Scanning to a DFS structure

By Larbakium ·
I am trying to scan a file over to a remote location via DFS (installed on a 2008R2).
DFS is setup with 2 Folders. Folder 1 has a target at level1 pointing to a remote PC using UNC and IP > I can map the network drive using \\IP\DFSshare\Folder1). Folder 2 has another such folders (folder21) where the targets are. UNC with IP. I can map using \\IP\DFSshare\Folder2\Folder21.
All folders have "Everyone" with full control.

Problem comes when I use a Network scanner. I am able to scan to Folder1 (which goes to the remote path) but I can not scan to any location on folder2.

Then network setup on the printer makes sense as I can see the right path on the network trace and I use the logic path that equal the network mapping.

Does anyone has any ideas?

I have set all folders with full access to everyone and the user I am loggin with is the Admin in both DFS server and the remote localtion.
The Folder2 has full permittions as well. As I can not edit those on DFS management console I have done it via Windows.

If it would be file permissions I would not be able to map the network drive.
If it would be Server permissions I would not be able to scan to the Folder 1, which is pointing to the same remote location.

Looks like having this Level2 folder (Folder2) is causing some problem on the way..

Any WAN connection / firewall / AV between scanner and Folder 21?

Have a look at the security policy of the server where folder 21 is located

see if there are access rights that need set.

... I missunderstood you.
I have checked User Right Assignment and Security Options, all seems fine, add a specific account as log on locally disabled sign communication and still does not look ok.Well only from the scanner. It could be that there is incompatability on the scanner side..
