I am an ODBC developer and not a Cold Fusion developer. I need to know what security rights my ODBC .dll will be running under when it is called when used as an ODBC Socket DataSource from Cold Fusion. I am running on W2003 and running CF MX6.1, but would need to know for version 4 and 5 also if it has changed. I know that ASP security is determinded in the Directory Security setup of IIS admin, which is nomally the Internet Guest Account. What is it in Cold Fusion and where is it configured?

You do not use ODBC DSNs in CF MX, like you would in older versions - you just specify the DSN in the CF Admin

In older CF it runs under everyone and possibly the administrator account or so I've heard.

In newer CF (MX and up) I have not seen any permissions needed other than the Internet Guest Account, but that may be dependant on setup.

I am aware in MX I have to make a Data Source from my DSN and can only use the data source. My assumption, is that the rights that my ODBC driver will have is the rights of the user assigned in the Services Panel in Windows to control the ColdFusion startup. (Normally Local System Account). But I need to know for sure.

Yes, I would like someone who knows the answer to verify what securty setting affects the ODBC dll run from Cold Fusion. Not it depends on the setup. Give some examples of different setup sinerios if there is more than one. I don't know Cold Fusion, that is why I am asking the question.

Thanks
