Indexing files on remote server

I am trying to create a verity collection that indexes a share on a remote
server.  (We have a front end webserver, and a static data server
 - I am trying to index files on the static server, via a UNC path)

I believe the systems are set up properly in regards to the user which the
CF services are running as having proper permissions to the share.

I can successfully create files on the remote server using CFFILE from the
webserver using the same UNC path - so I would think that the verity
indexer would be able to read those files.

Here is the exact tag I use:
      <cfindex collection="#variables.collection_name#"
            action="update"
            type="path"
            key="\\Server\Path\To\My\Files"
            extensions="#application.inc_index_extensions#"
            recurse="yes">

When I change the "key" attribute to some local drive\directory
(like "D:\cache\0000\Docs") it works just fine.

Am I forgetting something?

Thanks in advance.

Would it be possible to map the share as a drive, and index it by referencing the mapped drive letter?

Just a suggestion. :)

Tried that already. ColdFusion doesn't seem to recognize mapped drive letters to a share. The ColdFusion server and all it's functions work, it is the Verity parts, like cfindex, that have a problem.

Thanks anyways.

Anyone else have a clue?

What do the permissions look like on '\\Server\Path\To\My\Files'?

Does 'Everyone' have read access to that share?

If this is not practical for security reasons, then you will have to run the CF service as a user (most admins create a CF user specifically for this), then give that user read access to the UNC folder.
