Event log access rights on Windows 2003

Discussion in 'Server Security' started by Crusty Applesniffer, Jun 25, 2004.

  1. Hello,

    I have a COM object which allows an asp page reading a user defined event
    log (the account used to access the event log is the connected user's one.)

    When I store the page on IIS on a W2000 server, I can use it whathever user
    account I use.
    But if I store the page on IIS on w Windows 2003 server I get on error
    (Access denied) when I open the asp page with a user that does not belong to
    Domain Admins group.

    I want to know if there is a difference (in a security point of view)
    between IIS on Windows 2003 and IIS on Windows 2000.

    Thank you.

    Yes, there is a great deal of difference between IIS 5 and 6
    in this regard. You might find advantage in examining some
    of the upgrade docs for IIS to see how the backend process
    model was rearchitected and is instanced in new accounts.
