unable to Export inventory to a file

When I try to export inventory a CSV file /opt/CSCOpx, I get the error

"File name should be between 1 and 255 characters" I go in and create a file and call it file1 and redo the operation and then I get the following error

"Either you have not selected a valid file or file does not have required permission" my permissio for the file is drwxr-xr-x :

I'm runing RME 4.0.5 on Solaris 9

Re: unable to Export inventory to a file

Those permissions are for a directory. You should not have to pre-create the file. Instead, pick a location that is writable by casuser (/opt/CSCOpx works, but you should avoid NMSROOT). I usually create a separate /opt/cisco_shared directory for such things, and do:

chown casuser:casusers /opt/cisco_shared

chmod 0750 /opt/cisco_shared

Then use that directory as your destination, and give the file a reasonable name (e.g. inv_export.csv).
