    It's an Enterprise CA, in contact with active directory. But web based
    certificate requests fail with the following error reported in Internet
    Explorer (6.0, security set to medium):

    Failed to create 'CertificateAuthority.Request' object.

    When I look in various logs, the only relevant entry I can find
    is this in the Applications Log:

    Source: Active Server Pages
    Category: None
    Event ID: 5

    and then this description

    Error: The Template Persistent Cache initialization failed for
    Application Pool 'DefaultAppPool' because of the following
    error: Could not create a Disk Cache Sub-directory for the
    Application Pool. The data may have additional error codes..

    There are no additional codes. There's plenty of room on the hard
    drive, plenty of room in memory. I looked up the error on MS's site, and
    found only one article about
    it, where they identified the cause as the IIS_WPG group losing
    its permissions on three directories. I checked those
    directories and all permissions were as they should be.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,

    I suggest you post your question in the IIS newsgroups... Probably they can
    help you over there...
