If you did not set up account mapping during Batch Services installation, follow the steps provided in this section.

Batch Services requires an account name and password to use when running jobs. The process of determining the account name to use is called account mapping. You can use Batch Manager to enter and modify account-mapping information for your system. An account mapping entry comprises two parts: the user information to match (the “from” user), and whom that user maps to (the “to” user). Account mapping entries allow users submitting a job to assume the environment and permissions of the user to whom they are mapped.

To perform account mapping, the batch server tries to match the job owner with an account mapping entry, using the following order (items are listed on the account mapping dialog box in the order in which they are applied):

  1. The batch server first tries to find an exact match, matching the job owner’s domain or computer name and username with the “from” user in the account mapping entries.

  2. If the batch server cannot find an exact match, the batch server then searches the account mapping entries using the job owner’s domain or computer name, with “*” (meaning any user) as the username.

  3. If no match is found, the batch server then searches the account mapping entries using “*” (meaning any computer or domain) as the domain name, with the job owner’s username.

  4. Finally, if a match still has not been found, the batch server searches with “*” as the domain name and “*” as the username.

Configure Account Mapping

In the Map To Account Domain/Host box listed below, you can give the domain and user name for the person submitting the batch job. For example, to run all batch jobs as a single user, type * for Account Domain/Host and the User.

  1. Click Start > All Programs > Intergraph Smart Batch Services > Intergraph Batch Manager.

  2. Select the computer name in the tree view.

  3. Select Server > Account Mapping.

  4. Type * for the Map From Account Domain/Host and the User.

  5. In the Map To Account Domain Controller box, type the name of the domain controller. The primary domain controller name displays as the default.

  6. In the Map To Account Domain/Host box, select the domain of the Windows user account you want to run jobs as.

  7. In the Map To Account User box, type the user name to use.

  8. Click Add.

  9. Type and confirm the password for the "to account" user name.

  10. Click OK.

Create and Configure a Desktop Folder

You must create a desktop folder and make sure all the designated account mapping users have access to the folder for scheduling translations.

  1. Create a 'Desktop' folder in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile and C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile.

  2. Check the folder permissions to make sure access is available to the account mapping users.
