Permissions of Junction: The current identity (WINPLESK5\\IWAM_plesk(default)) does not have write access

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 11.5 for Windows

Symptoms

The following error message is displayed in browser:

The current identity (WINPLESK5\\IWAM_plesk(default)) does not have write access to 'C:\\Windows\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\v2.0.50727\\Temporary ASP.NET Files'.

Cause

Microsoft KB article explains why this issue can occur.

It says the cause of the issue are missing Modify permissions on the folder " C:\\Windows\\Microsoft.Net\\Framework\\ v2.0.50727\\Temporary ASP.NET Files " for "Network Service" user.

Resolution

Necessary permissions can be added with the commands in cmd.exe:

mkdir "C:\\Windows\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\v2.0.50727\\Temporary ASP.NET Files"

icacls "C:\\Windows\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\v2.0.50727\\Temporary ASP.NET Files" /grant "Network Service":(m)

However if this directory is NTFS Junction, it does not help.To list Junctions in a directory, "dir /aL" command can be used:

dir /aL C:\\Windows\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\v2.0.50727
15/07/2014 02:01 a.m. <JUNCTION> Temporary ASP.NET Files [F:\\Temp\\Microsoft.NET\\v2.0]

So target directory is a Junction pointing to the directory "F:\\Temp\\Microsoft.NET\\v2.0" which should be configured.

Creating the folder F:\\Temp\\Microsoft.NET\\v2.0 with "Modify" permission for "Network Service" user:

mkdir F:\\Temp\\Microsoft.NET\\v2.0

icacls F:\\Temp\\Microsoft.NET\\v2.0 /grant "Network Service":(m)
