Shared folder not accessible when running tomcat as a service
I am running tomcat as a service. I have deployed webservice for my application. The web service implementation
needs to access shared folder on remote PC. Using NetUse I have already mapped the network drive for the shared
folder. I am able to open that shared folder using the network drive on windows explorer.
when running tomcat as a service my webservice is not able to access the shared folder. However if I don't run
tomcat as a service and run it from batch file it is able to access the same shared folder.
Is there specific settings to be done for tomcat when it is executed as a service?

When you run as a service, it is running as the system user. That mapped drive is most likely specific to the user you are logged in as. So the System user will not see the mapped drive.
