Failed to access IIS metabase in ASP.NET

Dec 13, 2011

Here I will explain how to solve the problem “Failed to access IIS metabase ASP.NET” when we try to browse website using


In my machine I tried to access one of the website from IIS at that time I got error like “Failed to access IIS metabase ASP.NET”. I realized that problem because of process model user account (in our case, ASPNET) does not have the correct user rights for the required system files and folders to run the ASP.NET worker process and apparently there is a bug in the ASP.NET install.

To solve this problem follow below steps:
Open visual studio command prompt and type below command and run
aspnet_regiis -ga machinename\ASPNET
After run the above command Reset the IIS and test the application that resolve your issue.

If above command doesn’t resolve your problem then try to run below command in visual studio command prompt

aspnet_regiis -i
Alternatively we can run above command from our windows command prompt also

Go to the Start menu and open Run and enter and click Ok

%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe –I
After that Reset the IIS and test the application that resolves your issue

Happy Coding………
