  • ALCON,

    I have been having this very same problem since June 2016.  The problem was with an application provided by a company that was formerly a part of Microsoft  that runs on multiple servers in a cluster environment. The job "Coordinator" application maintains a resource inventory in UNC format. The resources inventoried (nominally a file" is listed as "<a href="file://\\\<share>\...">\\<server>\<share>\...".  When I try to access the file from the <server> through the application, the file gets an "Access Denied" error.  Mapping the device using UNC form on  <server> does not help at all.  By signing on another server in the application "cluster" and running the application there, however works.  When the application accesses the file under control of the cluster access works. After a lot of testing and poking I found that when the <server> is <localhost_name> the security information is not set up properly for UNC file referencing. This results in the Access denied problem.  The reason I know this is that I can access the file in the standard "<device>:\<folder> all day and no problems. When I try to access the folder using the UNC form name on where server is the local host name, I get the failure.
