IIS Internal Server 500 while trying to access NetIQ AppManager Operator Web Console

This document (7012142) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


NetIQ AppManager 7.0.x


When logging into the Operator Web Console the user can authenticate to the website but recieves a http error 500. In looking through the IIS logs the user may encounter the following error:
POST /netiq/loginhandler.asp |81|800a0046|Permission_denied:_'CreateObject' 80


The authenticated user must be granted the following NTFS permissions to the /Netiq/ virtual directory on the IIS server:
Read & Execute
List Folder Contents
The folder exists in the /program files/netiq/ directory by default.


The error is caused becuase the user lacks sufficient NTFS permissions to the NetIQ directory. This directory hosts the virtual directory for the NetIQ Operator Webconsole.
