    My Files only works for admins

    Hi,

    I've just set up HAP+ 8.4 (with 8.4.1 My Files patch) and set up a couple of mapped drives for use, and thats worked nicely. I can do everything I want with it logged in as the admin user.

    However when I came to test it as a student login, it logs into the home page fine, but when i click my files, it loads the page, but fails to load the shares, I just get a rotating refresh arrow next to the top level 'My Drives' item in the tree, and a couple of messages below saying "Something is wrong" and that it's been logged. I'm assuming its some permission error given it works as admin but not as a student, but I don't know where logs might tell me.

    Apologies if this has been asked before but a quick scan of the forum didn't turn anything up.

    Any ideas?

    David

    Edit: I should probably mention its IIS6 on an old 2003R2 server we have.

    Edit 2: Did a bit of api peeking, on the admin login I get (from /api/MyFiles/Drives):
    -
    <ArrayOfDrive xmlns="http://schemas.datacontract.org/2004/07/HAP.MyFiles" xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    - <Drive>
    <Actions>Change</Actions>
    <Icon>../images/icons/netdrive.png</Icon>
    <Name>Documents</Name>
    <Path>N\</Path>
    <Space>79.79</Space>
    </Drive>
    </ArrayOfDrive>
    But logged in as a student I get back JSON (also from /api/MyFiles/Drives):
    XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
    Location: https://hap.local/api/MyFiles/Drives
    Line Number 1, Column 1:{"Message":"Something is wrong","Detail":null,"FaultType":"Exception"}
    ^

    Check that the users have local logon rights to the server that is running HAP+

    None unfortunately, it's how HAP+ ensures security on your network.

    It's best to use a member server, usually it's a Terminal/Remote Desktop Server

    A VM would work. If your servers are 2012 I think you can install Hyper-V

    Did you ever get anywhere with this? I have this message showing for some users, and not others, and they're all in the same group.
