How-to fix the AppSense Performance Manager website creation

The AppSense Performance Manager controls and optimizes CPU, Memory and Disk I/O to improve system capacity, improve application response times and provide a superior quality of service. During the installation the following error occurred:

 

> Failed to commit property ‘WebDirectoryAccess’
> Failed to set web directory access attribute of directory ‘/StatisticsUploads’
> Filename: \\?\C:\Program Files\AppSense\Performance Manager\Web Site\web.config
Line number: 23
Error: This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"), or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy allowOverride="false".

Wow! That is a lot of error code, let’s see how to fix this.

  1. Open C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config with notepad or any other editing tool.
  2. Replace overrideModeDefault="Deny"  by  overrideModeDefault="Allow"
  3. Run a iisreset within a command prompt or powershell window.
  4. Rerun the installation/configuration of the AppSense Performance Manager.
    Tada, fixed.
