SPSearchJobDefinition - Requested registry access is not allowed

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi   My Sharepoint sever logs a critical error in the event viewer every 5min:   The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Search.Administration.SPSearchJobDefinition (ID 1a440d58-e28d-4e7c-becb-8dcef428bbf7) threw an exception. More information is included below. Requested registry access is not allowed.   I have searched high and low for any answers but to no avail. Everything else on the server seems to be functioning fine after a lot of setup struggles (the server is our TFS server, with reports and sharepoint all on 1 box)   ANY ideas would be helpful and appreciated   Regards   W

Windows 7 64bit Registry access using x86 assembly

Hi guys, I have an assembly that is complied in x86 release mode. The assembly tries to access  a particular registry key in Win7 the key is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion  -> ProductID(tried to read this value) As the assembly is in x86 it tries to look for the key in SysWow64 node HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion -> ProductID(tried to read this value) When i went through the registry i found that the string "ProductID" is missing (!) .. (may be because i have trial version of windows 7 x64)? I just wanted to ask , is there a way to read registry key (not in wow6432node ) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion  -> ProductID  in x86 mode? Im using the following  code RegistryKey regkey = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion", false); //reads in wow6432Node for x86 assembly string strProductID = string.empty; if (((regkey != null))) { // Get key Value of ProductId. strProductID = (string)regkey.GetValue("ProductId"); if ((string.IsNullOrEmpty(strProductID))) { //try reading another path for "ProductID" } } return strProductID ; PS:When i complie the same assembly as "Any Cpu" , the above code returns corr

I'm trying to communicate with an AS/400 FTP Server. As a first try I just execute the WebRequestMethods.Ftp.ListDirectory method, which translates to the NLST FTP command. Doing the same accessing a Microsoft FTP Server or a UNIX FTP Server works fin.

I requested access to use the excel 2005 data mining addin from our IT group and this is the message


I requested access to use the excel 2005 data mining addin from our IT group (specifically being able to connect to ana instance of analysis services and have the addin create models on the server. This is the message my IT group sent me

The 2005 data mining add in requires SSAS administrative privileges to install and operate. Since there is no separate SSAS administrative role outside of sysadmin for the instance, the IT policy is not to grant sysadmin roles to end users.

Can anyone say if this is typical at other organizations?

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

Wrong Account being used to access files - Help - No Impersonation


I run a simple .aspx website on a Windows Server 2008 machine.

There is NO impersonation, and System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name returns NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE, which it the account which the application pool runs. In my web.config, I have <authentication mode="Forms">.


I tried to test the security of the application and server by removing file permissions to the .aspx files. I was greatly worried when the website continued to run without problem (it should not have been able to read the .aspx files).

By turning on file level auditing, I discovered that the .aspx files were being read by the machine$ account (if the machine is called Serv1, then the files would be read by the Serv1$ account, which seems to have access to all files on the local machine).


Is this a security breach or is this behaviour by design ?

Please can somebody assist, as I am worried.

Disallow Direct Access To Files



Here is my dilema, on my site i have a WordPress Audio player (http://wpaudioplayer.com/standalone) that plays my mp3's.

It loads the Mp3's in by javascript...example below:

       AudioPlayer.embed("audioplayer_7", { soundFile: "/Files/Music/[name of file].mp3" });

This file name is clearly visible in the browser source. Not a problem, however this means that any user can legitimately browse to the file directly and download it.

Now i still need the mp3 player (which is flash) to have access to the file but if a user was to try accessing the file directly, they would not be allowed access to it.

I am not sure how to go about this, i am circling the idea of a httphandler but not sure if this is sufficiant to stop the direct access to the file.

Any help would be appreciated

Access SessionState: via App1 to SessionState from App2


Hi .NET'ers,

i'm interested to do the following - i geuss, i have no option to do that:

we have our "mainapplication" on a DB; we are tracking user-login status by switching a bit in the DB in the users data row.

we hvae a second application, the backend, which is the administration tool.

(the applications are put in seperate diretories on HD)

sometimes, we need to block/ban users. in some cases the users are logged in, when we "see them in action".

i'd like to build a button in the backend-application, which logss-out the user from the mainapplication.

for sure: i can access the same DB and switch the bit to "know" he's offline, but this will not kill the session on the mainapplication.

because: if a user is on/offline is also indicated by the session in the IIS.
and as the IIS-session is active, the user may be already banned - but he will not be logged out automatically (and showing something like "you have been logged out because of a ban)

one option would be to call the DB by each page-load to find out, if the user is logged on.

is there any option to implement this?
