Shared folder not accessible when running tomcat as a service



I am running tomcat as a service. I have deployed webservice for my application. The web service implementation

needs to access shared folder on remote PC. Using NetUse I have already mapped the network drive for the shared

folder. I am able to open that shared folder using the network drive on windows explorer.

when running tomcat as a service my webservice is not able to access the shared folder. However if I don't run

tomcat as a service and run it from batch file it is able to access the same shared folder.

Is there specific settings to be done for tomcat when it is executed as a service?

It needs to run as someone who has access to the share. By default all services run as some local system account which doesn't have access. You need to change the user the service runs as from the Services screen.

Open Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services. Double click on the Tomcat service. Go to the Log On tab. Select "This account", then fill in your credentials.
