I have a Subversion Server running as a resident service on a Windows XP Pro machine. That service needs to access a secure network fileshare, so I used the Services->Properties->Log On tab to tell the service to run as a user who has access to the target fileshare. That works out fine until the machine restarts, when the service fails to autostart.
I am able to start it manually by logging in, going back to that Services->Properties->Log On tab and reconfiming the explicit credentials.
- Do I have to manually start this service under alternate credentials every time the machine reboots?
- Is there something else I can do to make sure that my Subversion server service autostarts with proper access to authenticate against this network share?
