IIS 5.0 / Win2k Hangs up when Reading file using Server.FileSystemObject

P: n/a
Status: Unsolved and puzzling

Steps to reproduce the error:

1.- Delete IUSER from server
2.- Reboot server (OS rebuilds IUSR)
3.- Assign IUSR read and execute permission on web folder
and enable propagation
of inheritable permission on child folders.
4.- Read a file using Server.FileSystemObject into the web
folder

Problem symptoms: Web application hangs up (inetpub.exe)
keeping
service from restarting and eventually server processor is
used to 100%. No
event is generated on Application Event Log or System
Event Log.

Restarting isolated process generates irreversible error
message "The server is
currently disabled." Then, the server must be rebooted to
recover web service.

WARNING: Deleting users is problematic when affecting
system related users.
Recreating a deleted user DOES NOT recover formerly
assigned security
permissions.
