When using the root of a share, the exportsyslog command fails to export with the below errors:

ERROR: An error occurred uploading files

Environment

LEM 6.3.1

Cause 

There is an error in the script that is run when the exportsyslog command runs.

Resolution

Instead of using the root of the share, put the files one level deeper.

For example instead of \\server\share, use \\server\share\folder.
