IIS asks for authentication on a Domain Controller

Hi all,
I have IIS installed on a Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller.
Security is not an issue. Everything is installed on VMWare.
When I try to access any web site on the IIS, I get an authentication box. After I enter the credentials, everything works fine.

I enabled anonymous connection to the web site. The IUSR is enabled on AD.
I set NTFS full controll for the IUSR user.
I added the IUSR to the security policies 'Access this computer from the network' and 'Allow log on locally'

But I still can't get rid of the annoying question.

Any suggestions?

I answered myself:

I needed to manualy syncronize the IUSR account's password with the password defined in IIS.
