VSS Settings problem


I have a VSS source control system and I need to integrate this with Team City. I created a new project in Team City. Then I went ahead to create a VCS root and specified the "Path to srcsafe.ini" something similar to the following

myVSS-server\share\srcsafe.ini" and also specified the username, password and Project and then clicked on Test Connection button. The error which I get is "File does not exist" under the test box "Path to srcsafe.ini"

Am I missing something here? I have double checked my srcsafe.ini file path, username, password and also the Project path and everything seems to be fine.

Could you please check user account the is used to run TeamCity Server service. Does that user have enough rights to access mentioned share?

I seem to be having the same problem (File not found srcsafe.ini). I have double-checked my inputs, and I have changed the log-on account of both TC services. Is there something else that I can verify?

I have added a tip to the form submission error.

What is written on the test connection results?

It simply says, "File does not exist"

The path I gave it was G:\Development\SourceSafe\srcsafe.ini with drive G: mapped to
SERVER-NAME\Data. I have tried this without the drive mapping as well, with results the same.

Under service mode there may not be any drive mappings.
Could you please specify network path there.

Could you please check the folder is accessible:
- login using same account as build server service does
- try opening srcSafe.ini

Does that work?
