I am wanting to set up database extract synchronization over
a network and am wondering if there is a way to use remotedb
with UNC file paths (that doesn't seem to be working).

Thanks,

Adam

Do you mean dbremote.exe or dbxtract.exe? There's no executable called
remotedb.exe in our product.
What version and build of ASA are you using?
Can you describe what "doesn't seem to be working" means? Is an error
returned or do small gnome-like creatures appear on your computer screen and
start acting out scenes from Monty Python movies?

The short answer (without any sarcastic remarks this time, sorry about that)
is that you should be able to use UNC path names in either dbxtract or
dbremote.
