aspdotnet_website_programming thread: UNC share error


Message #1 by "J Donahue" <jdonahue@f...> on Thu, 9 May 2002 01:10:54
I get the following error message while trying to create a new project on 
the server in .NET:  
------------------------
The default Web access mode for this project is set to file share, but 
the project folder at 'http://172.20.4.80/DIBase/Webapplication1' cannot 
be opened with the path "\\INDLENDERS\wwroot$\DIBASE\Webapplication1'.  
The error returned was:
'Unable to create Web project 'DIBase/Webapplication1'.  The UNC 
share '\\INDLENDERS\wwwroot$\DIBase\Webapplication1' does not exist or 
you do not have access.
------------------------------
How do I fix this error.  I believe it has something to do with the NTFS 
on the server.  Where do I access the NTFS and how do I modify it so I do 
have access??  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you in advance!!

	Actually the only way for me to fix this problem was to edit the
machine.config (search for machine.config, its buried deep under \winnt) and
change the user that runs the ASP.NET ISAPI DLL(s) from whatever its
initially named to SYSTEM (and rebooted).  Although this is a security
problem, it was the only way I could get it to work properly.
