    Default Re: Cannot detect network Printer

    The default configuration for ColdFusion on a Windows server is to run
    as a service under the 'localsystem' account. This account, by default,
    has *NO* permissions to any network resources.

    Your choices are:

    To modify the permissions of the localsystem account, but this is not a
    good idea.

    OR

    You could run the ColdFusion service under an existing account that has
    the required permission, still not a great idea, but ok for testing
    purposes.

    OR

    The best practice is to create a domain account specifically for the
    ColdFusion service and give it exactly what permissions your ColdFusion
    applications need and then set the ColdFusion service to run under this
    account in the Windows Services Panel.

    This is done by accessing the properties of the ColdFusion service(s) in
    the Windows Services panel and chaning the 'Log On' tab to run a
    specific account instead of the default 'Local System account'.

    Well as tclarmont said, I thought I was pretty clear.

    Step One: Create a domain account for your ColdFusion Server(s) and make
    sure this account has permissions for the desired network resources.
    This is done by whomever maintains your Window's Active Directory Domain
    Accounts.

    Step Two: Access the Windows Services Panel on the ColdFusion server.
    Locate the ColdFusion service (this can be under several names depending
    on version and flavor or ColdFusion and how it is configured).

    Step Three: Access the properties of the ColdFusion service(s) and then
    click the 'Log On' tab. Under this tab enter the domain, username and
    password for the account created in step one.

    Step Four: Restart the ColdFusion Service.

    If all that is done properly, your ColdFusion server will than the
    desire permissions to new work resources just like any other domain user.
