How do I fix this error: "The current identity (NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE) does not have write access to "

P: n/a
Hi all. I am using W2K3, .NET2 on a machine running AD and Exchange. I
started getting the message below last week. I googled the error and not
much was returned, but I did find this;
http://forums.asp.net/918725/ShowPost.aspx

I tried both items in the forum and it works for a few hits then it happens
again!

Anyone have the same problem? How do I fix this?

I have changed the ACL to add the NETWORK SERVICE account to the Temp
directory (just now), but I am leary of opening security holes on my box.
Is there an actual problem that will cause my site to keep craping out?

I fixed the problem (thanks to Jim Cheshire of JIMCO Software
(http://www.jimcosoftware.com) ).

The GPO (Default Domain Policy) was overriding the ACL's and NOT including
the NETWORK SERVICE account everytime it did a policy check (or whatever it
does). Once I added the account to the correct directory in the Default
Domain Policy, it was fine.
