I had SolidCP 1.2.1 working on my local machine for a while. Then suddenly yesterday I started getting a “HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.” error. I tried to no avail a whole number of ways to fix it. Finally, I decided to uninstall and delete everything and reinstall with the latest version (v1.4.1) on my Windows 7 Machine. Installation was successful after a few failed attempts. I go to access the site, same error. I am at a complete loss…
The Event Viewer has three items:
- WARNING (5021): The identity of application pool SolidCP Server Pool is invalid. The user name or password that is specified for the identity may be incorrect, or the user may not have batch logon rights. If the identity is not corrected, the application pool will be disabled when the application pool receives its first request. If batch logon rights are causing the problem, the identity in the IIS configuration store must be changed after rights have been granted before Windows Process Activation Service (WAS) can retry the logon. If the identity remains invalid after the first request for the application pool is processed, the application pool will be disabled. The data field contains the error number.
- WARNING (5057): Application pool SolidCP Server Pool has been disabled. Windows Process Activation Service (WAS) did not create a worker process to serve the application pool because the application pool identity is invalid.
- ERROR (5059): Application pool SolidCP Server Pool has been disabled. Windows Process Activation Service (WAS) encountered a failure when it started a worker process to serve the application pool.
I checked the SolidCP accounts (Portal, Server, and Enterprise) and they appear to be defined correctly. I also check Local Policies and made sure that IIS_IUSRS was listed in “Log on as batch job”. I don’t know what else to try, and I have no clue why it worked last week and yesterday just decided to stop working.
Does anyone have any clues?
Ok, so I have resolved my problem. For anyone else having the same issue, I am adding this to record my solution. When I have a problem to solve, I am like a dog with a bone, and I will not let it go. So I kept digging…
In the Event Viewer, on the 1st of the three errors (WARNING: 5021), I noticed in the “Details” tab there some more information, specifically the “Binary Data”, which shows a code “80070700”. So I searched for this code as it related to the WAS Event 5021, and it led me to information about the NetLogon service. So I went and opened my Services window and checked, to find that the NetLogon service was not running and it was set to “Manual”. So I started the service manually and attempted to access my websites, and BINGO, they worked! So now I flipped the NetLogon service properties to “Automatic” so that it starts when Windows starts.
I hope that this helps anyone else that has this issue in the future.
I only wish I figured this out before I erased my previous instance that was all set up, I lost all my settings and now have to re-create or import every Server, IIS Website, Database, etc… Not thrilled about having lost all my data…but live and learn.
