Cannot access Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 Web Administration site

I have installed Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 on Windows Server 2003 Sp2.  When I try to l connect to the web administration site I am prompted for credentials.  It doesn't seem to matter if put in the local administrator or the domain administrator I still get an "you are not authorized to view this page" message.  I have searched some kb articles and tried basic authentication, tried the impersonation in the components mmc, and no luck.  
Does anyone have any ideas here?  Is there any other way to create VM's?

Thanks.

Did you run IIS Lockdown?

You may have to tinker with the Authentication levels on the site in IIS to make it work.  I believe Basic should work, but Integrated would be a better option should you be able to get it working.

You may want to install this on your workstation and give it a shot:

Excellent.

You may want to load up that software I linked you to.  This is installed on a workstation.  Give it a shot, it's much better than the web interface.  MS hasn't officially released it, but it's a nice piece of code.
