I am pulling my hair out trying to find why an application pool using Network Service keeps failing with event code 1009. If I add Network Service to the local admins group, it works fine leading me to the assumption that it is a permissions issue some where. However there are no failures recorded in the security log.
Things I have done:
Reviewed and checked all items on KB 812614.
Installed and configured a crash capture using Debugging tools.
Installed and tried to use IISState
The problem I am having is that once I start the application pool and hit the website, w3wp.exe launches but within a second closes with the event id 1009 error message, so it is not running enough debugger to catch it.
If I set the application pool to use Local System it works fine. Of course, that is not the desired action.
Any one have a idea of what I can do to find the permissions problem?
