Running virtually in VMWare
I've done a default install of Moss on Server 2008 with IIS7 and IIS6 compatibility mode as one of the roles. The admin website came up fine with the only issue being I get an error: 'an unexpected error has occurred' with the correct address in the browser window. If I select 'Go back to site' the admin site then opens fine. I would like to solve this issue as well if possible.
I was able to create the SSP without an issue. I created a new site collection but when I go to this site I get a credential authentication window pop-up. I enter the farm admin credentials in but they are not accepted. The web browser displays Error 401.1 - Unauthorized. I went to \inetpub\wwwroot\wsss\virtualdirectories and gave 'Everyone' Read permissions. I still get this error. I added iusr\<computername> to the above folder and gave it read permissions as well. Same result. Anonymous access is not selected as this is a test site and I am not expecting users from outside the domain to access it.
I've done quite a few Moss installs with Server 2003/IIS6 but this is my first install using Server 2008 and IIS7.
