We are setting up a new web server. Win 2008 Server Web edition SP2 and IIS7. When I set up the virtual directories to point to a folder in the domain on another server and use Network service account the web app can't find the files. If I set it to a user with administrator privileges it sees the files fine. I'm rather new to the whole web server thing so any help would be appreciated. I need help giving permissions to these files via IIS virtual directories.
What is the best way to handle files that need to accessed via a web app. There are way to many to store on the server and we need regular file access to these too.
