I have an issue whereby Im unable to access my sharepoint site from my workstation. Keeps prompting for my username and password and despite keying the credentials 3 times, it simply goes to a white screen. This is the same for IE 6 and 7 as well as for Firefox.
I had created a new Web and Site Collection accordingly and configured for port 80 accordingly. Authentication type is Windows using Integated Windows Authentication (NTLM).
However, whats weird is if i add any user to the Central Admin-->Site Actions-->Site Permissions--> (Ex. ABC) and grant read access and thereafter grant access to the Site Collection accordingly, the user is able to access from his workstation.
Though im new to Sharepoint, dont think its necessary to grant any access to the users at Central Admin.
On the WFEs, had attempted to disableloopbackcheck or Add BackConnectionHostNames but issue does not seem to be resolved.
Had added the site as trusted site in the user's workstation IE Setting as well but issue persists.
Currently only Sharepoint Timer, User Code host and Server search 14 are running using Domain accounts on the WFEs.
Not too sure if its a Sharepoint Settings Issue, IIS or if there are any security settings that need to be changed on the WFEs.
- WFEs are running on Windows server 2008 R2
- SQL running on SQL 2008
Would appreciate some help ! Thanks
