Publish KM Folder to a non-sap sytem's file system
Basically, we want to publish all the content of a specific folder of our KM on to our corporate Intranet site which is a non-sap system. Is there a way to be able to publish the content of the KM Folder on to a non-sap system's file system. I would appreciate if you can let me know of any solution for this. Let me know if you need any further clarification. Thanks.

If you are putting content on your Intranet and assuming that you would not be editing this content outside of KM, i.e. only read requests, then I would think that DBFS mode may be the most suitable, at least this is the most efficient mode and is more reliable than FSDB mode where there is a higher risk of metadata loss. Here the files would be stored in the filesystem and the folders and metadata would be stored in the DB. You main concern here would be synchronisation between the DB and FS so it's important no modification are done on the FS, even virus scanners .
So you can create such a repository : http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/en/62/468698a8e611d5993600508b6b8b11/content.htm
You will then have this repository available under KM Content and can create subfolders into which you want to publish your reports.
To be honest I haven't encountered such a scenario before, where KM content was published to an external intranet and it's difficult to say what will work best in your scenario. The other option is to use the webDAV link directly to the content in KM, if you go to details > settings > properties > access links > of any KM resource you will fine the WebDAV URL to that resource which you can use to access the content via webDAV using web folders, map network drive, or just accessing the URL directly, perhaps this is something you could use either. Have a look at:
I hope this helps.
