SQL Server 2005 Permissions Question - I think

Hi,

I have the following SQL statement that returns the error shown.

BULK INSERT dbo.tablename FROM '\\server\xxx\filename' WITH (FIELDTERMINATOR = '|', ROWTERMINATOR = '');

Error message...
msg 4861, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Cannot bulk load because the file '\\server\xxx\filename' could not be opened. Operating system error code 5(Access is denied.).

I have added the SQL Service account as a user on the share and can see the file using that account.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Bill

Aside from share permissions did you also give the SQL service account NTFS permissions?

To narrow down where the error is occurring, I recommend that you copy the file to the machine hosting the SQL Server instance and then test the bulk insert. As described above, it must be a folder to which which your account or the service account has access. If it works on a local file, but not a remote file, you may be hitting a double hop issue.

Hi,

Just to follow up - still waiting on SQL admin to make the changes to see if that corrects the issue.

Thanks,

Still not resolved.  Worked around using MS Access to load into SQL.
