VRS Repository Service starts and stops

After the service VRS Repository Service stops, the error is logged in Windows event is :

"Service cannot be started. System.ServiceModel.AddressAccessDeniedException: HTTP could not register URL http://+:3581/. Your process does not have access rights to this namespace (see for details). ---> System.Net.HttpListenerException: Access is denied"


The reason is the VRS Repository Service needs to listen on port 3581 to communicate with VRS workstation.

But the non-administrator user does not have permission to register this URL http when starting the service.

You need to add a URL reservation for non-administrator user. This will allow the non-admin user to start the service that listens on a specific port.

Please open Command Prompt window as administrator and type the following command.

netsh http add urlacl url=http://+:3581/ user=test

You should see the following result if the command succeeds,:

URL reservation successfully added
