Using Import server in Document Capture to convert pdf files from a network share.  This works most of the time, but occasionally Import Server randomly returns the below error:

05/30/14 09:02:56 1105 Start processing batch \\server\ODCScanner$\Scanned Docs\QA\SmartBarcode\ Batch #1.

The PDF will later import correctly without error on a future pass.
