cannot access rights.dat in VSS

Hi all

I am new to teamcity and just set up a project and try to use VSS to get all the files. but in "Edit VCS Root" page, when i click"test connection" button, I got the this error message

"Access to file "\\Sharepoint\SourceSafe_Admin\data\rights.dat" denied. Source:SourceSafe
Unable to log in to SourceSafe. Please check login and password.

does anyone can help me to figure it  out?

Thanks a lot

Please check the following:
- TeamCity server is not running under LOCAL_SYSTEM account
- TeamCity server service is running under some domain account
- That account have enough permittions to access SourceSafe network share
- It does not recommended to use mapped network drives to define a path
