This is a snip from the error log when autospinstaller bombs out.

I have shortend the app pool account name, as some others have suggested. Can anyone point out where I could be going wrong here?

  • Creating web applications...

- Creating Web App "Portal"

  • Script halted!

It would help to see the portion of the XML that contains the account name in question, perhaps.

Thanks for responding Brian. I decided to blow it all away, and go back to my previous working install script rather than troubleshoot this :(

But thank you for taking the time to read my post
