MDS Web UI "Access is Denied"

    Question

  • When I load the page for the web UI, I get the "Access is Denied" page.

    This is unexpected since I am using the credential supplied for the initial config; ie the credential is an MDS administrator.  I was able to use the web UI immediately after configuring the MDS dB and web app, but 2 hrs later I was not able to use it, getting the "Access is Denied" message.  Interestingly, I am able to use the Excel addin fine; the credential can send and retrieve.  I started an MDS trace and am getting the following.  Suggestions appreciated.
