Can't get IIS Application to run as specific Identity

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Joseph Geretz, Jul 20, 2009.

  1. I have my website set to run in a specific IIS Application. By default the
    application runs as 'Network Service'. Everything is running just fine.

    But I want my application to run with specific credentials. I change the
    application identity to 'jgeretz'. Now, hitting any transaction handler
    (aspx or asmx) results in the following error:

    Service Unavailable

    jgeretz is a user in the Administrators group. What privileges or attributes
    to I need to assign to jgeretz so that this user account can be used as the
    Identity for an IIS Application?

    Thanks very much for your help!

  2. I got it. The user needs to be in the IIS_WPG group.
