IIS

2 Apr

Had a problem running custom application (‘GLASOPAC’) on an IIS server.

It gave errors like ‘Access is denied’ – this was traced to an Object instantiation in an ASP file (actually the global.asa file).

The page was trying to create an Object from a DCOM class, but the DCOM class wasn’t given a proper ‘identity’ to run as (i.e. a user).

This was fixed by going into: Start->Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Component Services and finding the GLASOPAC component. Then clicking the ‘Identity’ tab and setting it to an Admin user.
