How to configure Bitdefender Security for Sharepoint to work with Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1

This issue occurs because the Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 introduces stronger defaults and privilege reduction on some services, such as DCOM, by requiring greater authentication for those service's calls. Bitdefender for MS SharePoint 2003 uses DCOM to connect to its backend processes and by default it doesn't have enough privileges.

To solve this issue, you must make sure that the Bitdefender services have the appropriate permisions to run. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Log in with the Administrator account.
  2. Click the Start button, then click Run, type dcomcnfg, and then click OK.
  3. In the left pane, expand Component Services, then Computers, then My Computer, then DCOM Config.
  4. Right click BDSPConnector service, and then click Properties.
