hey guys,

I have a server with a 'pub' folder, shared to everyone with read access. I want to deploy (push) a local file to the pub folder using a batch file for easy deployment. I have administrator rights on the server, but am not on the same workgroup, so I'll need to authenticate.

I can do this :

net use \\myserver\c$ mypass /user:myserver\administrator
copy c:\myfile.exe \\myserver\c$\pub

this does what I want, however, can't do the following which I'd prefer to use :

net use \\myserver\pub mypass /user:myserver\administrator
copy c:\myfile.exe \\myserver\pub

latter one gives an access denied error.

This is because the share is what you're accessing, and it states that everyone has read only access only.

If you want the second command to work, then you need to add write permission for your username to the share.

Hope this helps!

you also need to check the NTFS permissions.  When sharing files and folders within windows you have to check both the NTFS and Share permissions.  Bartender_1 was correct in stating that your account will need the write permission, you just need to make sure that its for both the share and NTFS.

thanks for the clarification jhoop2002, although, the fact that they can access and write to the file using the C$ share, but not the pub share, would indicate to me that they do have NTFS permissions to that folder.

ah, thanks guys, how could I overlook this =) yes it was the share permissions. I usually give full control for everyone to the share, and let ntfs permissions to handle it, did the same and it's ok now =)
