Granting DCOM Permissions for Commerce Server Staging

If you will be running Commerce Server Staging projects from your Sitecore site, you will need to grant the application pool user of the Sitecore site permissions on the CReplicationProject COM object. You can grant the permissions at the following location in Component Services: /Computers/My Computer/DCOM Config/{7E95698D-CD3C-4C98-93C7-6510C31F7DDF}, following the instructions in this guide. If you are not using Commerce Server Staging then you do not need to perform this step.

  1. From the Windows Start menu, search for "Component Services", and then click Component Services.

  2. Expand the tree in the left pane until you have expanded DCOM Config.

  3. Right-click the node named {7E95698D-CD3C-4C98-93C7-6510C31F7DDF} and select Properties
    Note: On some Operation Systems, such as Windows 8, the node name may be "CSS Replication Server".

  4. Click on the Security tab in the dialog. In Launch and Activation Permissions, click on Customize, and then click Edit.

  5. Add the user name of the application user of the Sitecore site, and then grant Local Launch and Local Activation permissions. Click OK, and then click OK again to complete setting the permissions.
