LDAP, Web Apps, and App Pools
Posted on 2012-04-11
I have an application that is supposed to set an AD account password. My domain admin gave me an account that has admin access to the domain to do this. Here's the problem:
When I try to use the application, when it tries to actually set the account password, it throws an exception indicating that it doesn't have permission to do this. However, I know the account has admin domain privileges (I've logged in manually to this account and verified this).
I then tried to create a separate app pool and tried to run the web site under this app pool. I configured the app pool to use the domain admin account I was given. When I did this, I couldn't even browse to the site - it keeps saying, "Service Unavailable'.
When I change the app pool credentials back to the default, the web site comes up but then it doesn't work as it keeps saying I don't have permissions to change the account password.
What am I not understanding here? Why will this not work?
