Changing the Identity of the IWAM/IUSR Account

Last edited: 19 Jul 2005

The information in this article applies to product: e-Work 6.x


  • The Windows IWAM and IUSR identities (username/password) are stored in 3 locations:
    1. Internet Information Server (IIS) metabase
    2. Computer Management (Local Users and Groups)
    3. Component Services
  • If the identity for each is not the same in each location, errors will be generated in the browser and in the Windows event log.

    Possible browser errors:

    HTTP 500 - Internal server error

    Server Application Error

    Possible event log errors:

    Source: W3SVC
    Error: Configured identity is incorrect

    Source: DCOM
    Error: Unable to logon IWAM_ComputerName

    Source: DCOM

Post an example, and we will have a much better idea what the problem is. In about 90% of posts, the problem is one of communication. Examples bridge that gap.
