I had a working asp.net site under development on IIS6 and Server 2003, and then something changed. I reset IIS and now I am getting the error message
The Local Security Authority cannot be contacted
The IIS logs show the return code as
500 0 2148074244
I have no idea what happened, but there is nothing in any of the logs indicating why. Does anybody have any ideas?
The problem was with the app pool identity. Somehow the service account name lost its domain.
The app pool was running as
app_svcwhen it should have been running as
domain\was added back to the service account name, everything started working again.
