Zone Processors and IIS 7 Discovery with RED IM 5.5.2.1

Follow

Problem

RED IM, version 5.5.2.1, zone processors are unable to properly discovery and manage IIS 7 and later IIS propagation targets when the 5.5.2.1 integration components are installed. Even zone processor hosts that worked with the integration components from version 5.5.2 and earlier worked until the upgrade to the 5.5.2.1 integration components. 

This problems does not affect systems hosting the RED IM management console.

Cause

In version 5.5.2.1, Enterprise Random Password Manager (ERPM) was re-branded RED Identity Management (RED IM). This change introduced a problem for remote zone processors when installing the updated integration components installer where the IIS7 DLLs were not properly registered during install/upgrade.

Resolution

Note, if you are not seeing this behavior or are not managing IIS7 (and later), you do not need to take these steps.

An updated integration components installer will be provided in subsequent releases of RED IM.

There are two possible resolutions:

  1. Run a specific command to register the DLL.
  2. Download and run the updated integration components.

Run a Command

First validate you have correctly installed the IIS7 pre-requisites (IIS7 management interface) and installed the integration components for RED IM 5.5.2.1.

Next on the zone processor host, locate and note the location of LiebSoftIIS7ManagementInterface.dll. In version 5.5.2.1 of the integration components, the default file location is: %programfiles(x86)%\Lieberman\Roulette.

 Assuming all components are at the default locations on drive C, open an administrative command prompt and run the following command:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\regasm.exe /codebase "C:\Program Files (x86)\Lieberman\Roulette\LiebsoftIIS7ManagementInterface.dll"

Repeat the command on every zone processor host where you will also install the integration components.
