Script Error - Operation is disallowed on this session

MY Domino server version is 6.5.3 for windows/32 and the OS is win2000 server. My agent connects to an LDAP server, looks up an email address and returns with the results.  This LotusScript searches the LDAP Server using Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) and Active Directory Service Interface (ADSI) provider. The program constructs an SQL statement for the search and passes it to the "execute" method of the "ADODB.Connection" class.

The agent runs fine from the Notes client. However, when the agent runs per a schedule it throws the error:
 "Operation is disallowed on this session".

The "Set" line of the following code causes the error:

Sub Initialize
      Dim adoConn As Variant
      Set adoConn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
      adoConn.Provider = "ADSDSOObject"
      adoConn.Open "ADs Provider"
End Sub


suggestions?  thanks in advance

When you run this application manually it runs from your client and also check whether the required software is installed, and  it's always better to have a system dsn in the server...

As I stated in the question, the agent runs flawlessly when initiated from the Notes client. It only throws the error when it runs on a schedule - run by the server. The server can "see" (telnet and ping) the LDAP box.

It is a permissions problem.  The client always allows all operations that are local to teh client, including ActiveX calls, unless locked out by the ECL.  The server normally restricts these.  The person who saved/signed the agent has to be in the servers' Allow Restricted LotusScript setting, on the server doc security tab.

Why?  Because otherwise, I could, say, use an ActiveX object that is outside the security control of the Notes server, and the server has to be told "trust S. White to do such security-risky operations."

Thanks for your response. I re-checked the permissions in the server document, the security tab, "Run unrestricted methods and operations:". The admin id (the signer of the agent according to the agent's properties) is listed in that section as having those priviledges. According to the help bubble for this item, inclusion of  that id should allow it to run agents in all programmable languages and interfaces without restriction.

But I still get the same error.

When you run it manually a agent runs in the client, not at the server, So does all this products which are referenced and the dsn's installed in the server

Partha, i have the Notes client installed on the server (C: instead of D:) and the agent runs fine from that client. Also, the LDAP server has an entry in the Domino server's host file. I believe that I need to install / load some other product(s) on the server that would enable Domino to access the LDAP server - just as the Notes client can. But, I do not know what those services (products) are.

Open the agent using an R6 designer client and look at the agent's properties.  The second tab in this dialog box (with the little key) has a section called "Set Runtime Security".  It sounds like you have it set to "1. Do not allow restricted operations".  I think you will have to bump it to "3. Allow restricted operations with full administrative permissions" for the ADO calls to work.

Try scheduling it to run with the permission level 3.  If that solves your problem, try it on permission level 2 and see if it still functions.  If not, switch it back to 3.
