Unable to login to administrate virtual server

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.
