ASP_NET stopped working with HR 80070545
A machine here suddenly (just switched in the last half hour) stopped working.
If you are using Windows 2000 the directory of your app needs to be set for application. I don't have Windows 2000 so I can't tell you exactly how to do this but if you search google you will find it. In Windows XP Pro I had to set the directory where the virtual directory in IIS pointed so that aspnet user had full permissions. It shouldn't have happened that these permissions changed suddenly unless someone changed them on your server without you knowing. If you try to change the permissions through IIS you can run into problems. I've had to delete and move applications and set them up again after trying to fix this in IIS. Better to fix through windows.
running aspnet_iis -i will fix it, though sometimes it comes back later. i still don't know why it changed, though it could be some setting being propogated from the domain controller or something. different machines have it happen at different times.
