Add Domain User to Local Group

Due to so many links to topics everywhere, and so many repeat, duplicate topics, I am placing this comment in topics I’ve already fixed that I know are linked to a bunch or that I know I have seen a bunch and that I want to ensure aren’t duplicates or see if I can reuse something {this is the case for Enable Dir Browsing and Configure Bits}.

If your web service resides separately from the replication server (distributed implementation), then you need a domain user that the web service can use to access the network. Follow the steps below to assign this user to the local IIS_WPG group.

  1. On the web server, right click My Computer and select Manage.
  2. Expand Local Users and Groups and select Groups.
  3. In the list of groups on the right, right-click IIS_WPG (or IIS_IUSRS, which replaced IIS_WPG in IIS 7) and select Add to Group.

  4. Click the Add button and add the domain user.

  5. Click OK.
  6. Click OK on the Properties screen.
