IIS integrated authentication prompting for credentials
Posted on 2007-03-21
Customer of mine has the following issue:
They recently changed there IIS authentication from anonymous login to integrated authentication for there intranet site.
Everything is working, except they do not want to be prompted for credentials..
When the user account is NOT in this specific group, they do NOT get prompted for credentials.
When the user account is IN the specific group, they DO get prompted for credentials.
I suspect either some sort of misconfiguration in IIS OR a conflicting setting in the policy applied to that group. Now i checked with the customer that in the security tab of the home directory for the website, that the group has read and execute permission.
I have the RSOP for both when the user is in the group and when the user is not in the group, the only difference is this one additional policy that is applied.
Within this policy there are many settings defined, Including IE restrictions. Now does anyone know of any specific policies that would affect this integrated authentication, short of me copy and pasting the whole rsop on here. I can paste it at expert request.
Any ideas and help appreciated on this issue.
