Access Denied Status for Website in IIS

Dear All

Please read the following blog which i have faced and  the solution got for Access Denied Status in  IIS .

Problem: – user was trying to create a Virtual Directory in IIS and getting successfully added but showing status as Access Denied because of which it was not getting browsed

Options Tried :-
          1) In the Directory security tab of virtual directory given access to anonymous user
          2) In the Directory security tab selected digest the windows authentication
          3) Right click virtual directory and used permissions wizard.
          4) Given permission on directory to ASPNET user
          5) Uninstalled and reinstalled IIS on the system

Didin’t got sucess after trying any of the above option.

Solution: – Issue was with drive security permissions , The drive on which the physical directory is present that drive should have following permissions SYSTEM user and CREATOR user should have full control which has resolved the issue.

Your Comments are always welcome

Working with ADMT tool

Dear All

When we need to tranfer multiple PC’s from one Child Domain say A to another child domain say B in same forest. Instead of creating teh User account and computer account again we can use ADMT tool to migrate user acount and computer account from A to B.

Benefit of using ADMT tool is all users settings will also get migrated so when user will log into new Child domain he will not face any issue only he will be sitting in new place but working with old settings.
Even when we use ADMT tool exchange server mailboxes also get transfered. which is also a good feature.

Downlaod ADMT tool from Microsoft site and install it on Source or target Domian controller and foillow the next steps

Here it will show us the no of user / computer accounts migrated.

Thanks
