i have a windows service on one server(server1) that gets started up using account:

domain1\jbloggs

on the other server(server2) i have a folder \\server1\temp
 which that user domain1\jbloggs from server1 needs to be able to access


the problem i have is that the path \\server1\temp is embedded in the database, and because
jbloggs cannot access the folder over the network , the application being started up from the windows service
now doesnt start up

according to what you write, your TMP share is on server1, not server2...

Anyway, whether the share is on server1 or server2, check that the user has the rights on the folder and the share. Remember that by default, a share is read only on windows 2003.

domain1\jbloggs needs to have both Share permissions as well as NTFS rights to be able to access \\server1\temp.
