FrontPage Form submission - "You are not authorized to view this page".
Posted on 2011-10-05
I have an intranet site that was running fine, with Forms, on IIS 5, Windows 2000 Server. I recently moved it to a different server running Windows Server 2003, IIS 6. Everything works fine, except for the forms. There must be some sort of permissions issue.
If myself or another admin level user completes and submits a Form, it completes successfully - no problems. Any other domain user that tries to submit a form is prompted for user authentication and after entering it three times, it fails with the following message:
You are not authorized to view this page.
You do not have pemissions to view this page using your current user account.
Please try the following:
- If you have another user account with a higher level of permission, click your browser's back button to try again using that account.
- If you believe you should be able to view this page, contact the Web site administrator.
I've spent hours messing around with NFTS permission and IIS permisisons. Everything looks the same between my old IIS 5 box and the new IIS 6 box. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing the permission error?
