SQL Server 2008R2 Errors creating database on network drive

Hi,

I'm trying to create a new database using a network path but am running into the following error.  Permissions seem to be in place for the account that SQL server service is running under as well as my own.  Sample query is:

CREATE DATABASE [db] ON  PRIMARY
( NAME = N'db', FILENAME = N'\\path\db.mdf' , SIZE = 3072KB , MAXSIZE = UNLIMITED, FILEGROWTH = 1024KB )
LOG ON
( NAME = N'db_log', FILENAME = N'\\path.db_log.ldf' , SIZE = 1024KB , MAXSIZE = 2048GB , FILEGROWTH = 10%)
GO

Msg 5123, Level 16, State 1, Line 8
CREATE FILE encountered operating system error 1337(The security ID structure is invalid.) while attempting to open or create the physical file '\\path\db.MDF'.
Msg 1802, Level 16, State 4, Line 8
CREATE DATABASE failed. Some file names listed could not be created. Check related errors.

Thanks

I believe the account running the SQL service has to have full permissions to the UNC share.  Not read/write/modify, but full.  Check both the share permissions and the NTFS permissions of the remote directory.

Thanks.  This is in place.

I'm logged into the server using a different set of creds though.  Could that be the source of the issue when the SQL service tries to use the account it's assigned?

Looking further into this, error 1337 seems to be ERROR_INVALID_SID.

I've checked that the account running the SQL service has full permissions on the share.  I'm connecting to the server under my own account when attempting to create the database.  I also have full permissions on the share.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
