Why won't Project Server 2003 Let me Login using Windows Authentication?

I am adminstering a new Project Server 2003 installation. I have successfully linked up select user groups with selected Active Directory security groups, and am able to access the Project Web Access login page.

However, when I enter my Windows account information (including the domain name), I get an error that says:

You have entered an incorrect user name/password combination. (5002)

I double checked my user account in Project Server and it clearly shows it as an Active account with Windows Authentication selected.

The only way I can get this to work is if I change my auth type to Project Server. I don't want to do that because I have too many users to deal with and the link with AD brings them all in using Windows Auth.

As a side note, it appears the Project Web Access has different pages for Project Server Login vs Windows Auth Login:

http://MyServer/projectserver/lgnps.asp  <<< This one appears to be for Project Server logins
http://MyServer/projectserver/lgnint.asp  <<< This one appears to be for Windows Auth logins

Note that if I click the link on the left bar to login using my Windows account, the page flashes and the address bar still shows the lgnps.asp page and not the other one like I would expect.


What am I doing wrong?
