Remote HSM Server

In case of a remote HSM Server, i.e. if the HSM Server is installed on a separate machine, it is necessary that:

·The HSM Base service runs under the Archive Manager super-user account

·DCOM Rights are reduced

a)The Archive Manager super-user account is an account under which Archive Manager services (MAMfsaHandlerSv, MAMfsaRemoteSV, MAMfsaArchiverSv) run on the Archive Manager server.

On the HSM server, follow these steps:

1.Open Start / Administrative tools / Services and locate the MAM HSM Base Operations service.

2.Right-click it and open its Properties. On the Log On tab check This account option and enter the super-user account with its password. (Super-user account is an account which Archive Manager services (MAMfsaHandlerSv, MAMfsaRemoteSV, MAMfsaArchiverSv) run under.)

Finally click OK.
0-HSM base

b)DCOM Rights has to be reduced in two locations to

·AuthenticationLevel=“None”

·ImpersonationLevel=“Anonymous”

 

and after that the IIS have to be reset.

 

On the HSM Server follow these steps:

1.Open machine.config from:
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\machine.config
In case the 64-bit .NET FrameWork open:
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\machine.config

2.Locate the entry for “processModel” and add:

comAuthenticationLevel="None" comImpersonationLevel="Anonymous"

The entry then looks as follows:

<processModel autoConfig="true" comAuthenticationLevel="None" comImpersonationLevel="Anonymous" /> 

3.Close the config.

4.Now run Component Services (click Start /Settings /Control Panel /Administrative Tools /Component Services).

5.In the Component Services window expand the Component Services tree down to Component Services \Computers \My Computer and then right-click My Computer to open its Properties window.

6.Switch over to the Default permissions tab. Check Enable Distributed COM on this computer. Then in the Default Authentication Level dropdown box select None and in the Default Impersonation Level select Anonymous.
Click Apply, then OK.
0-remote HSM

7.Finally reset IIS.

Troubleshooting: Adobe reader X is not able to open archived PDFs

Problem description:

PDF files changed to shortcuts by Archive Manager are not retrievable by Adobe Reader X. The files could be opened without any obstacle if an older version of Adobe or any other PDF viewer is used.

Solution:

Protected Mode - new security feature of Adobe Reader X - has to be turned off. Protected Mode protects users' applications and data by limiting what malicious files can do and access. It seems it is taking files having the Reparse Point attribute set as a “malicious” file. Protected Mode is activated by default.

If you are having the problem described above, deactivate protected mode manually in Adobe Reader by choosing Edit > Preferences > General tab and unchecking Enable Protected Mode on startup.
