I have a C# web application running on sever A. After the user updates his password, this application needs to create a text file on sever B. Then another application will read this text to excute some windows jobs.
As I know the account run the C# web application is the sever A machine account "ASPNET". We can't make this account have the right to write a file on server B. Is it possible I can change the credential to a windows account so the application can write a file on server B?

Many Thanks,

I think you can add an <indentity impersonate=userName password=thePassword /> to your web.config.

I find identities a little confusing under ASP.Net, so I could be wrong...

In the folder where the text file is to be created on "B"  give NETWORK_SERVICE full rights

Actually we give the machine account the right to access that folder and it works.
