I am trying to determine which windows user account was used to install GP Web Services......is there a quick and easy method to determine?

GP10 running on SQL2005, IIS7, Windows Server 2008 (32 bit).......

 

Thanks

    FYI - the IT guy pasted the same string I had pasted (including quotes) and was able to connect. He verified that his account was administrator and my account was not. I will use his account to apply the Service Pack....I hope this fixes my econnect issue.........

    It sounds like you are quite close. The only way I can get your error is by entering in that connection string exactly as you have it--with quotes. Could you please try it again, without the " at the beginning and the end?

    I am getting this error when I choose okay after pasting in my active directory connection string:

    Cannot Open the authorization store. The following problem occurred: The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.

    Here's from my config file:

    <add key="AzManConnectionString" value="msldap://SQL:389/CN=DynamicsSecurityService,CN=DynamicsSecurityServicePartition,DC=Microsoft,DC=COM" />

    Here's the string I pasted:

    "msldap://SQL:389/CN=DynamicsSecurityService,CN=DynamicsSecurityServicePartition,DC=Microsoft,DC=COM"

    Couple of notes - I am an external resource - IT assures me I am a local admin on the SQL server (where GP Web Services resides) - I am definitely not a domain admin......

    Hi Bron, thanks for using the Community Forums.

    There is a way, but it is not all that "quick and easy". As an administrator of the machine, perform the following:

    In the "Start>Run" dialog, type "azman.msc", then right click on the left pane's "Authorization Manager" node, and choose "Open Authorization Store...".

    You'll then need to determine the security store's connection...it's in the web.config in the GPWebservices install directory (under Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics). You're looking for a value like this:

     <add key="AzManConnectionString" value="msldap://machinename:389/CN=DynamicsSecurityService,CN=DynamicsSecurityServicePartition,DC=Microsoft,DC=COM"/>

    You will want to choose the top radio button in the "Open Authorization Store" dialog, labeled Active Directory or Active Directory Application Mode, and paste in a subsection of that string.. like the following:

    machinename:389/CN=DynamicsSecurityService,CN=DynamicsSecurityServicePartition,DC=Microsoft,DC=COM

    At this point, click OK. It should connect, and you should see the "DynamicsSecurityService" Azman parition show in the left-side pane. Right click on that node, and choose "Properties". Then go to the "Security" tab. That should list a drop down of roles, and users/groups assigned to that role. In my case, the user who installed GPWebservices is in the "Administrator" role.

    I hope this helps!
