How To Make Tomcat6 Windows Service Make Access To The Files Using Only Local System Account Instead Of Domain Name Can I do Any Configurations for
That,Any Help is Appreciated.
Well, first of all a Windows service doesn't have any mapped drives. So if when you sign on you see your N drive mapped to \\server\whatever, don't assume that a Windows service sees that as well. It doesn't. So your code is going to have to use the UNC path \\server\whatever\thing and not the mapped version N:\thing.
And second of all a Windows service can't access files via a UNC path unless it is running under a specific user ID which has access to that UNC path. Those local system accounts don't work for that.
This is true for all Windows services, not just for Tomcat running as a Windows service.
