ASP.NET in event log
On our main server we are getting the following showing in the event log (applications) about every 30 seconds.
Event type: Error
Event source: ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0
Event category: None
Event ID: 1007
Description: aspnet_wp.exe could not be launched because the username and/or password supplied in the processModel section of the config file are invalid.
In the folder for ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0 I have a machine.config which I edited. There was no username entry in this file. I also have a machine.config.comments which DOES have the username and password field. This is the file I have tried editing including using Administrator, SYSTEM, machine and ASP.net as the username. I have also tried renaming the file to machine.config (obviously backing up the old one first) and I still get the error.
Is this on a DC? This error can be an issue on a DC we had a similar issue a while ago, i moved the app to a member server in the end.
Did you reboot the server after making the changes to the config file?
Has anything changed to the server recently or is this a new appication?
FIX: ASP.NET does not work with the default ASPNET account on a domain controller
Will let you know how I get on - after school today when I can restart it
Followed those instructions and instead of restarting the server I just restarted the IIS service - Worked a treat, no more ASP.net errors in the last 10 minutes (whereas I would have had about 30!)
Once again, THANKS!
Nice one glad it sorted it.
