    RE: Access denied to DMF shared working directory

    Well, using the administrator is a bad solution. So I would not recommend using a regular user as the service account, and most definitely not the administrator.

    Vilmos Kintera is right here. The error you're seeing is due to lack of permissions for the service account.

    Consider the fact that the DMF will run most of the operations server side, and will run in the context of the AOS Service Account. That means the service needs permissions to the folder.

    Just as Vilmos states, the permissions are two-fold. One permission is on the folder itself, on the file system. The second permission is on the Share. Windows will evaluate both, and if just one of them grants permissions, it will not work.

    You are fine to use the local account, but then it is not the service account that needs permissions to the folder and share, but the machine account itself. So given server name MYAOS and domain name MYDOMAIN, the account that needs access would be MYDOMAIN\MYAOS$ (notice the dollar sign after the server name).

    I prefer service accounts, though. :-)

    Consider marking Vilmos answer as correct, mr Setiawan.

    Thanks For All Answer, The problem is solved.

    the shared directory acces denied because the AOS logon is Local Account (Not Have Permission to administrator) only set the logon use administrator and the problem fixed.

    The DIXF service must be running under the AX AOS account. For the drop folder you need to provide security access in 2 places. Remote in to the server, and in File explorer navigate to the local drive/folder that you are sharing. Right click, properties, security tab - provide Full access for the AX AOS account. After that on the Sharing tab, Advanced sharing, Permissions - also provide Full access for the AX AOS account.

    Both are required if you want to be able to write this folder, if you have missed one setting, then that is the cause.

    Also you might want to lift Windows Firewall restrictions for the Domain profile (turn it off), so the AX AOS could talk to the computer.

    An additional tip, maybe you could include the Fully Qualified Domain Name of the server, like \\yourcomputer.yourdomain.com\sharedfolder\

    Hello Crispin, thanks for your answer, I already follow your instruction and I try to create a new folder in the server on DIFX Installed and then share this folder, but the problem still appear "User Access is denied"

    FYI : I just install component Data framework Client,

    Regards
