  • Question

  • Hi

    i tried to install complete Project Server in MS Server 2008. Ran all the installation under Local admin account, and connect to SQL 2005 Server (rights as dbo, dbcreator, and securityadmin).When i go into CA, and application Management - Create or Extend Web Application.

    Error message come up : Error: Access Denied. Your are currently Sign in as: Domain\username.

    i digged in the forum, but could find the solution. therefore i raise this question again. hopefully someone can help me to solve this puzzle. been days playing around, now i give up.. *_*

    Checked in the IIS Manager: all services Started. there is one showing OfficeServerapplicationPool running as "NetworkServices".

    Appreciate for the help. many thanks

  •  OfficeServerapplicationPool should run on Network Service, do not change that.

    Consider you have installed the application in the local administrator user. Ex: Server name \ administrator. Login into the local admin user, later check the status.
