i am getting problem in file copying from one server to another server domain in ASP.NET.

server name 1 : testserver1

Domain name : test

server name 2 : testserver2

domain name : testnet.

see my code :

SourceFilePath = "\\testserver2\fileslst\Reports\New\" & lblRenameGrid.Text & ".pdf"

DestinationFilePath = Server.MapPath("~/") + Session("ENo") & "\" & lblGrid.Text & ".pdf"

File.Copy(SourceFilePath, DestinationFilePath)


In server , it shows error message as given below:

Microsoft JScript runtime error:


The account used is a computer account. Use your global user account or local user account to access this server.

But, the same will work in localhost

how to solve the above error...?

The account under which IIS is running, is it known across both domains? i.e. Can the account carrying out the copy operation authenticate across domains?
I think therein lies the problem. It works on localhost because you are not jumping across domains and the account copying the file from one location to another is known in both the source and target locations.
