    Exclamation Enkompass now available?

    Overview - enkompass

    Looks great! Just wish there was an online demo rather than just test licenses...

    Did you try it already? I'm still waiting to get a test licence.

    Well that's very interesting. I'm sure we'll see more information about it during the cPanel conference.

    Howdy,

    Now that I can talk about it openly, I'll get some screen caps up next week. For the end user, the Website Owner Interface looks a lot like the cPanel interface from the *nix side of things.

    After the conference calms down we'll get a demo system in place for folks to take a look at.

    Is the Windows 2008 R2 not supported? I'm getting error regarding FTP Service for IIS7 can only be installed on Windows Server 2008.

    Howdy,

    R2 is *not* supported *yet* for that very reason. It will be supported soon.

    Thanks!

    Default demo's etc

    As a large non ISP enterprise we have shortlisted Enkompass as a possible solution (IIS 6.0 being an issue here). However the download site for a trial does not work (times out) -> GettingStarted < AllDocumentation/EnkompassHelp < TWiki

    Also, does this support COM+ (reg / de-reg), the pain in all our lives ?

    Thanks.

    Default Com+

    Many thanks for responding.

    COM+ is used in many applications for business logic with ASP applications. Therefore when deploying / provisioning a new webspace it is not as simple as just copying over some asp / html files or .NET dll's in a bin directory. COM+ interacts with the registry and forms part of web apps so I am wondering how, if at all, CPanel can deploy COM components as part of a web app to a target host.

    Also, does CPanel / Enkompass require AD and DNS admin priviliages ? What AD requirements does it have (if we were to do a POC could it integrate with the coorporate AD domain Servers). We would not require (initially) for deploy SQL, email etc, just web sites (apache / iis).

    Many thanks for your assistance,

    Jason.

    Howdy,

    Sorry I didn't get back with you before I was working on the conference and recovering from the email overflow afterwords.

    Our API uses WCF, and we use our own interface to make every call from the web interface. Anything we can do, you can do.

    What are you looking to use com+ for?

    Each application pool is run as a user, if you want that user to interact with the registry, you'd just need to make sure that user has the permissions to do so.

    We do require AD, and MSDNS but we keep our work in it's own OU, so you could use the corporate AD server, and we wouldn't get into anything else.

    I've had to remove it from our own AD server more than a few times. It's never caused any problems, just something that shouldn't be there.

    We use IIS only. As for mail, and database servers can be added later on we do not require any of them at install time. If you want to get system messages from the server, you'll need to provide a SMTP account somewhere.

    Default Com+

    Sorry, I don't think it is clear.

    COM+ components are dll's, they need registering on a web server. A client will not have access directly to a windows server so what ever system is used to deploy the application also needs to register com objects itself, or allow a script to be run to register them.. This is really done via the GAC now, so gacutil /i needs to be run to register a dll.

    Does this make sense ? ie does CPanel support registration of objects in the GAC / deployment of COM components.

    Thanks,

    Jason.

    Howdy,

    We have no support for managing the GAC from within Enkompass. You can use .NET to call what ever dll's you'd like. But gacutil would have to managed by the administrator of the system.

    Thanks!
