Unable to open files from UNC path on server
Posted on 2008-11-03
I have a very odd problem with an SBS2003 server. I am logged in via RDP and i can access local files correctly, however i am unable to open files located on the server via there UNC paths. For example, in the clientapps directory i am able to browse and open files in it by going to F:\ClientApps\Office\Outlook e.t.c however should i browse to //pc08-server/clientapps/office/outlook . . i am able to browse the share perfectly, but whenever i try to open or execute a file i get an error message stating
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item"
Now i have checked the permissons, i am logged in as a domain admin and according to the NTFS permissions i have full access, and according to the share permissions all users have full access.
If i log into a workstation using exactly the same credentials i do not get the same problem.
