Hi, I hope you can help.

Our current server setup is as follows:
2 webservers behind one load balancer
The websites are on a shared disk in a datacentre (ie, not local to the webservers) but both webservers
can see this disk.

In IIS, we point the directory to //our-disk/sites/mysite

This site is written in PHP but we're running it on IIS. This cannot be changed to run on Apache.

We've created a different application pool in IIS and used this for this website. Whenever we try and
browse to the site using Process Monitor - -
, we get a BAD LOGON message for the httpd.ini file.

I'm sure this is down to permissions. Because the disk has no knowledge of the webservers, the account we
have to browse the disk can't be added to the IIS_WPG group as in your docs.

How would we set up permissions to access this site on the shared disk?

Thanks in advance,

Where is the httpd.ini located?
What is the config you are trying to use?
Is the account you have to browse the disk the same as the account running the app pool with ISAPI_Rewrite?

Anton, thanks for the reply.

The httpd.ini is located on the shared disk.
What do you mean by 'what is the config you're trying to
We have 2 accounts (one for each webserver - they're
identical) that the app pool is running under. We've
created an account on the shared disk that has the same
username and password as the one on the webservers but
still get a BAD LOGON message.

Hope this helps,

The only way to make this working is to ensure that a pool identity and an identity used to access a network disk are exactly the same account.
