  • First...Sorry I proposed as answer the previous question..it was a slip of the mouse. 

    I think there are two possible problems here.  First is that the account that is running your Web Broswer does not have permissions to access the MDS site itself (it is not in the User and Group Permission function), or the account does not have permissions on the SQL server instance, or it does not have permission on the IIS instance/box.  Check all of these.

    Second, I noticed that you did not mention in your original post that you set the "getHTTPEnabled" flag in the web.config file to true...did you do that? If not set it to true. (or set httpsGetEnabled to true if you are using secure sockets)..may I suggest that you also set, in your dev or test envoroment only, setting the includeExceptionDetailInFaults to true as well...it may save you some troubleshooting time)

     

    Without setting one of these to true you can't connect.....e.g. <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" httpsGetEnabled="false"/>

  • Hello

     

    you must connect to MDS Website with the MDS Admin account and grant access to other users in User management 

    what is the service account that you used in MDS IIS App Pool ?

  • I am having the same problem, server 2008 r2, iis 7.5, windows authentication enabled, authorization is to allow all users.  i installed mds and created the db and app pool under one user.  I can login to the mds web page when I use that initial installer user only.  I have logged in as that admin user to mds and added myself as a user through the web interface and when I try to login to the web page I get access denied unauthorized.    please advise.

  • The issues am having with MDS 'access denied' when using IE 8 256-bit most are Windows 7 users. 128-bit version of browser works fine. Any idea where to tweak the settings?

  • I had the same issue. It occurred because I used the configuration manager to set up a new website. This new website was created without windows authentication enabled. I also had to disable anaonymous authentication to get this to work.

     

    Hope that helps.

    Yes, I found this exact same issue when I was attempting to recreate an MDS site.

    All authentication methods except Windows had to be disabled in IIS.
