WebDAV Windows 7

Avatar

Level 3

Has anyone successfully set up WebDAV on Windows 7?  I have followed the instructions here: https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/administer/content/webdav-access.html, but after entering the URL for the network location, I am prompted for credentials, but none work.  I try admin and the password and also the user matching the user that has logged into the computer since the documentation for Windows 7 states: "In addition, you need to have a Windows user with the same credentials as the repository user, otherwise you will get permission problems."  Neither set of credentials worked.

 

My registry setting for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\BasicAuthLevel is set to 2 and I have added http://localhost:4502/crx/repository/crx.default to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\AuthForwardServerList to see if that fixed it.

  • It is issue with windows platform not escaping @ properly. File an case with Microsoft.
  • As a workaround
    • can you map directly to node you want to work on. Example http://<host>:<port>/content/dam and upload your files.  OR
    • use other webdav clients like  netdrive (http://www.netdrive.net/) ....   OR
    • Denying permission for user who want to use webdav for the node [1].

I have checked within Adobe if this is a known issue. That is - Win7 and WebDev. 

I will post an update. I also sent this to support.

If your WebDev use case is to upload files from desktop to AEM JCR, take a look here. You can write a Java  tool and servlet.

I use this tool to upload files like JS script files.

I was able to map it to http://<host>:<port>/content/dam successfully.  Thanks.
