No ASPNET user account

Sam
Hi,

I have installed .NET but the ASPNET account, which I need to add to virtual
directories in order to get ASP.NET applications to work, is not on the
computer. I've checked everywhere and it just hasn't been created.

I searched the web and all other instances of this problem seem to have been
solved (or the person has given up on that particular NG) by running
regiis.exe -i from the .NET Framework directory. However, this doesn't work
for me.

I'm running Windows Small Business Server 2003.

Thanks for your help in advance,

Sam

For Windows Server 2003, ASP.NET uses a user account named "NetworkService"
instead of "ASPNET" by default.

How did you check for the ASP.NET acct?
And if not there may try re-installing.

Hi Sam,

Is it running as this account?: NT Authority\NetworkService

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...l/THCMCh20.asp

If not, you might need repair ASP.NET. Try this from the command line in
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322

aspnet_regiis.exe -ua
aspnet_regiis.exe -i -enable
aspnet_regiis.exe -lv

If necessary, you can create a custom account to run ASP.NET:

Many thanks Steve. You have no idea how long I spent looking for something
like that. I thought it may be a different username on SBS but they're
keeping it a closely guarded secret.

Thanks again,

Sam
