Missing IUSR account to show up on Windows Server 2008
Posted on 2008-10-02
We have a Windows Server 2008 box running as a secondary domain controller, our primary domain controller is a Windows Server 2003 machine and both the domain and forest functional levels are set to 2003. We have subsequently installed IIS7 for some internal test projects, however when setting up the first site we discovered that the box seemed to be missing both the IUSR and IIS_IUSRS built-in accounts. Obviously we need these accounts to set the permissions correctly for any web applications we choose to setup.
After some investigation, I discovered link text, with an associated JScript file to run to resolve the issue, unfortunately after running the script and rebooting, the IUSR account is still missing. (The IIS_IUSRS account has been restored)
Any ideas on how to resolve this would be much appreciated.
