Active Server Page Error

Here is the message as reported in the event viewer:

"Event Source:      Active Server Pages
Error: The Template Persistent Cache initialization failed for Application Pool 'DefaultAppPool' because of the following error: Could not create a Disk Cache Sub-directory for the Application Pool."

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling IIS and modifying the permissions ( per Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 332097 ) with no luck.

Thank you,
Mike Larson

If you're running a certificate authority on IIS. You will need to set the manual permissions settings described in http://support.microsoft.com/?id=332097

on the additional directory "%systemroot%\system32\CertSrv"

Okay.  I'm having the same issue.  I've tried the stuff in Q332097, but the messages still won't go away.  Any other ideas, besides removing IIS from the server, which I'll try a little later on.

Thanks,

This answer resides in the fact that the Microsoft’s default set up within IIS uses the "Local Service" account instead of the "Network Service" account located in the “DefaultAppPool” properties as described in their own “Q” Articles.
Here is a summary of the problem and what we did to resolve it.

Problem:
================
Windows 2003 Server- promoted to be a domain controller running IIS started getting the following errors:
            Event Type:   Error
            Event Source:            Active Server Pages
            Event Category:         None
            Event ID:         5
            Date:               x/x/2004
            Time:              7:55:24 AM
            User:               N/A
            Computer:       SERVERNAME
            Description:
           
Error: The Template Persistent Cache initialization failed for Application Pool 'DefaultAppPool' because of the following error: Could not create a Disk Cache Sub-directory for the Application Pool. The data may have additional error codes.

Solution:
===============
We applied Q842493, and Q332097.  In addition, we configured the identity running the default application pool “DefaultAppPool” properties within IIS Manage so that it ran, as one of the identities that we had specifically, ACL’d while following the “Q” article instructions.  (we used “Network Service” account instead of the default “Local Service” account) This appeared to cause the errors above to cease.
