I have IIS7 installed on two Windows 2008 servers in NLB configuration.
It was working fine for a while, but now I can't log in to the IIS manager on either nodes(locally). The error is:
"Could not connect to the specified computer.
Details: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007052E) "

I'm using the domain admin account with the same password which gets me logged in to the server console.
What could be the problem?
