IIS 7.0 using network drive to access files
Posted on 2011-09-08
We have an application written in C# MVC hosted on IIS 7.0 (Server 2008) and are trying to write files to another network server.
I have tried mapping a drive and writing to that drive, which has failed. I have tried using my credendtials and saving those in the mapping process which has also failed. Accessing the other server by name or by IP has failed as well.
In reading hundreds of articles it is apparent the method desired by Microsoft is to store the files on the same box. We cannot do that due to a legacy system. We have to use the other server in order to store these files.
Surely one of you experts have come across this? Please help; our deadline is in 6 days...
