Known Issues with ASP.Net for Server upgrade - Windows 2000 to 200

We are currently in the process of upgrading our web server from Windows 2000
advanced server to Windows 2003 SP2.
We have few ASP.Net applications built with .NET framework 1.1 running on
the web server.

I am looking for the known issues that I need to go over before we start the
upgrade.

Appreiciate your help.

Thanks

Basically, you shouldn't have any problems.

Things to watch out for :

1. In Windows 2003, you have to specifically enable ASP.NET 1.1.

2. You must keep all your 1.1 apps in separate application pools than 2.0 apps.

If you have an especially sensitive 1.1 app, setup an application pool exclusively
for that app. Otherwise, you can lump all 1.1 apps in the same application pool.

3. While Windows 2000's ASP.NET account is the ASPNET account,
in Windows 2003 Server the ASPNET account is "NT Authority\Netwo rk Service".

If you are not impersonating, that's the account which
needs ACL permissions to all directories.

See this MSDN page for specific info regarding the critical directories:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...1e(VS.71).aspx

....and remember that the "NT Authority\Netwo rk Service" account
must have ACL permissions to mthe whole wwwroot directory structure,
or to any custom directory which you may have configured.

4. Make sure you install the .Net Framework Service Pack 1:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Something good you don't have to worry about :

Windows 2003 comes out-of-the-box with the .Net Framework 1.1 pre-installed.
All you need to do is apply the .Net Framework SP1 and Windows Server SP2.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
