BizTalk – File Adapter – File transport does not have read/write priveleges


Recently, I have to investigate error related to BizTalk – File Adapter. The error that was thrown was:

The Messaging Engine failed to add a receive location “{Receive Location Name}” with URL “{RecieveLocationPath}\*.*” to the adapter “FILE”. Reason: “File transport does not have read/write privileges for receive location “{RecieveLocationPath}\”. “.

I think the error was obvious, and these are the steps I’ve performed to investigate:

  1. Checked if path exists (duh!).
  2.  Checked the Share Folder settings and Security Settings (looks ok!)
  3.  Double checked which account is accessing the folder in BizTalk Admin Console. Since there was no account specified in the Authentication Tab, then I assume that this is using the default account of the Host Instance.

BTS-FileAdapter-AuthenticationTab

4. Re(enable) the Receive Location (immediately shutdown)

5. Restart the Host Instance, repeat step 4. (doesn’t work)

6. Re-enter the password of Host Instance Service (using services.msc) and restart and repeat 4 (no use!).

6. Reboot the Server (still doesn’t work).

Hmm, weird huh?

What i did next is to go to Shared Folder Management (in the server where the folder is hosted). This can be access using Run-> mmc -> Add/Remove Snap-In -> Share Folder.

From the menu, go to Open Files.

MMC-ShareFolder

What i see is: there are 2 different service accounts of BizTalk connecting to the same share folder server. Hmm.. So i changed one of the Receive Location to use the same account as the other one and repeat Step 4.  After this step, the receive locations are now green again!.

It looks like BizTalk can’t connect to a Share Folder Server using 2 different accounts.
