Symptoms

In FR, you have defined an external folder (on the server's filesystem) for storing batch output (e.g., FR_PDF_Export=C:\\Oracle\\FRExport). You have created and saved a batch (e.g., Test_Batch) in the Workspace under a particular folder (e.g., Root\Test\FR).

You run Test_Batch with the bursting option applied and with the output option "Export as PDF" selected (with FR_PDF_Export as the output folder). The PDF files are successfully created under the C:\Oracle\FRExport\FR directory.

You run the batch again with bursting applied and now with multiple output options:

> Save As Snapshot in Repository (e.g., Root\FR\Snapshot as the destination folder in the repository)
> Export as PDF (FR_PDF_Export, same folder as the prior run)

Snapshots are successfully created and stored under Root\FR\Snapshot in Workspace. However, the external PDF files are created and stored under C:\Oracle\FRExport\FR\Snapshot.

The Batch Scheduler engine is picking up the "Snapshot" subdirectory name from the Workspace path (i.e., to which the snapshots were written: Root\FR\Snapshot), and subsequently creating the same subfolder under the C:\Oracle\FRExport\FR directory on the filesystem.

This only occurs when the batch has bursting applied and when both Snapshot and PDF options are chosen for output.
