I did this a long time ago so don't quote me on this....

You will need to edit the machine.config file located on the server
(haven't got the link, sorry). MS in their ultimate wisdom decided that
you would never need to run this on a Domain Controller which I am
assuming your server is...Be very careful though as it severely
compromises security on your server...

Good luck, as it took us ages to figure this one out and this was about
12 months ago so I have since forgotten exactly what we did...

Subject: [dba-VB] OT: Creating a new asp project in .net

I am trying to set up a new .asp project in .net.  The docs state that
IIS has to be running on the local machine, but they also imply that you
can somehow make this happen running on a server on another machine.  I
have IIS running on my server machine, and am trying to get the project
to understand a directory on that machine as the project directory.  I
am getting an error message that:

"Unable to create directory... blah blah... The unc share
\\C2DbServer\D2DbWeb\ does not exist or you do not have access to it."

It in fact does exist.  One of the docs says that the administrator and
the system have to have full permissions on that dir, so I specifically
went in and set it up such that they did.  Still no joy.

If anyone has done this before, can you pipe up and tell me what I may
be doing wrong.  Again, I want to create an ASP project, using Visual
Studio .net running on my development machine, with the project located
in a directory on my server, and controlled by IIS running on my server.
