    I have deployed Managed Service Accounts to run services, now, I want to know if they can be used to access network file shares?

    I am working in a Windows 2008R2 domain, and am wanting a Managed Service Account to “Connect as” in a virtual directory within IIS 7.5. I know this will work for the “Application Pool,” so I read…, but what about virtual directories?

    ~I have the MSA setup in AD, installed on the web server.
    ~The target file share on another 2008r2 server has the appropriate permissions (including the MSA), and the effective permissions look good.
    ~The virtual directory and it’s physical path set.
    ~Connect as – domainmsa****$
    ~Test settings

    > Fail

    Am I trying to accomplish something it is not intended to do?

    Thank you,
