Can't render ASP pages on IIS5.1

P: n/a
CJM
I've had a problem over the last few weeks (which may have been caused by
the recent dodgy critical patch from Microsoft Update); in the past few
months I have been developing ASP pages on my home machine with little
problems.

After a months break, I have come back to find a problem - everytime I
called an ASP page I was redirected to the standard 404 page. This was
around the time of the problems I had after that problematic MS Update
patch. To try and fix it, I uninstalled IIS - or at least I tried to... the
m/c crashed half way through. I subsequently managed to complete the
uninstall, and a few days later I re-installed IIS.

Since that time I have a slightly different problem; When I call up an ASP
page I get the following error:

Server Application Error
The server has encountered an error while loading an application during the
processing of your request. Please refer to the event log for more detail
information. Please contact the server administrator for assistance.

In the event log I seem to have two relevent entries:
A DCOM error:
DCOM got error "Overlapped I/O operation is in progress. " and was unable to
logon .\IWAM_CJMXP2 in order to run the server:
{3D14228D-FBE1-11D0-995D-00C04FD919C1}

and a W3SVC warning:
The server failed to load application '/LM/W3SVC/1/ROOT'. The error was
'The server process could not be started because the configured identity is
incorrect. Check the username and password.
Any ideas?

I'm back at work now Aaron, but I will try the solutions suggested when I
get home. Admittedly, I didnt think to check the ASPFAQ site first; my bad.

I'll post back with the results later.

Aaron,

I have tried the following...

From #2226:
IIS reset - no change
Hi/med/lo protection - no change
synciwam.vbs - "Error: 1AD: ActiveX component can't create object"
DCOM Event #10010 - n/a, the preceding DCOM event ID was 10004
Re-create Application - Problem is server-wide;re-created Default Website -
no change.
Reregister oleaut32.dll/asp.dll - no change
Reinstall DTC - no setup file found in system32 dir
W2k SP2 - n/a (Windows XP machine)
CR8 - not installed

KB#297519:
IUSR & IWAM users removed from "Log on as a batch job" & then re-added - no
change

KB#271071:
n/a - this is for Win2k only

KB#257267:
no dtcsetup file found - advice seems to refere to Win2k/NT4

KB#238665:
Seems to be referring to a different problem, but the solution (recreate
application) doesnt work

KB#195956:
Refers to NT4/IIS4

Any further thoughts? Short of rebuilding Windows (which is something I'd
rather not do!), I'm running out of ideas.

Thanks

Another 'symptom' I have noticed which may or may not be relevant is that
there is a problem accessing the Component Service MMC. When I open the MMC
it appears; when I dbl-click on the Component Services tree, it expands to
show a Computers folder, but when I click on the Computers folder the MMC
crashes - ie it disappears.

Hi Chris,

Regarding the problem, you may try to run two script files in the folder
\Inetpub\AdminScripts ( in the order as listed):

adsutil.vbs
synciwam.vbs

This will reset IWAM_MACHINENAME's password. From the error message, this
seems to be the cause of the problem.

If this doesn't help, you may manually delete the IWAM_MACHINENAME account
from your computer, and then reboot your computer. The account will be
recreated automatically.

Luke,

I dont know if you have been following the IIS newsgroup posts, but I cant
run the synciwam.vbs script:

Error: 1AD: ActiveX component can't create object

I tried deleting the IWAM user & rebooting but it doesnt seem to have helped
either.

Hi Chris,

It seems the problem is worse than I imaged. "ActiveX component can't
create object" in synciwam.vbs means some very basic components missed in
your system. I suggest you may reboot in safe mode and try to reinstall
IIS. Will this success?

Luke,

I've already re-installed IIS - granted, I never did it in safe mode.

Do you really think this will make a difference?

Hi Chris,

From your first message, I learn it crashed when you reinstall IIS. This is
why I suggest to reinstall in safe mode. Have you reinstalled it without
any error?

Luke,

I've reinstalled it 4 times with slightly different variations. I tried
uninstalling and re-installing in safe mode (with reboots in between).
Unfortunately, after the re-install - the IIS Admin service was up and
running but there was no WWW service - not listed in the Services list and
the server was not running and would not even serve html pages.

I've uninstalled it again, and will reinstall again (not in safe mode)
tonight, ready for the next stage of the battle. lol

Just a reminder:

Following Luke's advice, I deleted the IWAM user in the hope that it would
be re-created after rebooting. This didnt work, so there is current no IWAM
user at all, which may complicates other efforts to fix this problem.

Luke/WenJun,

Thanks for you attempts to help, but I have given up.

Each unsuccessful attempt at correcting the problem, seems to break the
system further and further, so I have decided to wipe the machine and start
again. It's a big task, but I'm further away from a solution than when I
started.

It's ironic that it was a MS Critical Update that was the original cause of
the problem, but I know I'm not the only victim.

Anyway, thanks for your time & your efforts.

Chris

the password for user Iuser_urmachine on ur local machine isn't
compatible with what IIS has, reset password and use the IIS utility to
reset the password to the same, the same also for IWAM_urmachine user.

thanks

Could be a DCOM permission issue...? maybe the IWAM account no longer has
launch perms...?

Maybe try this (I don't know if it will work, it's just an idea...):

Open Start/Settings/Control Panel/Admin Tools/Component Services

Navigate to Component Services/Computers/My Computer/DCOM Config/

Right click the IIS modules (like maybe the IIS WAMREG admin service and the
IIS admin service) and select Properties.

Select the Security tab, and try setting Launch and Activation Permissions
to Use Default.

Hi, I got the same problem as CJM. I follow the microsft helpboard, bu
it is useless: synciwam -v got the error 1AD.

I think it should be COM+ related problem because I got these tw
issues:

1. can't start "COM+ System Application" service with error code 1067
2. In componet services, when trying to navigate "computers\...", th
MMC container crashes!

but I have no idea how to solve this problem except reinstalling th
windowsxp..
