530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.

IIS 6.0. Windows Server 2003 R2.

Trying to connect with Filezilla. I have three FTP accounts. Two work and one does not.

"530 User xxx cannot log in, home directory inaccessible."

I'm connecting with a valid user account. The user's profile has a local path of "C:\Inetpub\ftproot\LocalUser\xxx" - same as the other accounts.

xxx has full control over both the junction link folder:

C:\Inetpub\ftproot\LocalUser\xxx

and the destination folder:

E:\Web Apps\xxx

Again, same as the other two accounts that work.

What might I be missing?

Pls check to ensure that the permission is propagated properly to the folder xxx

Yes. As I stated above:

"xxx has full control over both the junction link folder and the destination folder"

The issue was that the folder name in the directory:

C:\Inetpub\ftproot\LocalUser\

has to be the same as the user name. It was not and I misrepresented that in my question.

The problem has been resolved.
