In our new Webfarm that Im working on we currently have the following.
1 Windows 2003 Standard Server setup with a share called Weblogs
3x Windows 2003 Web Servers in a NLB cluster.
What I want to be able to do is dump the logs onto the log server but with the servrs not being in a domain im having problems with accessing the share on the log server.
Originally I created an account on all 4 servers that was identical and gave that full access to the share on the log server, then on the servers I added a startup script in gpedit to launch the following batch file at startup.
net use \\server_name\share_name /USER:Test test /PERSISTENT:YES
This does not work though, so how else could I do this? Could I run IIS Service using this account that is identical on all the servers and the log server so that it will have access? or is it not recommended to change the account the IIS service run's with?
Any idea's would be greating appreciated.
