A new question
I want to create two virtual directories(Application URI) where one refers to local system(where iPlanet server runs) and other one refers to a different system which is in physical network connection.

I directly opened the web-apps.xml file and added the following two lines

For Local system
 <web-app uri="/LocalFiles" dir="E:\LOCAL_FILES" enable="true"/>

For Network sytem
 <web-app uri="/NetWorkFiles" dir="\\client01\D\NETWORK_FILES" enable="true"/>

While i am trying to access the Local system URI it is working fine and the IE displays the contents of the directory.But while accessing other URI i am getting 'HTTP 500 Internal server error'.so how can i map a virtual directory for a folder which is in network system.

We are using Windows 2000 and iPlanet web server version 6.0

your iplent service run under local system accoutn which has no access to windows network resource. go to control panel, services and find iplenet service, change run as an administrator account.

The IPlanet server has to be logged on as a Domain User instead of the "Local System" to access network resources.

you need to run it as a domain user, domain\administrator, this will requires you domain must be available when you start your iplanet.

if you must use local administrator, you may also try login as administrator and map network resource to local driver, then make it auto reconnect and save the password.
