Wordpress cannot write to windows share

We have a configuration (all windows 2012 and IIS 8) with a cluster share setup and all sit econtent located in the share. Application pool idnetity is set to an AD user and pass-through auth is enabled along with the anonymous auth set as the app pool identity.
We're using the fastcgi module and PHP was installed through WPI. We can create a php simple script to write a directory, but Wordpress is not able to. We also tried switching the auth to an administrator which we know has complete access and it didn't work.
Does anyone have any idea? Is there a WP bug where it cannot write to shares?

I think that as far as the ApplicationPool identity used for your wordpress site is an AD account granted to modify on your share, it should work... So can you chek if you have any related entries in the logs:
PHP error log?
Application event log?
HTTPERR.SYS error log?

Sorry, I just realised that this is an issue with Nextgen gallery, not wordpress. Wordpress cna write fine, it's just this gallery plugin. I posted to their forums hoping for an answer.
