  • Hi Nanda,


    From your narration, it seems that you are using Office Live product. Is that true?


    Firstly, please check the web site properties in IIS. Under home directory tab, check the application pool value.  and then open that application pool from the application pools (separate node in the IIS tree). Click the identity tab and see who is the pool assigned to. For the sake of testing, you can select "Predefined" and select local service from the drop down. Restart IIS and see if things work out for you. Http 503 error is generated by the IIS and it happens when web server sends data stream back to the web site.

    In addition, please post the exact error information into the forum for further analysis.
