setting CCP_SERVICEREGISTRATION_PATH for SOA service registration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc853430(VS.85).aspx says to use
    cluscfg setenvs CCP_SERVICEREGISTRATION_PATH=\\<server>\<share>\<servicename>.config
    to register a SOA service. 
    1. This syntax implies that only one service can be registered, which I find hard to believe.  Is the doc incorrect?
    2. When I run the command, I get this error: Only Administrator could set cluster environment variables
    I am already a member of the Administrators group on the machine.  Is there another permission I need to set for my userid?

  • to answer my own questions.

    1. correct syntax is cluscfg setenvs CCP_SERVICEREGISTRATION_PATH=\\<server>\<share>
    Thus, any service.config files dropped in this share will be picked up.  These are in addition to services defined in the %CCP_HOME%\ServiceRegistration folder.

    2. I should have run powershell as Administrator, by right clicking and choosing run as Administrator.  merely being an administrator is not sufficient.
