Hi Das,

actually, the servlet engine user is needed in order to be able to use the "W2kSecurityManager" for your File System Repository. You will want to use this Security Manager if you want to access security informations from the Windows File System (say permissions).

So for using the W2KPersmission in the portal the J2EE Service must run with this servlet engine user and you also have to configure special user permissions and privileges for this user. Additionally this user must also must have been granted full access to all files on the share you want to integrate.

Hope this clarify things,
