Security Update for Win 2003 Server (KB980436) causes access error to secure url via WCF

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF


today in the morning i installed 5-6 security updates including (KB980436) on our production server. During the day we got errors when our application calls a secured web service :

An error occurred while making the HTTP request to https://[MyService]. This could be due to the fact that the server certificate is not configured properly with HTTP.SYS in the HTTPS case. This could also be caused by a mismatch of the security binding between the client and the server.

I had nothing to do because we haven't made any change at our application. Then i remembered the security updates and walked through the update informations. I saw that KB is about :

MS10-049: Vulnerabilities in SChannel could allow remote code execution

I removed this update because its about secure channel, then everything worked fine.

So what should we do ? Who should be informed ?

Linked Server Error 7303 for Access 2003 Database

I am having difficulty creating a linked server to and Access 2003 database on my SQL 2005 server.  Whenever I create a linked server through the either the “New Linked Server” tool in the SQL Management Studio or using the sp_addlinkedserver method, receive and error indicating “Cannot initialize the data source object of the OLE DB provider…(Microsoft SQL Server Error: 7303)”.  Although my ultimate goal is to link to a secure Access 2003 database file, the current MDB file I am trying to link to is “unsecured”.  I have already verified that the SQL Service account has read and write access to the folder containing the MDB file as well as the temp directories on the SQL server (suggestions from other forums).  Is there any SQL Server configuration that I need to modify in order to use the Jet 4.0 linked server provider (Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0)?

Windows Server 2003: Discover Improved System Info, New Kernel, Debugging, Security, and UI APIs


There's a lot to say about Windows Server 2003. First of all, it's the first operating system with built-in .NET Framework support, and it's the first 64-bit OS from Microsoft. But wait, there's more! There are lots of new features and APIs in this version as well. For instance, Windows Server 2003 features Hot Add Memory and a number of other arcane new tidbits. There are new APIs for handling threads, directories, and files, and new features like the low fragmentation heap for managing memory and system information. There's vectored exception handling and new UI APIs as well.OS internals expert Matt Pietrek takes a look at the additions he finds most interesting and useful so you'll have a good place to start when you dive into Windows Server 2003.

Security Briefs: Exploring S4U Kerberos Extensions in Windows Server 2003


Building Web sites that provide services external to the corporate firewall is tricky. Usually it's not desirable to grant corporate domain accounts to external clients, and from a purely practical standpoint Kerberos does not work well over the Internet due to the typical configuration of client-side firewalls.

"[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied error for a sched

Hi Guys, The subject of this question is the error which I am receiving when running a scheduled job also this is an error which we get at a random intervals and the frequency would be once or twice in a month. I have been through several posts and didn't concluded anything out of it. At the time when we receive this error the memory usage of the database was normal with free resources available and also the network was stable without issues. Our Sql database is in cluster mode with named instance. Can anyone share some information on this, I know this is not the right forum with the error message I have posted but am sure some one might have face the same problem when running some ETL jobs. Source and target both are sql server and the error message is generated in the validation phase of the connection manager connecting to target database. SSIS 2005 SP2 64 bit environmentRaju

How to access RAM above 32gb on Windows 2003 Server Standard x64?

My employers went and maxed out their database server for RAM to 64gb from 32gb. It's running SQL Server 2005 x64 on Windows 2003 Server Standard x64. As far as i'm aware of, 32gb is the RAM limit for the OS but does sql server have the ability to see beyond this limit? I'm about to ship the RAM back... Any insights would be greatly appreciated!

Linked Server To MS Access using Jet Returns "unspecified error"

I'm have SQL SERVER 2008 on Win2008 Server. I have several linked servers to Oracle (odbc) and have just created Linked Servers to MS access 2003 databases on network shares. I can 'test connection' and select data from the linked ms access servers using 4 part naming no problem. As soon as I do this, the Oracle db links stop working. I reboot the server, test connection to Oracle dbs , all ok there, run test connection to ms access dbs and receive the following;Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" for linked server "MYAccessLink"".OLE DB provider "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" for linked server "MYAccessLink" returned message "Unspecified error".

Cannot access companyweb from server or client 2003


I have tried a number of different things, none that have worked so far. I am unable to access companyweb from either the sbs 2003 r2 or from clients. I get the "Internet Explorer cannot access the webpage" error. It worked at one time, but we had consultants working on several other things and it quit.

I do not know what specifically changed. RWW works.

Here is nbtstat from the server:

Access is denied error thrown in "Setup Secure Session" activity


Could someone help me with the following issue, please?

System setup:
- Windows 2008 R2 server hosting both MVC2 web application and WCF service for it;
- users connect to the web application which gets all data from the WCF services;
- WCF services are resused by several other applications (WinForms based) which work fine and have never experienced any security related problems;
- MVC2 uses impersonation (<identity impersonate="true"/>) to connect to WCF services, so we have single security boundary for both web and winforms clients (which are out of scope of the problem);
- both MVC2 web application and WCF services share the same ASP.NET v4.0 DefaultAppPool application pool, running under NetworkService identity;
- all users, user PCs and servers belong to the same AD domain, which is a part of global corporate tree;
- all unhandled exceptions are automatically caught by the web application and forwarded to application developers' e-mail box;
- WCF binding setup in web application:

    <binding name="WSHttpBinding_BifrostServices" closeTimeout="00:10:00"
     openTimeout="00:10:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:10:00"
