In iis6 web user password stay sync with logon user password

Post by luca » Fri, 02 Apr 2004 22:17:36


Hi, I switch to windows 2003 few weeks ago, my web sites run with
anonymous access enabled and the specified user is a particular user
dedicated to manage that web site. In w2000 when I change user
password iis5 stay sync and all get right, in w2003 web site became
not accessible until I retype password.

How can I solve this? Any advice?

SubAuthentication is not enabled on IIS6.0 by default. It is not enabled
because it is a security risk. IF you do want to enable it, you need to run
your web app pools as LocalSystem (which is also a security risk).

I suggest you configure your user account's password not to expire, and then
make it a very long, and very complex password. Enter this into IIS.

Cheers
