I am using VSTS 2008 + C# + .Net 3.5 + IIS 6.0 + Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 SP2 + ASP.Net. I am using anynomous authentication + Windows authentication mode in IIS web site, and I map the user identity to mycorp\george in anynomous account and also use mycorp/george to run IIS worker process. I have also added mycorp\george to administrator group of the IIS web server machine. "mycorp" is the (Windows Active Directory) domain name my department is using.
I always got unauthorized error (401) when accessing the web site from another computer using account mycorp\george (but no error when accessing web site from local computer to access web site.) The web site is a share point web site using Share Point Service 3.0.
I have also used IIS authentication and authorization tool to do diagnoistics, here is the tool I am using http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=63AAF167-2138-4231-B6ED-56298044BD3B&displaylang=en
This tool reports similar authentication and authorization issue,
mycorp\george account does not have Access this computer from the network privilege Path:W3SVC/1670937635/ROOT AuthType:Anonymous Server's response: HTTP/1.1 401 Access denied Learn about IIS status codes Path:W3SVC/1670937635/ROOT AuthType:Anonymous
Any ideas what is wrong? I think for administrator account like mycorp\george, the account should have no privilege (authentication and authorization) limitation issues.
Thanks in advance,
