Is the aspnet account called "aspnet" for all non-English versions of Windows and IIS?

Is the aspnet account called "aspnet" for all non-English versions of
Windows and IIS?

Yes, for Windows XP in all languages.

For Windows 2003 Server, the aspnet account is "network service".

Thanks for the response, Juan.

I am actually more confused than when I started, since the "Network
Service" account does not appear in the list of users configured on my
Win2003 Server (ie under Computer Management -Local Users and Groups
-Users). However, "Network Service" does appear in IIS's Application
Pool Identity dialog.

The reason for my post is that I have a web service. I need to deny
access to the "Users" group to enforce that web service users belong
to a group specific to my application. However I have found that if I
do not add the "aspnet" user, the web service will not operate. I need
to perform all configuration from an install script, and it must work
on English and international versions of Windows XP and Windows 2003.
Ideally the "aspnet" user would have a well-known SID, but it does not
appear to have one, hence the need to look up the SID using the
account name.

re:

That's because it's a local account.

re:

You can do it manually, so you must be able to do it programmaticall y.

Manually, if you right-click the directory where your web service resides; select "Properties ";
select the "Security" tab; click the "Add" button; click the "Advanced" button; and, finally,
click the "Find now" button, you'll see the "Network Service" account listed.

Double-click it, and it will be added to the list of accounts which can access
the directory. You must OK your way out of the dialogs, of course.

You can also write in the name after you click the "Add" button
and the Network Service account will be located and added.

Have you tried adding the Network Service account, even if it's not listed ?

Don't forget to give the Network Service account read/write permissions for the temp directory, too.
Webservices require permission to that directory.

"Network Service" and "IIS_WPG" are different accounts.

Thanks Juan,

I have modified my scripts to allow access to both "Network Service"
and ASPNET users, and have tested this on both WinXP and Win2003. My
web services work correctly. I suspect the "Network Service" user is
not called "Network Service" in all languages. This does not matter
since I used the well-known SID to reference this user rather than its
name.

Hello. We have SQL Server Stored Procedures that use the "CURRENT_USER" variable. We have SQL Server database fields that call "user_name()" as a default. That has been fine in the use and storage of user names, in the context of being called from IIS 5 and 6, from ASP 3.0 using ADODB. I'll add that the web applications are using Basic Authentication. So, individual user account names are garnered and stored. That is valuable to us.
