SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You use Authorization Manager to open authorization stores of the Microsoft SQL type.
  • The connections between Authorization Manager and the SQL Server databases are broken because of some exception. For example, some network packets drop, the SQL Server times out, or the SQL Server service restarts.
In this scenario, the connections between Authorization Manager and the SQL Server databases cannot be reestablished. Therefore, users and applications cannot access authorization rules that are stored in Authorization Manager.

Note An AzMan API that uses an authorization store returns an ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED error when you try to access authorization rules that are stored in Authorization Manager. For example, this error may be returned when the UpdateCache or Submit methods are invoked on Authorization Manager objects. When the connections between Authorization Manager and the SQL Server databases are broken, the existing API continues to fail. However, the next AzMan API call will be successful when a new connection is established.

CAUSE

After the connections to the SQL Server databases are lost, Authorization Manager reuses the old connections. However, Authorization Manager should make new connections to the SQL Server databases.

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 file information notes
Important Windows Vista hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows Vista" is listed on the Hotfix Request page. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows Vista" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies to" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.
  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers that are in the following table.

    VersionProductSR_LevelService branch
    6.0.600 1 . 22xxxWindows Vista and Windows Server 2008SP1LDR
    6.0.600 2 . 22xxxWindows Vista and Windows Server 2008SP2LDR
  • Service Pack 1 is integrated into the release version of Windows Server 2008. Therefore, RTM milestone files only apply to Windows Vista. RTM milestone files have a 6.0.0000.xxxxx version number.
  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 and for Windows Vista" section. MUM files and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are very important to maintaining the state of the updated component. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
