Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You install IIS 6.0 and ASP.NET on a member server.
  • You use the Active Directory Installation Wizard (Dcpromo.exe) tool to install Active Directory.
  • You install Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 on the domain controller.
  • You try to log on to a Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 website.
  • You correctly type your user name and password three times.
In this scenario, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:

Error: Server Error in '/' Application.

Access to the path "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\Temporary ASP.NET Files\root\8c91a6b5\649b28ba" is denied.


Note You may encounter similar symptoms when you access the following sites in Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003:
Accessing Backup (http://servername/backup):
Error: Server Error in '/Backup' Application
Accessing Companyweb (http://companyweb):
Error: Server Error in '/'Application
Accessing Monitoring and Reporting (http://servername/monitoring):
Error: Server Error in '/Monitoring' Application

During Installation (configadminvs.aspx):
Access to the path C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\template\admin\1033\app_data is denied.

Cause

This issue occurs  because the Network Service group does not have sufficient permissions to the Temporary ASP.NET Files folder when you install IIS 6.0 and ASP.NET before you install Active Directory. 

Resolution

To resolve this issue, follow the steps for the version of ASP.NET that you are running.  

ASP.NET 1.1

  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. Switch to the Drive:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v1.1.4322 folder. In this folder, Drive is the drive where Windows is installed. To do this, type the following line at the command prompt, and then press Enter:
    cd Drive:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v1.1.4322
  3. Add the appropriate permissions to the Network Service group for the Temporary ASP.NET Files folder. To do this, type the following line, and then press Enter:
    aspnet_regiis -ir
    Note For more information about the difference between the -ir command-line option and the -i command-line option, see ASP.NET IIS Registration Tool (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/k6h9cz8h(vs.71).aspx)  on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) website. 
  4. Type exit, and then press Enter to close the command prompt.

ASP.NET 2.0

  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. Switch to the Drive:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727 folder. In this folder, Drive is the drive where Windows is installed. To do this, type the following line at the command prompt, and then press Enter:
    cd Drive:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727
  3. Add the appropriate permissions to the Network Service group for the Temporary ASP.NET Files folder. To do this, type the following line, and then press Enter:
    aspnet_regiis -ir
    Note For more information about the difference between the -ir command-line option and the -i command-line , see ASP.NET IIS Registration Tool (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/k6h9cz8h(vs.71).aspx)  on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) website.

To prevent this issue from occurring, install Active Directory before you install IIS 6.0 and ASP.NET.
