I'm trying to set up an FTP server using Windows Server 2003 with IIS 6.0 installed and with the AD isolation option.
My goal is to be able to manage FTP accounts via AD in addition to allowing all the users in our domain access, but I'm having the same problem that others are (530 User <username> cannot log in, home directory inaccessible. Login failed.) If this is unrealistic please let me know.
I've tried several solutions listed for this problem, but after several hours it's just not working for me:
• I've set "Allow Log On Locally" using the MMC to a pretty wide scope (authenticated users, users, and even the domain administrator specifically for testing), but that has had no effect. I've even set "Allow Log On Locally" at the domain level, also to no effect.
• I'm not able to set a home directory, since that option is unavailable when choosing the "Isolate users using Active Directory" option, but I set up a directory for Administrator (C:\Inetpub\ftproot\<domai
n name>\Administrator) just in case since it was mentioned in other answers.
• Both Read and Write permissions are enabled.
• Logging in with the format domainname\username has no effect.
• Anonymous connections are disabled at the FTP Sites level since it is not available at the actual site level.
I used the Browse feature to select both the user\default domain for browsing AD, but removed the ".com" suffix as recommended in the Note in http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/848968f3-baa0-46f9-b1e6-ef81dd09b015.mspx?mfr=true
, but this had no effect either.
I'm probably missing something simple, and I dont mind recreating the site from scratch, so if anyone that answers this would please provide detailed steps they would be much appreciated.
