  • In Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0, objects are created in the configured application pool for the site, and you can configure each application pool to run as a different user. In order for Commerce Server Config objects to work with IIS 6.0, you must add the application pool user name to COM+. By default, the default application pool runs as "Network Service", with the local user account name being SERVICE.
