So what happens if you don't select “Turn on Impersonation” when installing MPF? Well for one, impersonation won't work. OK, that was a bit obvious, but how do you turn it back on without uninstalling and reinstalling the MPF Engine on that machine?
Here are some steps (From personal experience and not supported or the “official” stance of Microsoft. Disclaimer, Disclaimer, etc.)
- Open the Local Settings for the server (Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Local Security Policy)
- Navigate to User Rights Assignment (Local Policies>User Rights Assignment)
- Add the MPSServiceAccts group to the “Act as part of the operating system“
- Open the Microsoft Provisioning Manager (Start>Programs>Microsoft Provisioning Server>Provisioning Manager)
- Right-Click on Clients (under Microsoft Provisioning Manager>Provisioning Servers) and select Properties
- Set the Impersonation Level to Delegate (Select, click Edit, Select Delegate from the property value drop-down, click ok.)
- Click OK
After doing this, you have effectively enabled Impersonation.
So what's the difference between having Impersonation enabled or not? Post for another day....
