What are options for developers to load files from Windows servers?
Posted on 2008-11-06
I have 3 Windows 2003 servers... dev, stage, prod.
Developers have a shared folder on the server where they do their development.
The dev server has a mapped folder to stage, and stage a mapped folder to prod.
When they are ready, I have a script I use to copy from their dev shared folder, to the mapped stage folder.
My problem... how can I let developers do this themselves, without giving them full admin rights to the box?
I want them to be able to copy their stuff from dev to stage, and stage to prod, but the only way I can think of is to let them RDP into the box as a user, then give that user share access to both drives, and let them copy stuff over manually.
However, then we have the problem of RDP only let's a couple users in. Could terminal services licenses solve this and if so how? I'm not familiar with terminal services.
Or is there a better way for developers to load without having admin rights to the servers?
