Hello Experts,

I recently installed Windows Server 2003, which is running IIS 6.  But when I go in the IIS Manager and try to browse a site, I get: "Service Unavailable" in big black letters.

Can someone help me with this?

Thanks,

Do you have any errors showing up in the System or Application event logs?

Hello,

I'm now running in IIS 5.0 isolation mode.
Now I'm getting an error message:

Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=8.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Source Error:

Line 30:                         <add assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=8.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A"/>

Source File: c:\inetpub\wwwroot\web_apps\agent_incentive\web.config    Line: 30

Assembly Load Trace: The following information can be helpful to determine why the assembly 'Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=8.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' could not be loaded.

WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].

 I've found the offending log in my web.config file, but I'm not sure how to fix it.  ANd the registry values in the warning message don't exist in the registry.

Thanks!

Hi,
you need the reportViewer assemblies in the GAC. Check the following discussion in how to get it there

Hey Venki,

Thanks for the feedback, that's gotten me one step closer I think.  Although now I'm getting this error message.

Hello,

I figured out the problem, I needed to add the following to my web.config:

  <system.web>
    <authentication mode="Windows" />
    <identity impersonate="true" />
  </system.web>

It's the <Identity impersonate="true" /> that fixed the issue.

Points to Venki for solving my initial problem!  Many thanks to everyone that contributed.

Cheers,
GRCHELPDESK
