Hi there <BR><BR>When i configure a Web application to run in High (Isolated) protection mode (out-of-process from IIS 5.0 on Win 2000) , i receive the following error message: <BR><BR>User Password/Validation failed.<BR><BR>According to microsoft the reason for this is, the password that is specified for the IWAM account in the metabase is different from the Windows password that is set for the same account in the Local Users and Groups.<BR><BR>I changed the password (using adsutil ) for the same and it works fine for couple of Hrs, but after 2-3 hrs when i tried to create a new site i get the same error message.<BR><BR>Can somebody tell me what is happening here and how to resolve this problem.<BR><BR>Thanks <BR>Vijay<BR>
