Error in tree in MMC IIS

I have a system running Win2k server with two logical disks - c: and d:.

If I create a virtual directory under IIS on disk d: it shows up with a red error symbol in the tree in MMC. This happens for any directory. Virtual directories from drive c: don't do this.

However there is nothing wrong with the virtual directory, it works fantastic, I can see all the files in MMC, I can access the directory from my browser... just this rather annoying red Error symbol.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Rafi

It basically means that the anonymous user account will probably not have access to this directory. Is this possible? Can you check NTFS rights?

Just checking the evnt log. Looks like there might be something there.

The IUSR can read the pages through the browser. Doesn't that mean that the anonymous user has access?

that refers to the index service that is very likely not the reason for the red stop sign

Yes I gathered that, but I thought maybe that it might give a hint.

Solved the problem.

I added Everyone to d:\ with read/execute/list rights and all of a sudden voila!

You were right even though I had already guessed that and played with the rights 100 times before the miraculous recovery.
