Need help!

I am running all of my itunes music and the xml library from a server - ex. S:\Music (network map). All of the paths in the xml file point to the s:\ drive which is cool. However, slimserver doesn't like mapped drives - it seems. Can a fix be considered? or is there already one out there on the latest version?

thanks!
Randall

It does handle mapped drives now... by the S: nomenclature I assume
you're running on some form of Windows. Are you running Slimserver as a
service? If so, go to the services applet and choose Slimserver >
Properties. It's running as LocalSystem, which doesn't have rights to
your network. Change it to a real user who does have rights.
