I been following this doc
I have set it up with anonymous authentication. leaving the IUSR as specific user, this work well in network and via CSA (I added the local IIS_IUSR as well)
Can some one explains how steps 7 and 8 work? (I do not understand when is necessary to change the specific user and when to use Application Identity)
7. In the Actions pane, click Edit to set the security principal under which anonymous users will connect to the site (Do I need to change this)
8. In the Edit Anonymous Authentication Credentials dialog box, select one of the following options:-- Specific user, ( IUSR )-- Application pool identity, if you want IIS processes to run by using the account that is currently specified on the property page for the application pool. By default, this is the Network Service.
Now, as mentioned by Davidg5700 on this tread Software Distribution using CSA
leaving the system configured this way (anonymous) leaves the directory open to anyone, so I changed the anonymous to basic.
This makes the Software Distribution Task to use the Credentials entered in the preferred server, before I had my core set as the preferred server so the directory and credentials worked just fine) I found that is better to NOT use the core as a preffered server so I'm trying to use one of my domain machines for this.
Following this Doc How to configure a Preferred Package Server
So I created a folder/structure exactly as in my Core (name and directory structure as the source referenced in the distribution package) the UNC works.
Do I need to share this directory?
Which credentials this screen is referring to? It says read credentials necessary to manage nodes to download files from the server, what does this means?
I have tried my admin credentials on this, I can get to the UNC but can not get to the HTTP
Then I shared the directory on the preferred server and granted me access, but still get the same error.
Please If some one can help me with this, I been doing my homework but still can't get it to work, I'm missing something?
