...and my reseponse....
Adding to my previous post,
I meslead you slightly (actually I was misleaf myself!!!)
I'm actually running in win2000 mixed mode, not win2003 native mode, for my
even though my servers are 2k3 - i havent made the jump yet, becuase I'm
still in the middle of a migration
So I cant go the whole way with constrained delegation,
but reading between the lines on the IIS RK Docs (Chap5, pp469) I have
enabled "trust computer for delegation" in the W2K3 computer account
webserver in DSA.MSC
Theres a note below this option says that this will only enable delegation
for services running under Local System.
My web app is running in IIS5 isolation mode, which means it will run under
an IWAM account not the Local System,
Suffice to say, I'm not entirely surprised that this doesnt seem to fix my
At the moment I'm stuck again.
does this mean I'm stuffed?
