Network user and file store rights

I'm just setting up ZAM 7.5 Inventory for the first time. We have a Novell
network and I have a 2003 server as the Inventory server - enterprise
installation. The filestore is located on a shared folder on the inventory
server. My question is about setting up additional task and collection
servers. The docs confuse me since they always refer to it as a NETWORK
account but you can only choose a LOCAL account. However, doesn't the user
you choose have to have access rights to the filestore? If you use
Administrator and the password is the same on both the Inventory server and
the additional task and collection servers will that work? Whenever I set up
a new collection server it's status is unavailable in the manager.......

Re: Network user and file store rights

The account needs read/write access to the file store. I believe it tries
to create a file there to check this access.

Also check you have used the .<username> format to tell Windows to use the
local account on the target machine.

Also see my response to the "Re: Remote Collection Servers "Unavailable""
thread.

Re: Network user and file store rights

I think between these 2 threads - mainly your first answer to Remote
collection servers unavailable" you answered my question pretty well.
Thanks
