WMS Anonymous user authentication

WMS Anonymous user authentication

Post by ChriS*Co2D » Fri, 11 Jul 2003 21:22:22


i had failed to startup the windows media service from the
very beginning, it shows an error of 0x8007052e, which is
logon failure: unknow user name or bad password.
i read the help and it says that there will be a anonymous
user created once you installed media server. and i found
that there is a user WMUS_NS1 already created, but when i
try to enable the plugin WMS Anonymous User
Authentication, it still prompts that "The Plug-in cannot
be enabled because the user name does not match the
settings for the Windows user account used for anonymous
guests". I already tried to reset the password on both
sides and it still doesn't work, so what should i do?

Hi:

Can you start WMS server and open the server UI? If you can not, I
suggest you uninstall the WMS and reinstall it again.

If you can open WMS UI, as you described go to My computer->Computer
management -> local users and groups -> users ->WMUS_NS1,
right click mouse select "reset password" to reset password. Then go to WMS
UI ->WMS Anonymous User Authentication properties windows
re-enter your password. See if it works. If it failed again, I suggest you
reinstall the WMS.

Thanks for using Windows Media Server 9

Thanks for answering my question

i tried to do that already but it still fails, i've uninstalled it and
reinstalled it again.
and i can see that it created the user called WMUS_NS1 already. but when i
go into the WMS UI
it still displays that "a critical error occurred for this service", in the
troubleshooting panel, still says that the WMS Anonymous User Authentication
Plug-in Error (0x8007052e), if i disabled this plugin, i can connect to the
files through mmst:// , but it prompts me for username and password, and i
tried all the username and password and none of them works, even the
administrator password. so that means i can never get it to work..

can anyone suggest me what can i do in order to fix it?

thanks and regards,
chris

WMS Anonymous user authentication

Chris,

If you changed the password for the user account in the Comp.
Management->Users and Groups->Users->WMUS_NS1 and also changed it in the
WMS ANonymous User AUthentication plug-in properties, it should all work.

If it doesn't work, then you can try any other user account. Create an
arbitrary user account call foo with a password of bar (I am saying this
just for example, you should always choose a strong password :-) ). Then on
the WMS Anonymous User AUthentication change the Username and password to
foo and bar. And see if you can enable the plug-in.

If it doesn't work, here are a few things to look at:
1. Did you change the user account under which the WIndows Media Services
run? The recommended user account under which Windows Media services works
should be the Network Service account.
2. When you did the reinstall of the Windows Media Server, did you delete
ALL the files under %WINDIR%\system23\windows media\server and its sub
directories? If not, you might want to do that and try again.
3. Also, just curious if this problem is exhibited with an upgrade from
Windows 2000 to Windows 2003 or if it is a clean installation?

Thanks,
Ravi

Dear Ravi,

Thanks for your reply, however, the problem still exists after i tried every
way that you mentioned.
it really screws me up...

it was setup through a clean installation and it's windows 2003 server
standard edition.
what should be the problem? i have totally no clue...

Regards,
Chris
