Ensuring Windows Services can access Novell NetWare directories

01 Aug

Ended up spending some time getting this to get this to work last week. We had some Windows services running on a Windows Server (Server 2003) that needed to access data on a NetWare volume. While a logged in user could access the data on the NetWare server, the windows service could not (or was intermittent at best).

Here’s what I found – hope someone finds it helpful.

Per Microsoft – Windows services should use UNC paths not Mapped Drives

Novell’s direction on getting MS Service applications to access NetWare volumes if the service was written in a non-novell-aware manner.

After following the latter directions everything is working great.

Time to get back to some RIA development 🙂
