We recently got a windows 2008 R2 server where we have deployed our asp.net web application.
Framework : v4.0
The application is configured to use application pool identity and the application pool(ASP.NETv4.0) has been setup in integrated mode. I have observed that some process is trying to copy the web.config file from the web application folder to
C:\Windows\temp\<servername>\<application path>\bin\IIS AppPool_ASP.NETv4.0.
For example, if the application path is D:\inetpub\wwwroot\TestApp and the server name is TestServer, then the path for the config file:
The problems are:
1. the application is somehow looking at this path for the web.config file even though we have not configured our application to look at this temp location for web.config.
2. the web.config file is not getting copied to this path. However, the folders "TestServer\D\INETPUB\WWWROOT\TestApp\BIN\IIS AppPool_ASP.NETv4.0" are getting created successfully every time we launch our web application.
I suspect that some access is missing but not able to find out what access.
FYI-I have provided application pool asp.netv4.0 full access to C:\Windows\Temp and my application path as well.

According to your description above, I think you could look into the logfile in your IIS7.5 first.
We can enable this Failed Request Tracing in the IIS by steps below,
You can check log files in C:\inetpub\logs\FailedReqLogFiles, it will give more details why this happens.
In addition, it's also recommended to get help from IIS forum
for this issue, I think Microsoft IIS experts can give precise troubleshooting.
