Access denied on Shares and Service Control Actions


This one is very hard to analyze because you will typically look at the wrong places:


  • Windows Server 2012 running on Hyper-V ESX 5.0
  • addtional disk D: is defined in VMware as hot plugable disk
  • audit object access policy is enabled in Windows Server 2012
  • a network share is pointing to a directory on this disk
  • a Windows Service executable is located on this disk

Every attempt to start/stop the service or access to a directory or file below the share will result in an access denied error regardless of any existing access control list of the service or share.

For details search the web for VMware and 2039739.
