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