Setting up Webdav


  • Im trying to setup a webdav server.  This is the only function on the server currently.  I am setting up a virtual directory ( directory)

    The main website has nothing on it and is not being used.  The virtual directory points to my dfs path back to the file servers.  I have tried every way I can think of to get this to work but all I ever get is either http 500.19 error or an endless loop of login box. I currently have impersonation set with windows login enabled.  I do not have any https settings set at this time.  Can someone give me a good walk through for 2012 to get this working with domain credentials.  We currently have a 2003r2 box that is about to be retired running webdav.  It works perfectly. It is using basic auth with https website cert but I understand 2008 and 2012 dont like to operate that way.  

    In the end i need 2 virtual directories under the website to be assessable via webdav.  I hope someone can help me out.

  • Thanks Niko.

    I think I have this working now.  My authentication error was fixed by me setting up a service account and using that account in the app pool.  I gave that account the security groups that would allow it to see the folders in the virtual directory.  After setting the user up in the app pool I switched to basic authentication on the website and virtual directory and made sure my 443 stuff was set up.  Everything appears to be working now.
