I have a problem where I need to map the public folder using the PC SYSTEM account user in order for the files to be served /access via a WCF service (or IIS). As mentioned, in a Windows service setup or IIS / web hosted setup this must be done as the call to the file uses the SYSTEM or IIS-USR account. Due to permission problems a normal mapping will not work. Just BTW - a normal “:windows explorer - map network drive” works fine for windows explorer copy and paste files etc - but not for an IIS/windows service file access.
I have several Seagate blackarmour 440 NAS drives and purchased this WD sentinel as a result of the suppliers having no stock of the seagate. Really regretting that now!
For each of the Seagate NAS drives I use the following to create a network mapping on server bootup:
1 - create a task in task scheduler that runs a BAT file (net use z: \NASDRIVE\sharefolder /persistent:no)
2 - set the task to use the system account when it executes
It works 100% with the Seagate NAS’s, but using the exact same method with the DX4000 simply does nothing.
It logs the error:
Task Scheduler failed to execute task “\Map X Drive” . Attempting to restart. Additional Data: Error Value: 267014.
which simply means the task failed to execute.
I’d really appreciate anyone helping me on this as soon as possible.
