Server Error in '/EmpowerIDWebService45' Application - SecurityException: The source was not found. Inaccessible logs: Security

You may encounter the following error page if you have installed the EmpowerID SharePoint Web Services and the EmpowerIDSharePoint20XX Application Pool does not have a configured identity with sufficient permissions:

To resolve this issue a SharePoint administrator will need to set the Application Pool identity for the EmpowerIDSharePoint20XX Application Pool on any server where the EmpowerID SharePoint Web Services are installed. The EmpowerIDSharePoint20XX Application Pool identity is configured as NetworkService by default, which does not have sufficient permissions to read and write to the EmpowerID Event Log.

Please see the Federating SharePoint with EmpowerID guide, in the Prerequisitess: section, starting at the step labeled: To set the identity for the EmpowerIDSharePoint20XX application pool on the SharePoint server.

Please feel free to contact us by e-mail at or by phone at (877) 996-4276 (Option 2) if you have any questions or concerns regarding this guide.
