running GeoMedia WebMap and Geospatial Server services with non admin user

Hi,

I have to run the GeoMedia WebMap Services (GeoMedia WebMap, Geospatial Server Administrations Console Service, Geospatial Server Capabilities Service, etc) with a local user, which is not in the administrator group.

Which previliges/group this user need to run GeoMedia WebMap? I put the user in the IIS_IUSRS group and add it in the DCOM securety settings. But this should not enought to work with the admin console.

 

Thank you

Florian

Re: running GeoMedia WebMap and Geospatial Server services with non admin user

I don't think I've seen any guidelines for that, but from the top of my head (apart of the DCOM settings, you already mentioned), the Geospatial Server services make use (at least read, but sometimes also write) of some protected disk locations and also registry keys:

  1. %CommonProgramFiles%\Hexagon
  2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Intergraph

Re: running GeoMedia WebMap and Geospatial Server services with non admin user

May be out of date, but used to apply permissions to following keys:

  • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID[read]
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\INTERGRAPH [read]
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\FLEXlm License Manager [read]
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Intergraph [Full control]
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GDO [read]
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MapText, Inc. [read]

And following directories are out of date but might be starting point

Grant Read, List, Read& Execute control to:

  • C:\Intergraph (now c:\program files\common files\hexagon I think)
  • C:\users\public\intergraph

Grant full control to:

  • C:\GWMCache
  • C:\WebMap Publisher Data
  • C:\WebMap Publisher Projects

Plus off course the DCOMCNFG as per the online documentation.

Re: running GeoMedia WebMap and Geospatial Server services with non admin user

It's never to late. :-)

With this settings GeoMedia WebMap, Geospatial Server Capabilities Service, Geospatial Server Quality Monitor Service are running. Geospatial Server Administration Console Service too, but at admin console Website not all functions are available and it is not possible to create a instance. When I see what it is possible to do in admin console webpage, this makes sense that to running the service admin rights are necessary.

 

To get the Services Geospatial Server Capabilities Service and Geospatial Server Quality Monitor Service I had to configure the “Namespace Reservations” with this command:

 

netsh http add urlacl url=http://+:80/MyUri user=DOMAIN\user

 

thank you
