Windows File Sharing Permission/Access Issues


I am attempting to apply permissions on a Windows share that is on a server different than the portal.

The system is mounted and the repository is working. But just for myself, the administrator. I only have rights as a base user, that's it. All other users are getting an access denied error. On the log defaulttrace.trc the error is that the portal can't get the system share from the system factory. The error following that is that the portal failed to get the mapping data for the user. That is what I would expect if the user could not "see" the share system.

My question is why? The user has read access to that system. Even at owner, the user still can not use it. I have the Iview set up as a KM navigational iview. The only way I have been able to get users to see information on the share is via system pricipals but, that overides Windows security and they see EVERYTHING.

Has anyone else ran into my situation? I want to a repository based on a Windows share that gives the users rights based on their Windows ID.
