Action



Configuring SourceSafe web access integration where the SourceSafe database is located on a different machine than the webserver.


Attempt to connect to this database from Visual Studio using the SourceSafe Internet provider.


 

Result

Error:  "the specified share path cannot be accessed by the SourceSafe web service"

Cause

Kerboros authentication is not supported or functioning properly in this environment.

Resolution



The article below details how to set up web access to another server hosting the SourceSafe database under the topic titled "Setting Up Internet Access on a Different Computer than the Web Service":


How to: Set up Database Access via Visual SourceSafe (Internet) Plug-In

Step 7e advises to "Confirm that Use Kerberos only is checked"


This is the recommended setting in environments that provide Kerberos support.  In environments that do not support this authentication method, possibly because the client machine is not a member of the domain, an alternate authentication method must be used.


Check "Use any authentication" instead.

More Information

Selecting "use any authentication" means the delegation will negotiate using non-Kerberos protocols in environments where Kerberos is not supported.
