"The Federation Service was unable to listen at '/FederationMetadata/2007-06/' for metadata document requests due to an unexpected error. "

I am setting up an ADFS server for the first time for testing purposes. However, I am getting HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable when accessing all ADFS URLs such as /adfs/fs/federationservice.asmx. Upon checking the Event logs, there is an error that says:

The Federation Service was unable to listen at '/FederationMetadata/2007-06/' for metadata document requests due to an unexpected error. 

Additional Data 
%Exception details: 
Access is denied

Does anyone experience the same issue?
