Determining the user running a cmd shell started from a web service

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

So I've got an application which must be accessed via only a single user via command line for licensing reasons. My solution was to make a web service running under that valid user which is called from my other applications which need to use this remote application. Seems simple and straightforward.


The interfacing method between client and server in this web service sends only two parameters, the path to the source file for the remote application to use and the destination to place the result after it is completed and returns a string as a result. The web service creates a new CMD process using ProcessStartInfo generated from the values of the parameters. I'm redirecting the input and output streams of this process so I can get the resulting output from the call to the application to determine success/failure back on the client side, so I have UseShellExecute set to false.


So remember, this web service is running under the account that has license permissions to this application. I confirmed this by adding Environment.UserName to the return string in the method which starts the process executing the command line.


However, when I test this it is acting like this isn't the proper user. I've quintuple checked that I am using the proper user and that the application behaves properly when I make the command li

Develop a Web Service: Up and Running with the SOAP Toolkit for Visual Studio


The new Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) Toolkit for Visual Studio 6.0 provides the infrastructure for developers to build, expose, and consume Web services. With a few exceptions that are outlined in the toolkit, the SOAP Toolkit complies with the SOAP version 1.1 specification. It includes the Remote Object Proxy Engine (ROPE), a Service Description and Code Generation Wizard, and code that provides ASP and ISAPI reference implementations of SOAP listeners. This article describes the tools and the object model of the SOAP Toolkit, and then demonstrates ASP and ISAPI implementations of a functional Web service using this toolkit.

Windows 2000 UI Innovations: Enhance Your User's Experience with New Infotip and Icon Overlay Shell


Windows 2000 includes some helpful new UI features you can customize and implement in your own applications. In this article you'll see how to provide infotips for files, after making the appropriate registry entries. Then create a custom column handler extension, resulting in a new column for the Explorer's Details view. In order to further extend the shell, additional UI goodies will also be examined and implemented including: search handlers, cleanup handlers, folder customizations using property sheet handlers and icon overlays, and context menu shell extensions. All the code samples are rolled up into a handy package which we've named, by tradition, ShellToys.

The service cannot be started. This service has no endpoint defined....But it has!?!

Hi Foks,I'm following this tutorial on how to create RESTful services in WCF:http://www.codemeit.com/wcf/wcf-restful-pox-json-and-soap-coexist.htmlI would like to test the created service using the WCF Default Test Client, but when I run the application (F5) the service does not start and I get this message:"The service cannot be started. This service has no endpoint defined. Please add at least one endpoint for the service in config file and try again."However I do have endpoints defined for this service..I also have two other services running in the same application, which work fine:This is the relevant portion of my app.config:<behaviors>              <serviceBehaviors>                        <behavior name="WCF_Lib_Default.Service1Behavior">                   <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="True"/>                   <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="False" />             &nbs

WCF Service stops after throwing a unhandled exception :no user is logged on.

Hi All,       I have written a WCF service which is hosted as a Managed windows service. I consume this service in a web application. The service is built using a httpBasicBinding and security Mode ="none". I'm now getting the following exception, after which the service stops  "An unhandled exception ('System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception') occurred in CMMonitorService.exe [1812]. Just-In-Time debugging this exception failed with the following error: Debugger could not be started because no user is logged on." I had tried changing the security mode to Transport/Message. with windows credential then I get a access to the path denied error. Can anyone provide hint on what am I missing and what would be the appropriate security mode and client credential to use along with basichttpBinding?

SSMS 2008 - Shows Service Status as Stopped Though Service is started

Hi, I have a SQL Server 2008 - Active/Passive Cluster. The issue I am facing here is that, when I do a Failover from Node A to Node B, All the Cluster Services come online and the SQL Services are running (checked using the SQL Configuration Manager and Services console). However when I open the management studio, The Service status Indicator shows a Red Block mark against the ServerName and the SQL Server Agent. When I try connecting to the server remotely from another server, the status is displayed correctly in the SSMS(i.e the green sign with the arrow) .  This issue happens when I locally login to the server and connect using ssms. I am an Admin on both the boxes and even the service account with which the services run also has admin privileges. Any pointers? Thanks,

User Profile Service account Write to AD Permissions

I followed this guide here (http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010ups.aspx) to provision the UPS service in sharepoint 2010. I found the guide very helpful and informative. Everything is working correctly except for the write back to AD I've followed the steps and have assigned the listed permissions to the UPS service account, however I still get permissiong errors in the FIM GUI Our AD is running in a 2008 environment but is in 2003 mode, so I made sure to add the UPS account to Pre Windows 2000 Compatible access built in group and restart the server so that the new group settings would take affect. Do I need to reprovision the UPS service or something? Or am I missing something completely. (Hopefully the latter lol!) Thanks RKB

Error while invoking wcf service and running its methods

Failed to invoke the service. Possible causes: The service is offline or inaccessible; the client-side configuration does not match the proxy; the existing proxy is invalid. Refer to the stack trace for more detail.

User Profile Service - "The specified user or domain group was not found"

Hi there, I had configured the User Profile Service and all was working well (Syncing with AD etc.). However, something has gone wrong. The services still appear to be running; both Forefront Identity Manager services are running, and the services show as 'Started' in Central Administration. The 'My Profile' and 'My Site' options have disappeared though, and browsing to the My Sites page results in an error (Could not load user profile). To make matters much worse, it seems to have also broken the Central Administration site. If I try and go to 'Manage Service Applications' I get another error (The specified user or domain group was not found). This error seems to come up on around half of the pages on the Central Administration site. Looking up the error (abb6b174-0f71-413a-a27a-41cdc87b66d0) in the logs I find this: 09/06/2010 15:35:45.44  w3wp.exe (0x0868)                        0x06A0 SharePoint Portal Server       User Profiles                  cm6y High     User Profile Application Proxy failed to retrieve partitions from User Profile Application: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileA

Is it possible to show on a site whether a service is running?

I am trying to have a marker show whether or not a particular service within the services.msc is running on a remote server(s). I have a service called Yardi Services on a virtual server.  I want to be able to show on a dashboard I am creating for work, whether this service in running or stopped.  For some reason this service will randomly stop though I have a auto restart on error.  It is really confusing and so I want to be able to know when it stops so I can restart it.       I have not been able to find anything online to support this.  I am assuming that I would need to create a web service or use WMI?  I am new to this stuff and could use some help or direction.  

Web Service Render and User!Language...

Hi Using SSRS 2008/integrated mode I'm using a web service to get the list of parameters and their valid values and another one to Render the reports. In both the User!Language that is passed is "en" while I would like to pass "fr" to be able to get the french labels and values for my parameters and for my reports to be rendered in french. The web services are called from a Windows Form... Any ideas how I could pass the correct language to the web services ? Thanks ! Paul
