I am having some trouble with what should be a very simple task.
I have set up IIS 8 on server 2012
If I log in using a domain admin account, or the first admin account that was created when the machine was setup, I can connect to IIS Manager no problem
If I try and connect using a user that I have since created locally on the machine, and added to the local admins group. I can not connect.
Now, here is the extra wierd bit: If I remote in using the new admin account, and try and connect to IIS using the domain or other admin accounts that previously worked (if I remote in using those) i get the same error and I cant connect!
Steps I am using:
- Remote in using the NEW admin account
- Launch IIS (IIS doesnt show local server)
- Connect to server (localhost)
- Type in credentials (ANY account)
the error is: "Could not connect to the specified computer" "Details: Unable to connect to the remote server"
HELP! & Thanks
