Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password

We are currently migrating from an old Novell network server to a new server. On the old Novell server, we had a virtual directory ("p1") that allowed us to link documents from the Novell server to be viewed on our intranet.
It was years ago but I think we set up impersonation and now I can't remember how we did it.
We are running IIS 6 and now, on every .aspx page that tries to pull files from the new virtual directory, I get the "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password"
Using this string of code: <%= System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name%>
I verified that the user account is "Intranet\IUSR_Intranet"
The .aspx web application has "<identity impersonate="true" />"
I really need some help as I just am not sure where to go from here. None of my .aspx pages work

Have you switched off Anonymous Access on the site itself so that it passes the Windows credentials?

I switched off Anonymous Access and then stopped and restarted IIS but it didn't seem to make a difference.

Would I need to make changes in the machine.config file too? I just don't work with this often enough to know for sure

Please check the permissions for the Application pool identity on the web application, ASPNET (Full permission) account and IIS_WPG sccount and network service.

The application pool identity is "Intranet_pooled" - how do I find out if ASP.NET account is a member?

I have more information on this. The new server is not a windows server per se but a NetApps/CIFS that emulates a server. I am neither a network guru or a server tech. I did not set up the new virtual directory either but I find that I can create as many static links as I want to and they all work.
My .asp pages now give the error "Path not found" and, as stated above, the .aspx pages all give "Logon Failure: Bad username or password"
I have numbers of pages that are no longer working and really need help with this

What exactly is on the Netapp CIFS share?  Is it a share folder..if so you'll need to login to the Netapp and find out a few things.

1.  Does the time on the Netapp match Active Directory..it needs to be within 5 minutes
2.  Can you login using AD credentials.  
3.  You can do a "cifs testdc" to ensure that you're connected to AD

Actually, after a GREAT deal of searching, we found the solution quite by accident. Since the Netapp CIFS server functions as a server, we no longer needed "Identity=true" in the Web.config file.
Removing that line resolved the problem.

This is ok to close
