My Application users are getting http 401. error when they try to browser to my application.
My app is a intranet Web Application which uses Windows Authentication. Anonymous authentication and Identity impersonation are disabled. A separate application pool is created and assigned to the website. IIS ApplicationPool\myApplnAppPool is given read & execute permission on the application root folder.
I verified the worker process (w3wp.exe) and it is running under the Application pool identity in the task manager on the server.
When I give Everyone (Everyone Domain group) Access on my websites folder they are able to access the application. However I believe that is not the right practice of giving EveryOne group access on the folder level.
Also e my app creates & updates a application log file (under the application root folder).
Any help on this will be highly appreciated. Thx.
