Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am trying to use Web Deploy to deploy a site where the Site is rooted on a UNC path instead of a local drive. This is because I want to have a shared configuration, and have all servers point to the same UNC for content. That would allow me to deploy to one server and have all servers updated at the same time. I've created a share with everyone and users read/write. The NTFS permissions have the ID of the appDomain account as full control, and that is the same account that is configured as the specific user in Management Service Delegation. I can log on to the destination server as that ID, access the share and create/delete files.

However, I'm getting the following exception in my Microsoft Web Deploy log on the destination server:

User: Client IP: 192.168.62.174 Content-Type: application/msdeploy Version: 9.0.0.0 MSDeploy.VersionMin: 7.1.600.0 MSDeploy.VersionMax: 9.0.1631.0 MSDeploy.Method: Sync MSDeploy.RequestId: c060c823-cdb4-4abe-8294-5ffbdc327d2e MSDeploy.RequestCulture: en-US MSDeploy.RequestUICulture: en-US ServerVersion: 9.0.1631.0 Skip: objectName="^configProtectedData$" Provider: auto, Path: A tracing deployment agent exception occurred that was propagated to the client.

This is shown as the following on the console of the machine where I run the deployment:

Does it have permissions to all the parent folders in the path? that's what came to mind as something I've had more problems with than I care to count. –  HopelessN00b Aug 24 '12 at 1:12
    
It does - The shared folders are on the root of what is E:\ on that server, and the account has full control of that folder and everything in it. –  Peter LaComb Jr. Aug 24 '12 at 12:40
