I am running a 2003 AD domain with 2000 and 2003 member servers. Why is it that when I create an internal website on "serverx" using IIS6 and just type http://serverx
the server doesn't ask me to authenticate, but if I type in the FQDN of "serverx" like http://serverx.corporate.domain.com
then it asks me to authenticate? Why do I need this additional authentication if I've already authenticated with the AD when I logged in and how do I get rid of this? Additionally, I am forced to also log in using "domain\username" when I login. This is annoying and unnecessary since I only have one domain. Is there a way to turn this off and default to a certain domain?
