comment IIS7.5 - application pool account versus user account - which account needs write permission?
Hasn't this changed quite significantly over the years. We currently configure folder permissions using the faked out app pool name. I.e. IIS AppPool\DefaultAppPool.

+1 Actually in the end it was memory. We dropped Exchange off the server which freed up quite a bit of memory and then stopped all SBS monitoring services which was chewing up the hard drive. Since then we've never had this issue again.

comment Windows DNS - redirect all external requests for same ip
MikeAWood: What if the server had two NICs? Router connected to one NIC, internal network connected to the other, both on different networks? This means the only machine with access to the external network would be the server forcing all desktops to use the server.

comment How might you configure limited access for non-admins to troubleshoot on a production windows server running an ASP.NET application?
Agreed, if this is a production server then giving access to anyone but server admins is just not a good idea. However, the logs are a good start.

Thanks Pauska I appreciate the time. It seems though that Wikipedia is reporting that IE6, or any version of Internet Explorer, on Windows XP won't work due to this being a component of the operating system. After reading some more it looks like this issue is by design in Windows Server 2003 and was only fixed in SP1.

We use Eset NOD32 Antivirus. Since we removed a couple of roles from the server this issue has never come up again so I'm guessing it was memory related, but we can't be sure which is frustrating.
