Adding Web Sites to IIS7

I'm moving from XP+Sambar Server+ISAPI+PHP to W2K8+IIS7+FastCGI+PHP.

When I choose to "Add Web Site", I enter the details of the "Content Directory" and I have 2 buttons - "Connect As..." and "Test Settings ..."

If I choose Test Settings (not changed the Connect As... details), I get ...

"The server is configured to use pass-through authentication with a built-in account to access the specified physical path. However, IIS Manager cannot verify whether the built-in account has access. Make sure that the application pool identity has Read access to the physical path. If this server is joined to a domain, and the application pool identity is NetworkService or LocalSystem, verify that <domain>\<computer_name>$ has Read access to the physical path. Then test these settings again."

The "Authentication" (Pass-through authentication (DefaultAppPool:NetworkService) has a green tick, but the "Authorization" has a yellow warning triangle and the above message.

With regard to my setup, there is a folder (D:\Web Sites), which will contain ALL the code related to the development sites for this web server. I've set full rights all local users as well as this server, but I can't get this message to go away.

Any help would be appreciated.

I know next to nothing about Windows security beyond limited XP level (My MSCP was for Windows 95 - anyone remember that?)

Regards,

Richard Quadling.

The warning errror message is normal since IIS can't verify the 'built-in' account (the default app pool identity is Network Service acc) until it is being used or accessed at run-time.

So the warning message will not go away when you are testing, just setup your website and test it by running the website at run-time and ignore the warning in future.
