DTS Error "Access is Denied" in Bulk Insert using a UNC
Posted on 2004-09-01
My DTS package containing a Bulk Insert task runs fine when the source is a local path (c:\temp\Data\1.txt). However when I change it to a UNC path (referencing the same server) as \\server\share\temp\data\1.txt, I get the following error:
"Could not bulk insert because file '\\server\share\temp\Data\1.txt' could not be opened. Operating system error code 5(Access is denied.)"
I guess this is a Permissions error, but I am not sure what exactly needs to be done. I am using SQL Server Authentication (even tried "sa" user) and for this server, "Everyone" has full control on the Data folder.
Could someone point me to the resolution?
