SiteMap Provider resolution problems in a SharePoint site.

P: 1
I've implemented three sitemap providers for my SharePoint site. They all work but after 24 hours up to 2 weeks of uninterrupted service, I get the error

"The file sitemap.sitemap required by XmlSiteMapProvider does not exist."

It seems to be a permissions problem since I can browse the site when logged on to the server as a local admin. However, I can't browse the site remotely as a user with read-only access to the sharepoint site and get the above error.

To correct the problem, I log on to the server as the system admin and browse the site which comes up. Then I can browse the site from a remote machine as the read-only user.

The site map provider entries in the web.config are:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.         <add name="FunctPgmsMenuProvider"
  2.           type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, 
  3.                 PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
  4.           siteMapFile="FunctPgmsMenu.sitemap"/>
  5.         <add name="ServicesMenuProvider"
  6.           type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, 
  7.                 PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
  8.           siteMapFile="ServicesMenu.sitemap"/>
  9.         <add name="HowDoIMenuProvider"
  10.           type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, 
  11.                 PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
  12.           siteMapFile="HowDoIMenu.sitemap"/>
Thanks in advance for your help.
