  1. On the server that has the folder to which the web server ( other server) will connect , create the share Create a local user ( to avoid domain issues)Give that local user appropriate rights to that share.

Windows 2008 access denied when editing files

clock June 28, 2012 06:41 by author Ashwin Pai

If you are logged on to the Windows 2008 server as an Administrator or with Administrator privileges, UAC kicks in. If you try to edit files such as web.config , login scripts you get “access denied when you try to the save the file.

Windows 2008 now expects Administrators to manually launching notepad.exe from the start menu, right clicking it and choose “Run as Administrator”. & the browse to the folder & open the required file.

For non-Administrators you can simply give full access to the folder in Security & it will work, but Administrators have to jump through hoops,. Go figure.

If you are like me, you have probably set up the file associations to open these files in notepad when you double click on the file. If you are server administrator you probably do this often on multiple servers.

There are many elaborate solutions out there. I solved my problem by doing the following.

  1. Go to Start >>Administrative Tools >> Local security Policy
  2. Go to Local Policies >>Security Options
  3. Towards the bottom , you will see “ User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode”
  4. Double click & change to “ Elevate without prompting”


Note: You are effectively disabling UAC & should be aware of the implications of doing so.

Event ID: 27 While processing a TGS request for the target server krbtgt

clock May 12, 2012 12:59 by author Ashwin Pai

While processing a TGS request for the target server krbtgt XXXXXXXX
did not have a suitable key for generating a Kerberos ticket (the missing key has an ID of 8).
The requested etypes were 18.  The accounts available etypes were 23  -133  -128  3  1.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: KDC
Event Category: None
Event ID: 27

The cause of the event is that the client requests a service ticket with a etype 18 (aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96), which is not supported by Windows Server 2003 but supported by Windows Server 2008 R2. If the Kerberos authentication works properly, you can safely ignore the events. It just informs the clients what etypes it supports.

For more information, please refer to the following articles:

The security principals and the services that use only DES encryption for Kerberos authentication are incompatible with the default settings on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2


Event ID 27 — KDC Encryption Type Configuration

The trick work on both the 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 7. Vista 32-bit and Windows Server 2008 32-bit should also work. However, it is known to crash 64-bit versions of Vista — and you may need to boot in safe mode or to the command line to delete the folder.
