TeamCity On-Premises 2020.2 Help

SMB Upload

The SMB Upload build runner enables TeamCity to upload files/directories to Windows shares via Server Message Block (SMB) protocol.

The settings common for all runners are described in Configuring Build Steps; this page details the SMB Upload settings.



Deployment Target

Target URL

The URL should point to a host + share at least. Subdirectories are allowed here and will be created if missing. Valid examples:

\\host\share_name \\host\share_name\some\path \\host\c$\Temp

Note that the files with matching names will be rewritten in the target directory.

Name resolution

The DNS only name resolution allows switching JCIFS to "DNS-only" mode. May fix performance or out of memory exceptions (see this bitbucket issue for details). Is equivalent to following JCIFS settings:

-Djcifs.resolveOrder=DNS -Djcifs.smb.client.dfs.disabled=true

Deployment Credentials


Specify the username


Specify the password


Specify the domain

Deployment Source

Path to sources

Specify the deployment sources as a newline- or comma-separated list of paths to files/directories.

The field supports Ant-style wildcard patterns (for example, dir/**/*.zip ).
You can also specify a target directory to be created using the file => directory pattern (for example, *.zip => winFiles,unix/distro.tgz => linuxFiles will create the winFiles and linuxFiles directories, and respectively put the declared files inside them).
