Hi all,

When I edit a virtual machines properties and choose "Share image file instead of copying it" (to share a DVD ISO to the virtual machine) I get this error message:

'NEW_VM': User Account does not have sufficient privilege to open attachment '\\server.local\VMMLibrary\ISO\en_sql_server_2008_r2_enterprise_x86_x64_ia64_dvd_520517.iso'. Error: 'General access denied error' (0x80070005). (Virtual machine ID)
 (Unknown error (0x8001))

Please help?

that is because the VMM service tries to map the folder share as system/network account user and not the windows user account.

Try to run the VMM service with the account that has access to the folder and then try to use that iso image

Hi,

After some investigation, that is part of it, but it actually requires some delegation to be set up. Will give this a shot.
