Unable to start GTHPALMService without administrator rights

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


Regarding the GTHPALMService, there is a need to be able to start this service without using Windows Task and also without administration rights.

"Run as an administrator" option will not work as the user does not have that privilege.

Which windows policies are required to run it, so one can configure the user/server to start the service?


TDM 3.5 and later

You need to have read write permissions on “C:\Grid-Tools\GTHPALMService” folder. 

If you can quickly scan logs and find the following statement:

“URL http://+:8095/. Your process does not have access rights to this namespace (see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=70353 for details).” 

Please run the following command as administrator: 

“netsh http add urlacl url=http://+:8095/ user=<<USER_ID>>”. Replace <<USER_ID>>” with user name whose account will be used to run GTHPALMService service 

 You may verify that the service was properly started by opening http://localhost:8095/ in your web browser.
It should display ALMService Service page which lists wsdl paths and c# and visual basic example.
