Can't create WSS Site using Network Service?

  Asked By: Cesar    Date: Apr 03    Category: WSS    Views: 1378

Lately, when I try to extend a site and create a content DB using WSS, if I select "Network Service" as the owner of the application pool it gives me "Server Error in '/_layouts' Application" Runtime Error after I successfully extend the site and try to login for the first time. It does redirect to templatepick.aspx, but that page never shows up. Can anyone help me fix this? I've tried reinstalling WSS to no avail.

By default, Network Service does not have Administrator or Database Creator
authority in SQL Server. It is not the recommended user to own any
SharePoint Application Pool.
