I have an error when executing SQL Stored Procedure 2008 R2 using VB.net 2010

SqlException was unhandled:
Cannot bulk load because the file could not be opened. Operating System error code 5(Access is denied).

VB.net 2010 code:
Dim sqlConnection1 As New SqlConnection("Data Source=Main;Initial Catalog=Main;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Password=hello")
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand
        Dim rowsAffected As Integer

        cmd.CommandText = "spImportBulkInsertCommand"
        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
        cmd.Connection = sqlConnection1


        rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()


Open in new window

SQL Server 2008 R2 Stored Procedure:
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[spImportBulkInsertCommand]

You are using SQL authentication to access network share and i guess SQL service account is localsystem.

This account does not have access on the network share.

add <sqlserverComputerName> to Networkshare property and grant appropriate permission at least read permission.

How to do that?

Thank you.

Connect the server where Network share folder exists and right click on the folder>
click on security tab> add > click on objects type> check mark Computers> type the SQL server computername > click on check names

now you can see the <computername>$  add this and assign the permissions.

execute above code using windows authentication account and add this account in the security of network share folder same as above.

Are you able to execute this procedure in ssms? Share the error no. as well.

In addition try to execute this command, this way you can make sure you have permissions to connect the shared directory.
