Setting Up New Web Application Issue
I am trying to setup a new web app on my SP 2007 server in a Win2003 domain. I the "Create New Web Application" webpage the random port assigned is 19761. I want to use the site as a main portal so I entered the header as http://portal.gracenet.net:19761. The application pool name is the same. I also made an A record in DNS titled "portal" and provide the ip address of the SP app server. When I press "OK" I get the error "Invalid application pool name" What do I need to do?

Hi, You can't use ":" in the application pool name. check this link: Create or extend Web applications: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262668(office.12).aspx Cheers,Daniel Bugday Web: SharePoint Forum Blog: SharePoint By Bugday

Hi, just enter Portal.gracnet.net for your new application pool
