I have a loadbalanced web server where I'm trying to setup a virtual directory on one server (server02) to a network share on the other server (server01). Both servers are IIS 7 on Windows 2008R2. They are not part of a domain.
I setup the virtual directory on server02 connecting to the network share as an administrator of server01 (for testing purposes).
In IIS, I can browse the files that are in the virtual directory. When I click "Test Settings" in the virtual directory basic settings there are no errors and the virtual directory can connect to the share without problems.
However, when I'm trying to request a file (http://server02/media/image.jpg) through the virtual directory I get this configuration error "
An error occurred loading a configuration file: Failed to start monitoring changes to '\\server01\media' because access is denied.".
I have no idea what causes this because according to IIS the connection is ok.
