sharepoint 2007 can't access layouts directory recieving http 500 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Guys I run two Sharepoint 2007 servers in a nlb configuration. One of the servers works just fine the other one can't access _/layouts/images so every page comes up with red x's everywhere.  This problem affects every single web app on the box including central administration. I have turned on the tracelogs in iis 7 however they were not much help. I thought this was a permission problems but it seems that both servers have the same permissions on _layouts/images. If I debug one of the webapps with Fiddler it returns a ton of  http 500 errors. For example, if I copy http://example.company.com/_layouts/images/menudark.gif in the browser I get a 500 error. So I must ask has anyone here seen this before or can provide a method for troubleshooting?
