Thanks for your response.
Since the service is a windows service, I think this is not a programming
issue; the problem should be caused by windows network permission.
I did a simple test and it succeeded.
My test conditions are:
Two computers locate in the same domain;
One domain account "usr_test" can login either of the computers;
The domain account "usr_test" has the permission of reading a log files
However, for your application, I think if both of the two computers has one
same account, same user name and same password, the windows service can
access the folder.
If your computers are not in a domain, but within the same workgroup,
you may set the same Administrator account password on both of the
computers and then make a try.
Considering the cache problem, you'd better disconnect the mapping disk and
recreate it again.
It's also better to restart the service.
If that works, I recommend you create a special account on the two
Assign the account as a login account which owns administrators permission
on the computer that run the service;
Assign the account read permission to the IIS logs folder on the other
Restart the computer that runs the service and login with the new account;
Map the network drive;
Run the service.
I hope above can make the service work. Good luck!
