Mapped Drive to Sharepoint/Office 365
Question asked by Ron - August 24, 2016 at 1:31 PM
I've been able to point FileUltimate at a Document Library on Office 365 through a mapped drive. 
I use the following for the location....
rootFolder2.Location = "Path=" & "\\\DavWWWRoot\Site\Folder\123" & "; User Name=" & ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("FileManagerAttachUser") & "; Password=" & ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("FileManagerAttachPassword")
It's been working fine in Visual Studio Dev Environment, but when I deploy it out to IIS I get a communication error and nothing is reported to the fileManager.Failed handler ( AddHandler fileManager.Failed, AddressOf FileManagerFailed)
Do you have any suggestions on the reason for the failure on IIS? What would be blocking it, etc.?

Any thoughts?
It seems like I can get it working any other way.
Do you have any suggestions on debugging the issue on the server?

I just wanted to let you know that I was able to get FileUltimate working with a Document Library out on Office 365 using a UNC path. I had to change the AppPool user in IIS to a local user. I'm amazed at how fast it can handle the files out in the cloud.

Thank You!
