leave a comment »

I’ve was setting up today standard FTP (the one with comes with the installation) server on Windows 2012 R2 and after setting up the users and ensuring that we keep them isolated :


we started to get error message as stated in the title of this post.

Home directory of my FTP was = “c:\ftp”

Name of the user “MyUser”

Based on the documentation above setting should try to establish home directory for the user under : “c\ftp\MyUser”. Unfortunately apparently there was something wrong here.

I’ve dig for a while and finally started “ProcessMonitor”. What he show’s me that actually FTP service is looking for home directory under location “c:\ftp\LocalUser\MyUser”. After moving my user folder under “LocalUser” I was able to login without any problems.
