PV Worker Common File System Permissions

PV Worker Common File System Permissions

On one network, I have:

* Windchill running as a service owned by Local System.

* On the worker machine GSWorker is running as an actual user. (Needed because we are using SSL)

* I have two worker machines, one for MS Office type files and another for ProE files.

* One is configured with an FTP server the other just uses a common file system path.

* This setup works.

On our other network, more secure, I have: essentially the same thing except currently I only have one worker machine.

* Windchill service owned by Local System,

* GSWorker service owned by a real user.

* Using a common file system path

* This setup fails, log file says:
Problem creating directory \\<server-name>\cad_viewables\w1i1j2. It already exists as a file
Problem creating directory \\<server-name>\cad_viewables\w1i1j2. Do not have write access

From the windchill server I can write, & delete files in \\<server-name>\cad_viewables\<file: \\%3cserver-name%3e\cad_viewables\="> No problems
The hot-line is trying to tell me it's because I have Windchill running as Local System. I'm not convinced. Does anyone know for sure what user is writing the files in that location?

Also can I get around this permissions issue by using an FTP server?

I would recommend using an ftp server. I was wondering why you would use
UNC for one and FTP for the other? They're very easy to setup using IIS
for the worker.

David,

Hoping below does not sound obvious and stupid.

I do not think it is because it is a service - I think there is just a
mismatch on users.  I would check to see who windchill is running as.
You can use the task manager to check.  I would guess you are not
logging in as the same user the service is running as.  If you need more
information than - use the task manager drop me an email and I can give
you more detail.
