2.0: missing aspnet account

Hi guys

I've just noticed I don't have an ASPNET user account running on either my
Workstation or Server (both running .net2.0, workstation has vs2005 pro).

Simple question... should it be there with .net2, and if so how can I create
it!?

Cheers

I should have pointed out that the Workstation is XP Pro and the Server is
Windows 2003, so I'm assuming it's using the "NETWORK SERVICE" account rather
than "ASPNET".

Looking for clarification as to how this all works with vs2005 :)

You are correct. Windows Server 2003 uses the "Network Service" account by
default instead of ASPNET.

Yes Dan,

For windows 2003 which use IIS6, the default asp.net process Model is
application pool model which use the NT AUTHORITY\NETWO RK SERVICE as the
default application pool identity. And there actually exists a group
named machine\IIS_WPG which helps us easily create a asp.net process
identity (just add a custom account into that group) and Network Service
account is in it by default....

#How to configure the process identity for the ASPNET account in ASP.NET
1.1 when you use IIS 5 Isolation mode in IIS 6.0 on Windows Server 2003

Hi I'm running Windows Server 2003 as a Domain Controller (with Active Directory) as a development server. I created an app that uploads graphics but it doesn't have permission.

Hi All, I wish to clone ASPNET account and my web app will impersonate to this account. I don't wish to remove the ASPNET account away because some other applications are utilizing this ASPNET account. The reason behind cloning the ASPNET account is my app utilizing a lot of network resources and remote OLAP database that requires extra permissions. I'll grant this domain account extra permissions to accomplish these tasks.
