comment Error connecting to MS SQL from one server but not the other
Can you install Mgmt Studio on the new server and use that to connect to the DB? I find it easier to debug connection issues there, rather than inside the app under IIS.

comment How to set permissions for ASP.NET apps to run under IIS6 with Windows Authentication but without being “world-readable”
Thanks, I did this. I'm still not sure it's the only way, though. I made a new folder, stored away from this public share. But, I forgot to give Authenticated Users read access to the new folder, and IIS was still able to serve up all the content just fine. The only difference was the new folder granted permission to the "System" group (the original folder did not). Could the System group have give IIS the ability to read the folder, while still running the apps under the identity of the logged in user?

comment Accessing UNC paths from inside Perl CGI under IIS6
I don't have the required adsutil.vbs mentioned in the Windows IT Pro article, so I can't extract the IUSR password. Someone else mentioned trying to create a separate App Pool running under AD/network credentials, so I'll try that...

comment Accessing UNC paths from inside Perl CGI under IIS6
There are dozens of other ASP.NET and CGI apps running on the server. Changing the user for all of them could be risky. I was hoping for a setting that could be localized to a directory, or something the Perl script could do to "authenticate" for the UNC share.

comment Accessing UNC paths from inside Perl CGI under IIS6
Granting "Everyone" read access on the new fileshare doesn't work. There must be something in IIS that doesn't allow access to UNC paths? Or requires some other kind of authentication or impersonation?

I don't think it does either, but I can't think of any other way to allow Perl CGI access to a UNC dir.
