Also ensure in these advanced settings that the Identity is set to the Service Account.   Click on the Service account listed in the identity field and then click the "..." button that appears.  Re-enter the service account (ensure to precede the account with the domain name....<domain>\<account>) and its password in the Custom Account field by clicking the SET button.  Click OK to save changes.

3. In IIS manager select the CCS_Web web site under the default web site.  Click the Basic Settings to open that interface.  Click the Connect As button.  Ensure that this is set to "Application user (pass-through authentication).  Click OK to save settings.
