WWWBatch.ini on a Windows/2008 server
« on: April 02, 2015, 08:24:33 am »
Where is the WWWBatch.ini file saved on Windows/2008 server ?  I have a WntAccessMod command intermittently failing with a 546 error and I need more information.  Any other suggestions would be appreciated.   Just prior to the WntAccessMod I check to see if the Dir Exists.

Since the release of Windows Vista in 2007 the wwwbatch.ini file has been located in the %systemdrive%:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\WinBatch\Settings folder.  This includes Windows 2008 and all subsequent server and client version of Windows.

I continue to work on this 546 error.  I installed WinBatch 2015A.  I‘m now testing on a Windows 7 64 bit computer, the userid I’m using is a local admin.   The program continues to fail in the same location with a 546 error.
wntAccessAdd("%sa_filesrv%","%pathdir%","xxx",303,"Dir:Full",0)
I can see that the folder that I’m targeting does exist, DirExist just prior to wntAccessAdd, and the funny thing is that the operation I requesting does work, but I get an Error 546.  (Captured by IntControl(73,1,@true,0,0) and reported by wberrorarray[5].)  I can’t find the WWWBatch ini  file. I looked in C:\Users\uuu\AppData\Roaming\WinBatch\Settings, the folder is empty!   I compiled and tested the program both 32 bit and 64 bit modes.   Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The wwwbatch.ini is only created if WinBatch or one of the extenders needs to write to it and it is always create in the previously mentioned location (assuming you are using the latest version of the extender.)

The logic of your script looks suspect but it is hard to say much about it since you did not provide a more complete trace.

Also keep in mind that being an admin is not sufficient to perform an admin tasks on Windows 7 with UAC enabled.  Your script must be compiled with either the 'highestAvailable' or 'requiresAdministator' manifest settings.

Below is more of the trace.  You can see the version of the DDL being loaded (Extender loaded: \\itsusmpw01048\SPMT\Bin\wwwnt34i.dll (file version: 39023,0,0,1))

The trace had to be sanitized

The account running the script does not have local admin rights, but the account is not modifying rights on the local server but rather a remote server, where it does have full control.  If you notice in the trace some of the permission modifications are working, the Winbatrch script just randomly cancels.  In fact the account being added in the command that cancelled was inserted.

The trace still looks overly doctored but presumably you mean that it randomly errors because it isn't just cancelling.  The trace shows that the script is doing what you have instructed it to do when it encounters an error.

The 546 error is returned by the extender function when the system reports one of the following three error codes:
  • ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND
  • ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND
  • ERROR_INVALID_NAME

You would need to locate the wwwbatch.ini file to determine which of the three is causing the error.

So either one of those three things must be the case or the underlying Window network API is not setting the correct error code.  Given that the former is the more likely scenario, it is possible that your problem is the result of some very brief intermittent SMB protocol or network transport outage of some kind.   If that seems to be the case,  you might consider trapping the error and then performing a retry after a brief pause.    You could also consider looking at the network packet traffic, if you have the tools at your disposal. The system event log may or may not also provide some insight.
