Configure Windows Services

The installer of the Denodo Platform for Windows creates Windows services for some of its modules: Virtual DataPort server, Scheduler server, etc.

By default, new Windows services are configured to run under the predefined “local system user account”.

Change the account under which the Denodo services run, to be the same account used to launch the Denodo Control Center. This user account needs full privileges over the folder and subfolders where Denodo was installed. The reason is that if you launch a Denodo server using the Control Center and later, you launch it as a Windows service, the files created by the Denodo server when launched from the Control Center, may not be accessible.

To configure the services to run with the appropriate user account, follow these steps:

  1. Press the keys Windows logo+R to open the “Run” dialog.
  2. Enter services.msc to open the Window services configuration tool.
  3. Look for a Denodo service (all of them start with word “Denodo”), right-click it and click Properties.
  4. Click the Log on tab.
  5. Select This account, enter the user name of the user that will be used to run the Denodo Control Center and enter its password.
  6. Repeat steps 3 to 6 to configure the other Denodo services to be executed with the same user account.
