Welcome to the extraxi blog...

If you found this page accidentally and don't know what extraxi is about... we specialise in reporting solutions for the Cisco Secure ACS and Funk SBR access control servers (aka AAA servers).

The servers are predominantly used to secure network services such as dial, wireless lan, vpn, firewall and network device management.

Typically these servers just chuck out MBs of raw CSV log data about network activity. What we do is to help collect this data then import and turn it into useable information.

Windows Server 2008 UAC Issues

When aaa-reports! is installed on a Windows Server 2008 system, you may get a message displayed when attempting to launch aaa-reports:

"An unidentified program is attempting to access your computer"
This is caused by User Access Control kicking in - even though you may be logged in as an administrator by default applications you run will not. You can either elevate to admin level on a use-by-use basis or right-click+properties to see aaa-reports! to always "run as administrator".
However, because the RunAAARe.exe is merely a bootstrap, you will need to locate the RunAccess.exe application as well and elevate this also.
Alternatively, you can find instructions at Microsoft Technet to either disable UAC completely, or just disable UAC prompting for members of the local admin group.
