"Server Application Unavailable"


All of a sudden, this big scary message showed up ! Application Event Log showed more details like,

aspnet_wp.exe could not be launched because the username and/or password supplied in the processModel section of the config file are invalid.
aspnet_wp.exe could not be started. HRESULT for the failure: 80004005
“…

If you get this error, this link might shed some light on the issue,

In my case, it was much simpler issue, my ASPNET account (Win 2K Server) was locked out ! (dont have a clue how that happened !!)
