Error when trying to administer Service - Data is accessed from a mounted file system

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Error Message

When attempting to administer a service the following error is returned:

"Error when trying to administer Service. ArcIMS Service 'service name' cannot be created. Check your map file's layers and data source connections"


Data is accessed from a mounted file system

Solution or Workaround

In Windows, data sources should not be referred using mounted file systems, as ArcIMS services do not necessarily have the same permissions as the user logged in the mount.
