Hello,

We are getting ready to migrated our intranet site powered by IIS from Windows Server 2000 to Windows Server 2003. While testing a few of the scripted pages I have come across the error of "Disallowed Parent Path" To remedy the problem I have enabled parent paths but the problem persists. What else could be causing this error message?

If your application contains a Web page that contains the #include server-side include directive and uses ".." notation to refer to a parent directory, you will experience this issue when the application is run on IIS 6.0 with the default setting.

To be more specific I have done the

   1. Click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
   2. Double-click your computer name in the left pane, and then double-click Web Sites.
   3. Locate the Web site and directory that houses the ASP application.
   4. Right-click the application site or directory, and then click Properties.
   5. Select Home Directory, and then click Configuration.
   6. Click Options, and then click to select the Enable Parent Paths check box.
   7. Click OK two times.
