You install SAP NetWeaver Identity Management 7.2 SP03 on Windows 2008 R2 and you want to run the Virtual Directory Server (VDS) as a Windows Service and not as a local Windows application.
When you select Install service in the VDS GUI (Configuration tab in the properties dialog of the Virtual Directory Server node, then on the General tab of the Server properties window ), there is no reaction of the GUI and the Status field still indicates Not installed.
The installation as Windows service fails because the VDS GUI is not running with the required Windows permissions. To run the GUI with the required permissions, start it as follows:
- On Windows 7/2008 R2, right-click the VDS icon.
- Choose Run as...
- Enter the Administrator user and the user's password.
- Choose OK.
