can't undo security template...
Posted on 2006-03-22
I have a windows 2003 server that I applied a locked down security template to. However, now it seems that when an installer is run it won't let it start the service that it creates. It says 'access denied'.
I went into security config. and analysis and put the LOCAL SERVICE and SERVICE accounts in the 'log on as a service' setting, but it still says access denied. Then I tried importing the 'compatws.inf' template and configuring that, but I still get access denied.
It seems like it's still getting those high security settings even though I've imported another template.
How can I apply new templates or at least engage the compatability one so that I can start the service and install the software?
