Is icttechsupport an ad group or an ou? Hap only sees ad groups not ous
icttechsupport is an AD group. Does it it need to be specified in the top section of the web.config file?
How about you pop up your web.config file (obviously remove your passwords) and we can take a look see if there is anything we can spot?
Does hardocoding the adminstrator password and username in the config file create a security concern? What users are people using in the strings
<adsettings adusername= ..... adpassword=......>
Also, what is the studentgroupname?
earlier comment in the thread. If the server became compromised (which you have to accept as a possibility when you are publishing externally) then potentially a malicious user could gain your domain admin credentials. I used a standard user account and it worked fine for me, but I'm only really using the file access part at the moment, so I have not tested the other functionality.
SOLVED - Left for information
Great program but i've come across a 'bug', does anyone else use this to 'Hand in' work from students? What I've got is a folder on our shared drive called 'hand in' with the following privs for the students:
- 'This folder' has List/Read privs for students
- 'Subfolders' has List/Read/Create/Write
- 'Subfolders and Files has Create/Write/Write Attr/Write Ex Attr/Read Permissions
The last privs is me clutching at straws somewhat because the following occurs:
I'm testing when a teacher creates a folder for a specific task/class underneath the 'hand in' parent folder for the pupils to place their work. The privs seem to work as intended, pupils can add a file to the folder but they cannot view any of the files. When done via HAP the upload is successful but the (silverlight) UI doesn't indicate this instead you are left with 'Uploading...' (even though the file has been 100% sent) - the HTML uploader seems to work fine.
Should the silverlight UI show 'upload complete' or similar? Does it require any different privs to the HTML uploader?
PS Just tried as an 'admin' user and the same thing occurs so I'm thinking this is perhaps an OSX issue - i've tried with Safari/Chrome; trying good old IE (on windows) now...
Yep sorry its silverlight on OSX being naughty .. i'll leave this info here incase anyone else needs it.

I'm getting an error when I try and delete a file, does anyone else get this or has anyone seen this before. I have attached the error which occurs in both IE and Firefox.
Does the directory exist?
Can the logged in person delete it if they access it through a normal explorer window??
May be worth checking the perms of the item in question just in case...

Ah, i'm having a stupid moment. It's my account and my home area i'm trying to delete a file from. My area is on a NAS box which i'm testing out before I move our staff across, I just found out I hadn't given myself permissions to acess the share correctly. It all works now.
OK, ive got this working quite well at the moment, but i just can't figure out how to create the file for the booking system upload from sims so it can auto populate the timetable. Can someone please help?
It isn't very well implemented at this time. When we get our timetable in SIMS i'll be able to write a better importer, with a sample report to run. Our Assistant Head is dragging her feet with it, it's been pushed back 3 times now (2 years). She still does it by hand, but never imports it into SIMS. August, hopefully!
Ok, cheers nick. If I put the current timetabled lessons into the booking system as static bookings will they be on the booking system as unavailable periods for booking the room?
