When you install Reporting Server, you see the error message "Error 1609. An error occurred while applying security settings..." The error message may include the text, "IUSR_MachineName is not a valid user or group."
This problem happens when you install Reporting Server on a computer that you renamed after the installation of IIS. The IUSR_MachineName and IWAM_MachineName accounts refer to the old computer name.
To fix the problem, do one of the following:
- Rename the IUSR_MachineName and IWAM_MachineName accounts to use the current computer name.
- Uninstall IIS, and then install IIS again.
