Question about IIS setting/permissin (NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE)


Hello,

I have uploaded a Web app on IIS 6.0 so, when I am trying its URL I get folowing message:


The NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE account is not granted with Modify permission on folder C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\MyStore\. Although this is not an error, it's highly recommended that you configure these permissions.

What kind of change and where in IIS 6.0 should I apply a setting so that I get the permissions?

Thanks.

make sure you propagate the permissions to child objects. Also you can download filemon from sysinternals. It might be named perfmon now, and start capturing right before you try to create the error. Then stop capturing and search for a Deny in the captured logs. It is fairly easy once you use the tool. It will show a deny and what credentials were denied so you can adjust either the permissions or the account being used.

This should be the NTFS permissions on the folder, not in IIS. Using windows explorer browse to the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\MyStore, right click on the folder and select the security tab. Add the Network server with modify permissions or if the network service is allready with some permissions adjust to modify and apply.
