When using Batch Services with Microsoft Office 365 applications, you must perform the following steps to configure the batch server.

  1. Log on with an account that has administrator privileges, and then open a command prompt.

  2. For a 32-bit Microsoft Office 365 installation, type mmc comexp.msc /32 in the command prompt window, and then press ENTER.
    -OR-
    For a 64-bit Microsoft Office 365 installation, type dcomcnfg in the command prompt window, and then press ENTER.

    The software opens the Component Services window.

  3. Expand the Component Services node under the Console Root, and then expand the Computers and My Computer nodes.

  4. Expand the DCOM Config node, and then scroll down to the list of Microsoft applications.

  5. Right-click the application to run through Batch Services (for example, Excel), and then select Properties.

    The software opens the Properties dialog box for the selected application.

  6. Select the Identify tab, and specify the user account to use for running the application:

    If batch jobs must be submitted to the batch server while a user is logged into the batch server machine, select The interactive user. This setting forces Batch Services to open Excel as the currently logged-in user.
    -OR-
    If batch jobs must be submitted to the batch server while no one is logged into the batch server machine, select This user, and provide the appropriate user name and password credentials. This setting forces Batch Services to open Excel as the specified user.

  7. Click OK.

  8. Repeat steps 5-7 for any additional Office 365 applications using Batch Services, such as Access or Word.

  9. When finished, reboot the batch server machine.
