I'm trying to access the UNC to copy a file from the UNC share to another location. The way it is set up it requires an interactive challenge for credentials, and I was told there is no way to change that setup. I was told that if we set up a Secure System Store that we could somehow impersonate a user and have our SSIS package be able to copy the file from the UNC drop location without manual intervention.

However, I can't find out what to do next. I've read up on BDC but it doesn't seem to apply to the situation - but more to the database. Can someone point me to some documentation that might help me?

The SSIS package can interface with SharePoint's webservices and has the capability to run as an identity that can be supplied to the system/content source and execute the copy. You can also do this with a schedule powershell script or console app and supply the credentials.

When I try to run with SSIS I get failures because of the forced challenge I'm hitting. I don't know how to connect the SSIS package to the SSS ID. Just trying to pass credentials isn't working. – Cate Donoghue May 8 '13 at 18:06
