Any ideas would be appreciated.
IIS6/CF7 WIN 2003 Server
By default, the ColdFusion service runs under the "LocalSystem" user
account. Usually this account does not have any privileges to resources
outside of the local system. Either this user needs to be provided the
necessary permissions, or the ColdFusion service needs to run under a
user that had the proper privileges, changed under the "run as"
parameter of the services administration dialog in the services panel.
The latter is what we prefer to do. We create a specific user account
just for the ColdFusion service and give it any and all privileges and
rights necessary to do the tasks we want it to do.
Thanks!, I got excited for a minute but I added a new user with "God" access and added it to the CF Service and it still didn't work. I have a drive R: as well as a virtual directory within my web folder that I can see just fine in IIS and through the web. I can understand not being able to hit the mapped drive but access on a virtual directory *should* be transparent.
Any other ideas?
See your original thread - http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=3&threadid=1233286&CFID =26365140&CFTOKEN=82a4d243384ee167-2CC821F5-E55E-13E6-84E0C25E09444AC4&jsessionid=48309888 bc6c226d7e73. Use a UNC path and not a mapped drive. The mapping is associated with your desktop user and probably not known to services.
I created a user with admin rights however this account was a local account and NOT a domain account with network access.
I will try that.
Thank you for your time
As you replied. The CF user will need domain permissions to the remote
system for CF to see it. ColdFusion has no knowledge of IIS virtual
directories. Different systems, different controls.
