Problem Details

We have seen webdav access not possible from Microsoft Windows Server 2008.


If you haven’t know yet, “Open with Windows Explorer” feature is implemented using WebDAV protocol, so it relies on a WebDAV client service (i.e. WebClient). By default, that service is not installed on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2.


Basically, you need to install the “Desktop Experience” feature. This can be done by navigating to Server Manager > Features > Add Feature > Desktop Experience (requires reboot). Then, make sure WebClient service is Started. You can set Startup Type to Automatic.
