I recently upgraded all of my servers to 2003 R2. Ever since the upgrade I cannot run installers or executables that are stored on other servers. This worked great before the upgrade. I have a server that houses all of our program deployments and service packs and all my production servers have a mapped drive pointing to this specific server. When I click on whatever I want to install I get the following:
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropiate permissions to access the item."
All permissions are set right and I get this same error with the enterprise Admin account. I know it is not a permissions issue on the directory itself.
So what I have to do is copy the whole thing locally and run it after I go into the properties of the executable and hit the 'new' unblock button that R2 introduced.
I do I make R2 'let' me run remote executables...
Thank you for any help regarding the matter.
