I have a WebDAV server (IIs 7.5 with WebDAV installed) that we can write and delete files from but not rename. I've checked the file permissions and they seem fine but I suspect that as WebDAV is also a versioning system, perhaps it is blocking the rename as this may break a version tree?

All other aspects are working fine, i.e. HTML directory browsing and drive mapping via @SSL.

Don't know the answer, but...

Does it work over http?
What does the log say about the attempt?

An update : from the IIS logs (%SystemDrive%\inetpub\logs\LogFiles) I can see the WebDAV MOVE command being attempted, but nothing is logged as to why it cannot complete. I tried executing a folder MOVE as this two failed.

I test from another machine using the UNC path for the folder (to test security) and I can create, delete, rename and move files that way, but not via WebDAV.

Tested internal access and works fine, tested external and not working, so I suspect it's an issue with TMG, the investigation continues ...

Answer : The SSO reverse proxy (Threat Management Gateway) does not support WebDAV MOVE operation. Changed the external facing URL for HTML (browse / read) and provided a new passthrough rule for write access.
