We have one core server on 9.5 SP1 which I'm trying to get up and running to replace our old box.
When I try to do HII, it tells me I need to configure a preferred server first - fair enough.
If I go to preferred servers, I can put in the credentials of a new user I created and click on test - if I try to test UNC I get 'UNC authentication failed'.
If I try HTTP with no Path I get 'Unable to validate HTTP authentication , the server allows anonymous access'.
I tried adding the new user I created to the \\servername\packages$ folder permissions but it made no difference.
SO... the question is, when it says UNC authentication failed, what is it trying to authenticate TO? Should HTTP be working on a standard core by default or will it need further config?
All the docs I can find just say 'put in credentials and click test' but nothing about giving those credentials any permissions. I'm guessing this should have been set up properly by the engineer who put in our core but it's been missed?
