WebDAV on a Windows 2003 authenticate problem

Hi all!

I have a problem with configuring a WebDAV folder on my Windows 2003 SP1 server.
Is also runs Exchange 2003 SP1.

I have followed the example described here:
http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/WebDAV-IIS.html
But when I try to open the webfolder using either IE (as in the tutorial) or from a CMD-window (net use * http://maple/WebFolder) I first get to enter a username and password which is followed by “System error 5 has occurred – Access is denied”. Regardless of what user/pass I enter, the result is the same.

I have also tried to disable all authentication methods but anonymous and allowed IUSR_ user full access to the windows folder, but no luck. I get the same behavior from the client.

Anyone got a clue?

1) did you stop and restart the web site and/or iis?

2) the account you are using on an iis box typically needs the logon locally right, do those accounts have log on locally to the box?

3) I would also suggest that you enable the write access on the iis properties.

4) try creating a network share and see if it maps as the user accounts.

Thanks for the link - I did review it . I had seen that same author have some errors in the past about the Windows XP firewall.

Hi! Thanks for your advice.

1) Yes, it is stopped and restarted again.
2) Yes, both the IUSR_ and my own account has the "log on locally" right in the policy.
3) Done. Default Web Site -> WebFolder -> Properties -> Write is set togeather with Read, Directory browsing, Log visits and Index this resource. I've also deleted all entries in "Custom HTTP headers" under "HTTP Headers".
4) Done. It works OK.

Still got the problem...

I ran the steps in the article and it worked for me.

What happens if you just use IE to view the folder and you have anonymous turned on?

I was able to see the director, I put some files on the server so I would know if they listed properly when I visited the site.

Hi Mark,

When I open the folder in my IE from a client, I can see the files that lies there.
No errors at all.

Do you know if it is possible to turn on some specific WebDAV logging?

Thanks.

If you turn on all the IIS logging I think you maybe able to see something.

Also I would try a new directory, saem steps, etc. just to give it a go maybe you will see something different.
