Accessing Sharepoint 2010 root throught network drive

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

When I try to go to \\sp_domain\ I am presented with 2 network shares which I can't open afe15108-b347-4a9d-ba3a-1426636526d4-query-1  and afe15108-b347-4a9d-ba3a-1426636526d4-query-2.

If I navigate to \\sp_domain\site I get a list of libraries and sub sites as one would expect.

Does any one have any thoughts as to why I am unable to see list of sites and libraries at the root level?

Accessing SharePoint 2010 with WinRM on Claims-based web application


I am trying to connect to sharepoint remotely using powershell. Things work okay when connecting to a windows authentication web application. But when i try connecting to a claims based web application, i get access denied messages. I seem to get access to the SPWeb, but when i try to access properties on the web, it errors.

Domain Group Policy to Map user folder in Sharepoint Library to network drive


This is complicated- and try as I might I can't get it right. I am running SBS 2008 SP2 with WSS 3.0 SP3.

I have my sharepoint site at http://companyweb. I have WebClient and WebPublishing services enabled.

The scenario I am trying for:

I have a document library in Sharepoint called Wellness Boxes. Inside this library each domain user has a folder- these folders are to store personal files. Each folder is configured with permissions via Sharepoint so that only the user and their direct manager has access. When a user enters the library, they only see their own folder.

I am trying to map this situation to network places. I want users to be able to click Start>Computer>Network and see a drive labeled Companyweb. Entering that drive will show them the document library Wellness Boxes, and only their own folder will be visible.

I need to do this at a domain level through Group Policy so it applies to all users and all computers. Drive letters do not matter. Permissions do matter.

Can anyone help me please?

Map SharePoint Document Library as network drive


I'm trying to map a SharePoint document library to a network drive but I'm getting so errors one is


"The drive could not be mapped because no network was found."


and the other is


"The workstation driver is not installed."


I have no clue what is wrong, connecting from another computer to another server works fine, but from this one i can't connect to any sharepoint document library.


Using the view in explorer from the SharePoint site gives me access to the folder without any problems. So I guess something is wrong on this end.


Running Windows XP Pro SP2 and the Webclient service is started.


Can someone please help?
