Why does MMC require my network password to start J2EE engine?


Hello, we recently upgraded our developers from NWDS 04 sp13 to NWDS 04s sp9. Each developer has a local J2E engine on their laptop for local testing.

With NWDS 04 the developer was able to open MMC, right-click on the J2E node and choose start to start the engine. There was no requirement for a password.

Since we've installed 04s, developers must enter their network password before MMC will start the engine.

I have checked the configuration of the Services on a 04 installation and a 04s installation. So far, I can't tell any difference but I'm not sure what all to look for.

If it was just a matter of having to enter the password when starting the engine it wouldn't be a big deal. However, because it requires the network login/password it means the engine gets 'confused' anytime I disconnect from the network (to move laptop from one meeting to another for example) and I have to stop the engine and then start it again. That's at least a 20-40 minute process.

Has anyone experienced this and, if so, do you know how I can get back to the 04 behavior? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
