I have just set up a Microsoft Virtual Server and am getting the following error when I try and log in via the virtual server administration website.
-------------------------------
You are not authorized to view this page
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Please try the following:
"      Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
"      Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.
HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
Internet Information Services (IIS)
-------------------------------
I have gone through all of the security settings in IIS on this machine and they appear to match the other two virtual servers that I have in this domain. The only difference I can see is that this server happens to be a domain controller.

Does anyone know why this is?

The following resolved this issue:

Check the IIS settings.
==================

==Logon as the administrator on the server, click start>run>inetmgr, open
the IIS management console.

==Check under which Application Pool the website is working and then go to
that application pool under IIS manager.

==Right click on that application pool and click on properties.

==Go to the identity tab of that window and then change the security A/C
from Network Service to Local System.

==Restart the Application Pool.
