Access Denied for Administrator on SharePoint


I'm using SharePoint 2007 on Windows 2003 64 bits. The SharePoint Farm contains only one server.

Everything works fine. Except on a Web Application : when I'm connected as Domain Administrator on the SharePoint Server, a prompt ask me credential. On another computer on the network, no prompt.

It's like on the SharePoint Server, on a particular Web App the Domain Admin can't access.

The domain admin is Farm Administrator and Web App Administrator for this Web App.

Any idea ?

If you are having trouble accessing the site FROM the SharePoint server, more than likely you need to disable loopback in the registry.
