  • Question

  • I have a windows service that I am trying to use to access a MOSS 2007 to set data in list ,

    WHen my server attempts to access the same share I get an access denied error.

    On my local machine I can do everything but on our windows 2008 server it cannot. I can't get any other information other than 'access denied' so is there a way to get a more detailed error or trace what is happening?

    So again:
    In windows 2003 I can access the list  windows service cannot
    On my local machine (XP) the service can access the share.


    that's general Exception I have :

    The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( Application ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event

  • Hussam - we has a similar issue you might try and check the IIS Authentication Providers listed on your server / web host make sure that you NTLM listed as the primary provider.
