asp.net & Windows2003

P: n/a

I want asp.net to be able to write to files and restart windows services.
I know that making the username="SYSTEM" in machine.config gives asp.net
admin rights on a
computer in windows 2000.

This does not seem to be working in Windows2003 however.

Does anybody know a workaround? Or why this doesn't work and what can be
done instead to give asp.net admin rights to the computer?

Note: I know right clicking on a folder with give asp.net write permissions,
but i don't want to go that route.

Thanks,
-SJ

Hi,

with Windows 2003 you'd set the identity ASP.NET runs under, from IIS's
Application pool settings.
