W3SVC event100 errors in WinNT4sbs
I am running an NT4sbs server and have the server set up an internet server. All of the clients go through the server's modem for internet access. Whenever someone is accessing the internet, there is a string of Event100 W3SVC errors in the event log. Here is the error:
The server was unable to logon to the Windows NT account 'IUSR_MESNET01' due to the following error: Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer. The data is the error code.
(same data every time)
I have tracked it down to the 'IUSR_MESNET01' being the anonymous logon name located under the WWW Service properties in the Internet Service manager. I know the name is set up right 'IUSR_' followed by the server name which is 'MESNET01'. I have no actual user name 'IUSR', 'IUSR_MESNET01', or 'Anonymous' set up. I don't know if that is my problem. If so, what rights do I need to give this user, and what name? There is no problem with internet access, that works fine. The errors are just an annoyance. There are so many of them that it makes it hard to sort through the rest of the event log. Any help is greatly appreciated!
thanks in advance
I've had similar errors under different circumstances, but I think your error means the same thing.
Yes, you do need to make sure that that particular user is set up. I would say try using the name that the system is telling you that it is looking for.
As for what rights to give it, having not used that config before, I'm guessing that the user only needs rights to the resources that it is using.
Hope this helps!

I found the solution. The IUSR_MESNET01 account was actually there under the User Manager for Domains. The problem was that the user was not granted access to log on locally. Granting that access fixed the problem and there are no more errors. Thanks for your suggestion.
Glad to hear you found it.
Good thing too, I was all out of ideas on that one.
