Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have an old DCOM Server (proxy is probably written in .Net 1.1), which i migrated to W2K8 Server (from 2003 Server).

I found out, that the proxy .exe and the process which it communicates on the server(checked with Process Explorer), is executed with user, which runs a client (i understand that that's an interactive user). However i set up Identity of this DCOM as particular user (This user setting) - but it looks like this option is ignored.

At the same time, the same DCOM on old server correctly executes proxy and the server process with particular user identity (fixed by me - "This user" setting), instead of client user.

Any ideas how to troubleshot this?
