ASP.NET 1.1/ASP.NET 2.0 and IIS5



Any help on this topic is greatly appreciated.

Currently we are running ASP.NET 1.1 in production with over 30+ 1.1
applications. Recently we have written several applications using
ASP.NET 2.0. We are ready to deploy our newly written application but
have run into several issues on our development environment and
confirmed it would occur in our production environment by removing one
of our servers from the farm. We are getting the infamous "Server
Application Unavailable" error. At this point by adding the "ASPNET"
account to the "Operators" tab in IIS Manager we are able to run the
site without any issues. This is very insecure and unwanted. I
understand that 1.1 and 2.0 must be run in separate application pools,
however IIS5 does not support the creation of new application pools as
IIS6 does. Our Engineers are not ready to upgrade the production
servers to IIS6, what can we do in the meantime to get our 2.0
applications deployed and running in IIS5?

Any ideas?

on IIS 5, appdomains are hosted by a seperate application. if you
install 2.0 and 1.0, you will see 2 aspnet worker processes, one for each

you shouldn't need operation permissions.check that you created the eventlog
registery entries. you will have to track down the security setting
