IE 7 and integrated windows authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1038402216 posted

    I just installed IE 7. We have a intranet site running on IIS 6 that uses windows authentication. With IE 6 everything worked fine. Now with IE 7 it is prompting me to login. I checked to make sure the IE setting to use integrated windows authentication was enabled. Is this a bug in IE 7? Are there work arounds?

    On IIS7, Windows Authentication is an optional component not installed by default. 

    1) To install it, follow the instructions here: http://www.iis.net/default.aspx?tabid=2&subtabid=25&i=957.

    2) Then, enable windows authentication for your site, either using the new Administration tool (start>run>inetmgr.exe) or using command line as follows:

    > %systemdrive%\windows\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set config "Default Web Site/myapp" /section:windowsAuthentication /enabled:true

    Where you replace "Default Web Site/myapp" with "MySiteName/myvirtualpath".

    NOTE: if you have installer code that automatically enables windows authentication in the metabase, then you will need to install the optional "Compatibility" components to enable it to run.  You can use the manual steps above to enable windows authentication.

    I got selective reading bias :) WIth IE7, make sure your "Intranet settings" are turned on - otherwise IE wont authenticate you with your credentials on your intranet because it will treat intranet servers as internet servers.
