Impersonation Question - Encrypting Passwords

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Elliot M. Rodriguez, Nov 4, 2003.

  1. I have a web app that uses Crystal Reports 8.5 along with VB.Net.

    When attempting to access reports by a UNC file share path, I was getting
    access denied errors. I solved this problem eventually by running the aspnet
    process as a Domain Admin account (changed the processModel attribute in
    machine.config).

    I tried running the code block using impersonation as the same account, yet
    I continued to get Access Denied errors, even on fileshares with Everyone
    allowed access. It only worked when I provided the exact same account info I
    used for local impersonation as the login account in machine.config. I could
    see the token changing to the correct login account, yet it continued to
    fail. Does this account also require LocalSystem rights?

    My network administrator is not really excited about the idea of a domain
    accounts information posted in plain text for the world to see or try to
    hack into. So my question is - how can I protect this information? What are
    my options? and why didnt impersonation work for me the way I thought it was
    intended to work in the first place?

    Thanks for any light you can shed on this.
