Access denied when trying to get to shared services

Access denied when trying to get to shared services

"DO NOT call you SSP the same name as the AppPool you use for the SSP Admin Site.
The SSP actually uses its name to create an AppPool for use under the Office Search site.

If your SSP Admin AppPool is the same name then MOSS sets it to use the timer svc account.

If your hosting then call the SSP Admin AppPool 'Company - SSPAdmin' and the actual SSP 'Company - SSP'. This will stop MOSS clobbering the accounts."
