SMS Management Point Pool Issue

SMS Management Point Pool Issue

SMS Management Point Pool Issue

This is the first time I have installed SMS 2003 on a W2K3 with SP1 already installed.  I have upgraded some of my SMS servers to W2K3 SP1 with little issues.  The install went fine but now I am trying to enable it to be a management point.  The management point install was successfuly as well.  Yet when I test it, I cannot get to mplist or mpcert using a web browswer.  It comes back saying "Service Unavailable".  If I look at IIS, I drill down to the Application pools and the SMS Management Point Pool is stopped.  I can start it but once I attempt to access the mplist or mpcert page, it turns back off.  If I view the System event viewer I see an event 1002 that states:

Application pool 'SMS Management Point Pool' is being automatically disabled due to a series of failures in the process(es) serving that application pool.

It is definitley a permissions issue because if I add the IWAM_<servername> to the local admins group and perform an iisreset, the mplist and mpcert pages work fine.  However, this is not an idea configuration.  Any ideas?

RE: SMS Management Point Pool Issue

I opened a case with Microsoft and they had me run the command below.  After running the command and doing a IISReset, everything went back to normal.  This command resets all permissions back to the default.  Keep that in mind when you run it.

secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /verbose
