    Default Changing Mezzmo user


    I am currently evaluating Mezzmo. I am running Mezzmo on a Windows Server 2008r2. It was originally installed using a domain admin account, and when I realized the settings were user specific, I wanted to change the user account under which Mezzmo runs. I created a local user, made the needed media settings again, and set the service to run under the specific local account(which does not seem to make a difference?).

    I got the the needed libraries, and settings set up, but when i started the service, the result was that my client (Playstation) saw only the Mezzmo default libraries, not the ones i set up. I found out that it did create the default databases and configuration files on the not-anymore-existing profile-path C:\Users\Domain Admin Account\AppData\Local\Conceiva\Mezzmo. This obviously means Mezzmo is not using any settings made with the local account, but still tries to use the non-existing old profile-path when I start the service. I found that the same profile-path can be found on a file C:\ProgramData\Conceiva\Mezzmo\MezzmoServices.txt, but changing the path here did not make a difference after restarting the service.

    How can I change the account from which Mezzmo takes its settings?

    I assume you are running the current version of Mezzmo (v2.7.1.0). If not, please download and install the current version.

    If no better, it's best we see a set of logs when when you are using the non-admin account. Log into your computer using your non-admin account and run Mezzmo. Go to the Media Server Setting dialog and change the name of your Mezzmo server to (say) "Mezzmo Local User" so it is easy to recognize on you PS3. Turn on logging (see and restart your Mezzmo server. Using your PS3, connect to "Mezzmo Local User" and browse some folders/playlists. When it lists the wrong Mezzmo server content (as you mention in your post), stop your Mezzmo server and exit Mezzmo. Zip up all the logs and email them to us at support [at] conceiva [dot] com.
