    Network drives on another server

    Morning,

    I am getting an error whenever I map a drive that doesn't live on the HAP server box. is there any special permissions I need to do on the drive?

    The permissions are set right on the share and in the folders for the user trying to access.

    In the basic version its saying I don't have permission to access the drive.. int he extended its throwing up error messages.

    Any specifics on the error? (screen shots ect)

    We have HAP running on our internal web server with the data on a seprate server and I can't think of any extra setup.

    Error: Unauthorised Access

    You have attempted to access a restricted resource


    Its running on IIS 7.5 on W2008R2 if that helps.

    Are you running it over HTTPS and also check your config files that the drive maps have the permissions listed there as well.

    e.g.

    <add drive="P" name="Public" unc="\\server1\public" enablereadto="All" enablewriteto="Admin Computer User" enablemove="True" />

    Where you see the enablereadto and enablewriteto thats the permissions that HAP uses in the first instance.

    I've tried different combinations of permissions including All and All and its still denied.

    If I change the permission on the share to everyone then it lets me in, if I leave it with the permissions set for the user then its access denied.

    Seriously, don't you just love computers.. its started working.. I was adding the rest of the drives and changing the permissions and testing and lo and behold.. I could access the remote drives.

    O the fun, sounds like either the page had been cached by the browser, or the web.config hadn't been cleared from cache
