Troubleshooting tips

Problem Description Solution
The device does not get registered and the AutoStore button does not appear on the device panel. Make sure the AutoStore server is running (with a process that contains the Konica Minolta MFP Capture component) and make sure the corresponding device was added to the list of devices (using the device manager application). Furthermore make sure the device IP address is listed in the correct group (if the Common Group is not being used).  If this still does not fix this issue please check the network connectivity between the device and the AutoStore server, especially: router settings, fire wall settings, port settings, IP-routing etc.
The device registers correctly and I can see the AutoStore button on the panel. Pressing the AutoStore button displays "Connecting to server"; and eventually the connection times out. This is most likely a network issue. Check the network connectivity between the devices and the AutoStore server, especially: router settings, firewall settings, port settings and IP-routing.
Devices get registered correctly and I can see the forms at the device. I can fill out all the fields but get an error on the screen after scanning - "... Check Protocol”. Make sure you have the latest Firmware installed on the MFP. Check if the encryption is enabled with repository type WEBDAV.
WebDAV repository is selected and after scanning documents at the device, there is a Protocol error displayed on the device. Check if the encryption is enabled with repository type WEBDAV.Disable Encryption or switch the repository type to FTP.

When a menu and a form are added at the same nesting level, the form is nested one additional level down on the device display even though this added form resides at the same nesting level when configuring properties for the component. Forms and menus cannot reside at the same nesting level on the device display. When a form and menu are added on the same nesting level, the form will always be pushed down one-level on the device display.
