Mongrel_service on Windows Server 2008 R2 /w Run As User

Hello!

I need to run an older Rails App on WIndows Server 2008 R2 with a
different Account then the default Local System.
While the default works, when trying to start with a different User
(even tried with a Domain Admin account), the service will not start
(Error 1053).

That problem doesn’t occur with Windows Server 2003.

Any idea what is required to get it to start with a different user on
Windows Server 2008 R2 ?

Thanks,
Ralf

Can you provide more information about what fails to get executed?

Does that user have access to Ruby and the installed gems? The
database or the directories where the application is installed?

What are the contents of the log files? mongrel_service.log and
fbservice.log.

a simple test will involve using psexec to mimic the user environment
you’re talking and launch mongrel_rails from the command line with the
same parameters you installed it.

mongrel starts fine when started on the command line with the same use.

Please open a GitHub issue for better documentation, I promise will
tackle it :slight_smile:

Now…

ServiceHost.Add() done
ServiceController.RunMode()
CurrentPID: 1688
ParentPID: 624
Error with OpenProcess
GetLastError: 0Der Vorgang wurde erfolgreich beendet.

It is clear that is having problems opening the process.

Can you try out the newer beta?

gem install mongrel_service --pre

And then try to remove and register with the new service.

On the new beta we handle much better parent process detection (or at
least try to be less smart).

just noticed that i didn’t mention that this happens with current stable
and latest beta gem (no difference at all).

i will open a ticket on GitHub asap, thanks alot for having a look at
it!
