COM+ does not keep http session on Windows 2012, but works fine on Windows 8
Posted on 2013-11-27
I have a Windows COM+ component that makes two calls to a WebService, using a gsoap generated proxy. It needs to make both calls in the same http session.
It works fine, but not if the component runs on Windows 2012 Server under Local Service account.
It works as expected on
- Windows 2012 as the current user
- Windows 8 as both current user and Local Service account
When I run it on Windows Server 2012 as Local Service (or Network Service) account, however, the second call is made in a different http session.
I have checked many times all settings from COM+ installation to IIS configurations (It is a ASP.NET application that calls the COM), comparing them with the working Windows 8 counterpart, and it is all exactly the same. I can´t see any clue of what may be wrong. As far as I´m concerned it looks like that if I run the COM+ as Local Service it is not able to keep a session cookie.
I´m wondering if someone has any clue of what I may be missing here. Is there any significant Windows 2012 x Windows 8 difference that I should look at, maybe on settings or even on the COM+ implementation?
