    Thanks for the run through of Azure today – very useful, a great jumpstart.  I was the one with the weird "access control list not in canonical order…" message.  Commenting out the <Sites> section in csdef solved the issue (as per social.msdn.microsoft.com/…/15312fe7-ed22-4903-81a0-41404fabf9f3), wondered if you had any thoughts on the cause (IIS permissions maybe)?

    Hi Andy,

    Glad you got a jumstart on Azure.

    I'd never seen that error before. The article suggests it's to do with Hosted Web Core vs. Full IIS. In HWC you can only have one site – so I can see how the fix worked. However what the underlying cause is – hmmm, a mystery to me. I saw a few bits of advice regarding AppPool identities. I definitely know a good many things have to run in the same AppDomain (I'm sure on your Azure journey you'll come across this – I protected you from 2 of them on the bootcamp with placing some bits of code in the right methods) and I guess it could be to do with this.

    I can't repro the problem though, so I can't give any advice on your particular circumstances. I guess you could try it all out on a virgin dev machine – you know install everyting from the ground up afresh and se if you get it. Then you might get a pointer.

    It was nice to meet you the other day. Sorry I can't offer any more advice. 2 more bootcamps to go, next week.
