Migration to IIS7 from IIS5 asp producing 80004005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • User150235321 posted

    We have just recently completed a migration from 2000 SBS to 2008 server (64bit) (quite a leap).

    Most things have gone relatively smoothly, apart from the migration of the website.

    Bear in mind that I know next to nothing about web coding, and up until about a month ago I had bearly looked at IIS!

    The guy who originally setup the website on the original server is no longer available to help and its up to muggins here to get it all working again!

    I have setup the virtual directories, set up the 32 bit ODBC DSN's for MSACCESS to point to where the appropriate *.mdb files are, set up anonamous athentication, disabled ssl (the pages themselves handle authentication for the site so im told) set up the redirection in IIS7 to point to the correct virtual directory.

     Each of these little hurdles I over came through much research on google etc, but now I seem to have hit a brick wall. When attempting to access the page on the server through IE (just because its giving me more info than browsing externally to the page '500 error' etc...) I get the following error:-

    error '80004005'
    /bottom.asp, line 18

    Line 18 in the script is as follows

    db_ver.open "select * from t000","dsn=cvb_sys"

    The site as far as I know just uses html and asp and I really am struggling to sort it out now so any help I can get would be greatly appriciated!!!!!

     Has your anonymous web account got correct access to the mdb database?

    As far as I can tell yes it does, the database that it is refering to has permissions set for IUSR, NETWORKSERVICE and a whole host of others.

     Basically Im just trying to get the darned thing working so I've added as many permissions I can think of and when its working I will prune them back for security.

     Do the IIS logs give any more details on the error? Normally with a 4005 you will get some description.

    The IIS log (providing im actually looking at the correct log and in the correct place in the log) is not particularly helpful...

    But yes, I too was looking for more information than just the error code, as everything I've googled ususally shows the error with additional information displayed, so I suppose I should know if im looking in the wrong place or not.

     The error I'm getting is shown in IE on the server when browsing to the site via http://localhost
