We have two Windows Server 2008 R2 Web Edition servers, both VIRTUAL on VM Ware hosts, and every....single...time we create a new website on the server, add the proper domain users to the web site folder on the hard drive, and publish the website, no matter what, even on the server itself, the website challenges for a userid and password. And to boot, even if you login with proper credentials, it continues to prompt, not accepting the credentials at all.
The ONLY resolution: rebooting the server. This is unacceptable since one of the two servers is a production server.
I'm open to suggestions before, much to the Admins dismay, I start tossing servers out non-existent windows....
