I have a Windows 2008 R2 server running IIS 7.5. I'd like to set up a virtual directory for my website to allow the download of video files from a file share on a server in another domain. I have a domain username and password that allows me to access this file share. However, when I try to setup the virtual directory in IIS I get the following error message:
HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid. Module: IIS Web Core Notification: BeginRequest Handler: Not yet determined Error Code: 0x8007052e Config Error: Cannot read configuration file Config File: \\?\UNC\z27ar1cfvs004.abc.se\video$\web.config Requested URL: http://localhost:8080/Video Physical Path: \\z27ar1cfvs004.abc.se\video$ Logon Method: Not yet determined Logon User: Not yet determined
Weirdly, I can hit Explore on my virtual directory and IIS will launch Explorer showing me the files.
For my site's authentication settings I have Basic and Windows authentication settings enabled.
Here are the things I've tried unsuccessfully:
I've Googled until my eyes have gone blurry and spent hours trying many recommended suggestions but all to no avail.
How can I solve this problem?
